USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage: Directed by Mario Van Peebles. With Nicolas Cage, Tom Sizemore, Thomas Jane, Matt Lanter. During World War II, an American navy ship is sunk by a Japanese submarine leaving 890 crewmen stranded in shark infested waters.

“The true story of the Indianapolis is a compelling one of bravery, intrigue, unimaginable suffering and governmental cowardice. This movie never comes close to conveying any of that. It rushes through the set-up, never pausing for us to get to know any of the principals in any depth. The movie canu0026#39;t wait to get to the sharks, but when it does, it almost turns into a comedy of unconvincing action, gaps in logic, ridiculous dialogue and clumsy CGI. Poor Nic Cage is reduced to a near catatonic state, forced into unnatural situations and dubious decisions. In Jaws, Spielberg did a better job in five minutes with Quintu0026#39;s recounting of his Indianapolis experience than this movie does in two hours. A fiasco. McHaleu0026#39;s Navy was more realistic.”
