Movie Summary

Director:
Andrew Davis
Released:
1992
Rating:
R

Set on the USS Missouri, just as the battleship is about to be decommissioned, disgruntled former CIA operative William Strannix has partnered with Missouri's Executive Officer, Commander Krill to steal the battleship's nuclear Tomahawk missiles. Their plan to sell the stolen warheads to a hostile foreign nation is almost foolproof. Krill's men take over the ship, disguised as the catering team seeing to the Captain's farewell party. Strannix and Krill believe they have everything under control, but neither is aware of Chief Petty Officer Casey Ryback's fabled Navy SEAL career. After a scandal forces his retirement from the SEALs, Ryback takes a position as cook on the Missouri to finish out his twenty years of service. Now he's the only man who can prevent Strannix and Krill from putting America at risk. Ryback's only help for this dangerous mission is Miss July 1989 Jordan Tate, a stripper hired for the Captain's party. Can the ex-Navy SEAL and the stripper defeat Strannix and Krill before it's too late?
