USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage online movie review - Better than Expected

To my surprise I was actually enjoying the movie. I did not put up too high expectation as I was not sure what the movie was all about and as I said, there were not a lot of star power (except Nicolas Cage who sometimes can play in good movies, but sometimes not too good).

This movie was not a war movie where you would be bombarded with the scenes of war through out the whole film. Instead it was more like a survival drama movie, with the war as background. The focus of the movie were on the crew of USS Indianapolis as well as the captain.

Watching this movie made me read more about the history of Captain McWay (yes you can read in wikipedia about him as this film was based on true events and quite honoring the actual events). It was sad seeing his life story but also glad at the end. The movie had a lot of touching moments especially when they relate to those crew and the captain. The relationship between the crews, the sacrifice and even the love triangle between Bama, Mike and Clara were also nice to see.

This movie was not having a large budget like other blockbuster movies and therefore please do not expect very high tech special effects. But that was not the main attraction anyway. So if you are looking for the kind of war movie with war scenes and cool special effects, perhaps the 2001 movie Pearl Harbor may suit you better. But if you are looking for a survival drama, then this one would totally be satisfying. In addition to the touching moments, there were of course some fun moments and suspenseful moments at the sea involving sharks. Those definitely made the audience (including my wife) screamed at times.

Overall, I think this movie is worth to watch. This prove that it does not have to have a high budget to produce a good movie. But then again, this is my personal view. As usual, people may not be able to appreciate certain movies which other found entertaining and vice versa.
