    It looks like that is going to be an amazing movie, like some of the great epic war movies that came before like Saving Private Ryan, or others of that type. I think Nick Cage is one of our finest actors and can do the role justice. The movie Unbroken was another amazing war movie that showed the triumph of the human spirit against all odds. USS Indianapolis looks like another one.

    A horribly mis-guided mission in that top secrecy prevented even highest "Brass" from being aware that Indianapolis would be unprotected and unguided order-wise following the delivery of a simple metal box.
