    But did you see the 5" gun mount firing at the beginning of the movie?

    In retrospect, I'll agree the movie wasn't very good. Might be Cage's worst movie. I look forward to Hacksaw Ridge.

    A Google search of "michael dickerson" yields a pro basketball player. Is that him?

    The 5" gun in the movie wasn't the type on the Indianapolis. And while the aerial view of the ship made it look like the 5" gun had a fairly rapid rate of fire, the air bursts of the rounds near the Japanese planes looked pretty consistent with a 5" AA gun.
