This movie is awesome. Ah the golden 80’s when movies didn’t need to have tight scripts or good acting, and could just be funny and entertaining! This one has a crazy plot, and a crazy Gary Busey, great scenes and funny lines.
(Trivia: the original script title of the movie was “Dreadnought”)
Here’s my plot of the movie: Steven Seagal a former Navy SEAL, now “just the cook”, is the only person who can stop a gang of terrorists when they sieze control of a US Navy battleship. His renegade partner to take over the ship is Miss July 1989, whom he rescued from the birthday cake and his arch-enemies are crazy psychopath Gary Busey and a gone-off-the-deep-end 60’s-wannabee-rocker Tommy Lee Jones.
Here are some of my favorite lines from the film:
*Casey Ryback: Steven Seagal (good guy)
*Jordan Tate (Miss July ’89): Erika Eleniak (good gal)
*Commander Krill: Gary Busey (bad guy)
*William Strannix: Tommy Lee Jones (bad guy)
Casey Ryback: It’s morse code.
Jordan Tate: What are they saying?
Casey Ryback: They’re saying “Get me the f*** out of here”.
William Strannix: You’re a maniac. Drowning your own crew.
Commander Krill: They never liked me anyway.
Doumer: I bet they f*****’ love ya now, huh?
Casey Ryback: Krill’s a maniac! Go tell the captain he spit in my soup!
Casey Ryback: Get my pies out of the oven!
Jordan Tate: So who are you? Are you, you, like, some special forces guy or something?
Casey Ryback: Nah. I’m just a cook.
Jordan Tate: A cook?
Casey Ryback: [Whispering] Just a lowly, lowly cook.
Jordan Tate: Oh, my God, we’re gonna die.
Ensign Taylor: We still have a week together.
Casey Ryback: I guess that means I won’t get to see you go through puberty.
Jordan Tate: I hate being alone.
Casey Ryback: Do you hate being dead?
Tom Breaker: Look, Bill, if this is about reliving the 60’s, you can forget about it, buddy. The movement is dead.
William Strannix: Yes, of course! Hence the name: movement. It moves a certain distance, then it stops, you see? A revolution gets its name by always coming back around in your face. You tried to kill me you son of a bitch… so welcome to the revolution.
