Main Characters Kevin Costner : as Kenny O’Donnell (Assistant to the President) Bruce Greenwood: as John F. Kennedy(President) Steven Culp: as Robert F. Kennedy(Attorney General)
Forty years after the blockade by the United States, the Soviet Union and Cuba brought the world to the brink of the unthinkable nuclear war. On the evening of October 16, 1962, President John F. Kennedy was confronted with what could have been the biggest world disaster he would ever encounter. The CIA had detailed information of Soviet nuclear installations under construction on the island of Cuba, and if these nuclear weapons should get launched, over 80 million people could have been killed in a matter of 5 minutes. Cuba being only 90 miles off the Florida Coast, the President and his advisors had to make a very wise decision about how the United States would respond. The movie portrays how close we came to nuclear warfare during the “Cuban Missile Crisis.”
Kenny O’Donnell played by (Kevin Costner ) is speaking to a pilot in the U.S. Air Force before he and his men execute this last mission to find out the progress of the installation of nuclear missiles by the Soviet Union in Cuba, but during this conversation Kenny O’Donnell makes it very clear by orders of the President that no words are to be said to anyone if he should happen to get fired upon or even shot down, for whatever the reason the answer will not be that the Soviet Union or the Cubans were responsible—otherwise the Joint Chiefs of Staff would retaliate and probably provoke a nuclear response from the Soviets.
The music gave a feeling of anticipation. There was violin sounds that grew louder as the threat of danger approached. A trumpet played when the plane completed it’s journey; this indicated a successful mission.
There was a line of F-16 planes which indicated that they were going to be used to shoot pictures of Cuba. A camera was shown as evidence that pictures of Cuba were being taken. Missiles were shown as proof that the installations of nuclear missiles were close to becoming operational.
Wispy sounds fire sounds drums Bullets people yelling engine sounds from the thrust of the fighter jets as they flew over Cuba the sounds of cameras clicking as they flew over the targeted area
. The bluish sky and the majority of the colors in this scene were camouflage, with lots of greens and tans, including the scenery when they fly over the bright green land with a murky river that ran through it. Also a blue shadow of mountains was highlighted in the background.
Throughout the entire movie the costumes that were used were all professional attire, just as you would expect for politicians and presidential advisors. The attire was suit and tie, except for the military uniforms. As for the scene, the pilots were dressed in flight suits, black gloves and a blackish colored helmet.
o The camera angles were close-ups of the characters and the planes. The camera angled down as the plane flew over Cuba and focused on the lands, as the Cubans and Russians surround the missiles.
The positioning and movement were very quick as the planes flew over Cuba. The planes twisted and turned as they maneuvered through the air avoiding gun fire.
There were minimal shadows on the land, which portrayed it as being an overcast day in Cuba.
