good true story - USS Indianapolis review by gazmb

Spoiler Alert

Really enjoyed this , sad true story of all those lives lost and so many in the water after it sank. Disgusting how a country uses brave men and women who sacrifice for their country only to be used as scape goates .

So-so True Story Shark Attack Movie - USS Indianapolis review by PV

Spoiler Alert
14/01/2018

I watched a TV movie about this maybe 20 years ago - I cannot remember what it was called but I remember it, so it must have been interesting.

The one BIG difference is the cast of that was 100% white whereas in this movie they go to great lengths to show black sailors - though I do wonder whether the crew was mixed black and white or if that is a pc add-on for our modern sensibilities! Certainly there would have been a lot of racial abuse in real life!

Also, this being a movie and not a simple TV effort, the producers/director/writer feel that they have to create a strong 3 act narrative - and it does that through a rather silly 'ring' subplot, and of course the trial and legal stuff at the end.

But still an OK effort. But I'd love to know the TRUTH of what happened and who the crew were (all male though for sure! So no women eaten by sharks today thank you!)
