"...Cary Grant gives one of the soundest performances of his career..."
Destination Tokyo - Review is taken from 'The Films of Cary Grant' by Donald Deschner (1973):
"Even moviegoers who have developed a severe allergy for service pictures should find Destination Tokyo, the high among the superior films of the war. Certainly, in technical exposition and sheer, harrowing melodrama, the Warner Brothers' newest tribute to the armed forces rates very near the top of the list.
What with the film running two hours and fifteen minutes, just everything that could and does happen to an American submarine - short of an unhappy ending - occurs aboard the Copperfin.
As the Copperfin's captain, Cary Grant gives one of the soundest performances of his career; and John Garfield, William Prince, Dane Clark, and the rest of the all-male cast are always credible either as ordinary human beings or extraordinary heroes.
