Movie Review: PT-109

Who doesn’t love a good World War II movie? Despite its flaws, PT-109 is just that: an action-packed tale of courage and loyalty in the Pacific War.

This 1963 film follows the adventures of John “Jack” F. Kennedy, a young skipper who negotiates his way into active duty during the Pacific War. Despite his doubtful crew and cantankerous commander, Kennedy gets an old boat in ship-shape within a week. The boat, PT-109, is sent on a mission to rescue American soldiers trapped on a Japanese-held island. When the PT-109 is destroyed, Kennedy and the rest of his crew must keep their wits about them to survive and escape.
