I found this 1963 war film, based on a true and indeed very famous story, watchable, but nothing more. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

As probably everybody knows, the main hero of this war time story is young John Fitzgerald Kennedy. The future president of United States joined US Navy in 1942. Once his training finished, he received the rank of Lieutenant (j.g.) and was sent to Solomon Islands. In April 1943 he was given command of motor torpedo boat PT-109 which he commanded until a certain night in August of the same year...

I will deliberately not say here anything more about the real events in the unlikely case you are not yet familiar with them and want actually discover the whole story by watching this film. Let's just say that his actions as commander of PT-109 earned JFK a well-deserved reputation of an authentic, FEARLESS war hero - and also one helluva swimmer...))) I especially stress here the word fearless because I wouldn't do some of the things he had done for ALL THE GOLD IN THE WORLD!

This is a watchable war film - there are some good shots of torpedo boats, there is one nice battle action scene, one quite colourful character, one or two humorous moments and a couple of smart one liners. Cliff Robertson did as well as the scenario allowed him - and he certainly looks a little bit like Kennedy himself. Scenario tried to stick to real story as much as humanly possible. Finally, in one scene the "Star Trek" fanatics with really good eyes will recognize George Takei (Mr Sulu) as the helmsman of a Japanese destroyer...

Sadly, those are more or less all the good things I can say about this film, as it has also many flaws, the most important of which are the following:

Bought this for my dad who love's it. Another perfect purchase from/via Amazon. Would recommend the seller. Just be aware it's region 1 and the UK is region 2. For my dads DVD player I just put the model into Google and bingo I found the unlock code to make it play any region DVD.

A brilliant film telling this true war story of JFK. Fact is always stranger than fiction and this film has stood the test of time. A great film.
