Wires towing torpedoes sure are easy to see
I wonder if this movie was the unintended victim of digital remastering, as was "War of the Worlds," where wires showed up in effects shots that had previously not been visible and should have been digitally removed. I don't remember noticing the wires the last time I saw this, but I was rather young then.
My people skills are fine. It's my tolerance of morons that needs work.
