Plot Summary
A US submarine crew is tasked with rescuing the Russian President after a coup, but they have to do it without starting a world war
Star #3
It's been a long time since a great submarine movie has come along. CRIMSON TIDE was almost 25 years ago, and THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER came out in 1990. While HUNTER KILLER isn't quite in the same league as those other films, it is close.

The action and suspense start immediately and they don't let up for the full two hours. There were several moments where I was holding my breath as the scenes unfolded.

The only downside to this film is that it gets a little far-fetched near the end, and there are a couple of minor plot holes and moments of convenience scattered about, but they aren't so big that they take away from the overall experience. Also, some of the conflict between some of the characters seems to be a bit contrived.

If you like action/suspense/war films this one is a must-see. It is compelling and exciting from the opening scene on. You should also try to see it in the biggest theater possible to get the most out of the effects and sounds.
