A modern aircraft carrier is thrown back in time to 1941 near Hawaii, just hours before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
During shooting of the opening shot where the CAG's Tomcat is taking off from Pearl Harbor, the film crew actually underestimated the blast radius of the Tomcat's exhaust and one of their cameras was blown over when the plane went to full afterburner, which resulted in the shot being filmed from a slightly different angle than originally planned.

When the XO is talking with the Chief about 'breaking the code', the unit the Chief is sitting in front of is a computer terminal, an early version of automated communications equipment, clearly noticeable by the red teletype tape above the monitor- it's an Baudot 8-level tape, not used for communications traffic (which used Baudot 5-level) for torn tape relay. The location is in a communications space, as evidenced by a fragment of a safe's red 'OPEN' label and, in the background, power panels trimmed in red paint (indicating power sources for equipment used in cryptographic operations).
Norwegian cinema version was cut by some seconds to get a 12 rating.
