This film is not a bar on the many post-WW2 war films. Any one of hundreds was better directed, more atmospheric, more realistic, and of greater dramatic effect.

Poor CGI is much less effective than using models and traditional cinematic techniques. It seems that the greater the budget the worse the results.

Even the name is odd - there was no courage in being abandoned and lost in shark-infested water, just terror and desperation. And incompetence and callousness by the US navy.

The summary is misleading too - the crew may have delivered nuclear weapons, and perhaps they ended the war. But they were also responsible for the greatest single act of mass murder the world has ever seen, and the most deadly war crime in history.
