Review - Destination Tokyo

I would have given it a higher rating but the special effects were so cheesy that I couldn't help but notice them — like the strings that were used to manipulate the toy sub in the underwater scenes. Being a wartime movie, the propaganda was on full blast, but from a historical perspective, I find that interesting.
