Movie Reviews

A nasty sting
C. Dunn | New Albany, IN | 05/04/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This dvd is amazing. Being an amature WWII historian I found this to be a pleasent surprise. The footage of this remarkable lady in her original and re-incarnations are just awe inspiring. The combat footage is jaw dropping and you as the viewer can see first hand why The U.S.S. Hornet is/was a lady to NOT be messed with.
A BIG bonus is that on the special features menu there is the 8 minute short film "Torpedo Squadron" which (I believe) is directed by John Ford. This is a nice (and yes tearful) rememberance of Torpdeo Squadron 8 (the ill-fated TBD Devastators at the Battle Of Midway).
This IS A MUST HAVE dvd for your collection. If you are as enthusiastic and/or hungry for vintage WWII carrier war footage/history as I am then pick this dvd up at once."
