From Amazon.co.uk

In the typical Don Simpson-Jerry Bruckheimer mould(the partnership yielded Top Gun and Days of Thunder, among many other films), this 1995 drama is a combination of one-dimensional but enjoyable performances, lots of high-tech nonsense taking place onscreen, and mechanistic movie-making at its loudest and most seizure-inducing. Gene Hackman and Denzel Washington play nuclear submarine officers squaring off over the former's apparent intention to do some unauthorized damage to an enemy. Tony Scott (Top Gun) directed, bringing his lustre and pop commercial sense to go with all that Simpson-Bruckheimer eye candy. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent picture quality 27 Nov 2012
By R. Forse TOP 100 REVIEWER
I won't use this review to discuss the plot, direction, or performances in this film - I'm sure you know all about that by now. However, what I will say is that within my ever expanding collection of Blu Ray films, this was one of the first I bought and it is easily one of the best in terms of the picture detail and quality. The upscaling of the original footage has lead to an incredible viewing experience and it still remains my 'go to film' when I want to show friends and family the kind of experience that they can expect from Blu Ray.

I bought it on Blu Ray because at the time there was not much difference is cost between this and the regular DVD version and what I got was a real gem and an unexpected visual treat.

By Mr. Stephen Kennedy TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After the 80's unthinking testosterone action movies, the 90's marked a real change in action ouput, even from the Bruckheimer / Simpson producing team - and so came about this unusually intelligent war movie.
Following in the tradition of classic submarine movies like `The Hunt for Red Octobe' or `Das Boot', there are all the traditional action notes you would expect - torpedo attack, flooding compartments, sinking towards crush depth etc., all done with the technical and editorial perfection you would expect from Tony `Top Gun' Scott. However, all the action is merely a backdrop for a real character study and moral dilemna.
Hackman's veteran Captain is of the old school, `I like things simple' approach. When unrest in Russia becomes critical enough for them to receive orders to launch their nuclear payload, he sets out to perform his duty. However, a second message is received - and it is incomplete, therefore can not be verified. The radio goes down, and the sub is now out of touch with the rest of the world. The `new school' Executive Officer played by Denzel Washington feels strongly enough that they should not follow through with the launch until the message is verified, leading him into direct conflict with the Captain and a tense, riveting and exciting showdown ensues.
The action is note perfect, but it is the acting that makes the movie stand out. Seeing Washington and Hackman `mano-a-mano', cannot fail to knock your socks off with its intensity. Indeed, all the actors have their moments to shine, including a pre-Lord of the Rings Viggo Mortensen, and an excellent George Dzundza playing `Chief of the Boat'.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the top three films of all time... 5 April 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This film had the strapline: "tension you can chew" and that description is spot on. Hackman and Washington are perfectly cast as opposites in the claustrophobic and tense environment of a nuclear submarine. Not sure that the Blu-Ray is much better quality than the DVD, though...

the film is almost perfect... HD transfer and sound are incredible given the age of the film but there is a huge plot hole [ !!!! SPOILER !!!! ] A captain who threatened to shoot a random rating in the head with his pistol to get information from another crew member would be prosecuted and jailed , not given early retirement [ !!!! SPOILER !!!! ] this oversight is so absurd it sticks out like a sore thumb. This film should not have had a happy ending.... simples..... but the rest of the film is as tight as a but so 4 stars easily if you can ignore that one plot-bomb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Blu Ray of an Epic Film 26 Jun 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
And to think so many people wasted their time watching The Hunt for Red October. This is the better film by a country mile.

Denzel Washington is good, Gene Hackman is awesome and at times quite frightening. Hans Zimmer's score fits this epic film perfectly. Tony Scott's (RIP) direction is tight and he keeps momentum at all times.

The Blu Ray is significantly better than most 1990s films, with a surprisingly clean picture during the many dark scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most excellent 30 Dec 2009
This is the best film I have seen in a long time. Gripping from start to finish, I did not know until the very end what was going to happen.

The cast is excellent. Little else is.

I hoped this would be an edge-of-the-seat thriller, but it was difficult to get invested in a film that was so predictable. Read more
