Description

Storyline

PT 109 Dramatization of President John F. Kennedy’s wartime experiences during which he captained a PT boat, took it to battle and had it sunk by a Japanese destroyer. He and the survivors had to make their way to an island, find food and shelter and signal the Navy for rescue.  Most men would have given up…But not the crew of PT 109

Excellent little war movie

 

PT 109 This movie has some great characters, some nice action, humor, and is really enjoyable to watch. The fact that it’s based on real life incidents from JFK’s time in the Navy makes it that much better. There are some nice touches that show that the boat wasn’t the best in the fleet and JFK wasn’t shown as a Superman. One of my favorite movie lines is from this movie. The boat has been sunk, several men are hurt and JFK gives a little speech to try to raise everyone’s spirits and concludes his positive spin by saying the “odds are with us”. Robert Culp very irritated says “We are trapped behind enemy lines, no food, no medical supplies, no one knows where we are, Japanese patrols are all around us, how can you stand there and say the odds are with us??” JFK says “I guess it’s a character flaw”.

The 60s and 70s would have been so much better for everyone if JFK had 8 years in the White House.

It was a excellent movies and well worth a viewers time.For a era piece I feel that it showed how Kennedy got hurt and how he saved the lives crew even after getting hurt bad himself. The locations for the filming of this piece was excellent and true to life. The life on those cardboard boats were tough and the men had to endure very severe living quarters as such. It also showed how Kennedy got his crew selected and how they came to help get the boat seaworthy in such a short time. i would recommend this file to all war film buffs and those who enjoy a action film. The acting was good for the times of the 60’s when we were getting ready for Vietnam and the bay of pigs issue.
