Crimson Tide

Crimson TideBBBB.5

(out of 5)


What a ride! Submarines haven’t been this much fun since The Hunt For Red October, and if the fact that this film’s advertising campaign (red poster and everything) is completely ripped off from that Sean Connery vehicle is stopping you from renting this high-octane thriller, don’t let it!  and  are fantastic as bickering captain and executive officer on a submerged vessel, one that literally finds itself up shit creek without a paddle when their nuclear weapons-armed sub is being threatened by a similar vehicle that was stolen by the Russians. Hackman wants to follow the rules and wait for orders, but Washington knows that headquarters doesn’t know all the information and therefore cannot be the only thing worth relying on to deal with the situation. Mutiny On The Bounty madness ensues, and it’s all perfectly written, edited and scored, giving what is without a doubt the best film Tony Scott has ever made. Look for a great supporting performance by .
