Re: loved the drams. loved the cgi. loved the story. I wil buy the DVD...
It was the Salem. But in the movie it was stated that the Graf Spee was disguised as an USN cruiser.
I refused to watch the 'Battle of the River Plate' for years because she was represented by a US heavy cruiser. Mind you I was a bit 'precious' about such anomalies then!
I came from the decades that cardboard ships blew up like candles on the fake horizon. I came from the time when a US post war cruiser stood in for a pocket battleship . I was overjoyed just to see live Canadian CORVETTE in the right c a m o and all in a battle scene.
In these times I was entertained seeing my favorite male actor con the bridge. Quad 40 ss in this time frame ? ....so what.. willing to overlook ...the WWII vintage equipment worked for me. Yes sir I ll buy the DVD . and i loved the new MIDWAY despite the warts and all -- and Woody H. looked just fine .
