Product description

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 --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Synopsis

When Russian rebels gain control of nuclear weapons in the USSR, the United States retaliates by deploying the USS Alabama, a nuclear submarine commanded by Captain Frank Ramsey (Gene Hackman). Veteran soldier and Naval legend Ramsey selects Lt. Commander Ron Hunter (Denzel Washington)--a Harvard graduate who prefers using brains over weapons--as his Executive Officer. While submerged, the Alabama is attacked by a Russian sub and loses radio contact just as an order is being transmitted from headquarters. Old Navy dog Ramsey firmly believes that the interrupted transmission ends with an order to fire their nuclear missiles at the Russian rebels. Hunter, desperate to avoid starting World War III, is determined to re-establish radio contact and act only after complete orders are received. Without the second-in-command's agreement, the missiles cannot be launched, and soon Ramsey and Hunter are engaged in a tense battle of wills, forcing the crew to choose sides. Produced by Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer (Top Gun, The Rock) and in the tradition of his own gritty thrillers Man on Fire and Revenge, director Tony Scott keeps the tension running high in this fast-paced military thriller. Hackman scores as the tradition-bound Ramsey, and Washington is superb as the thoughtful young officer who feels compelled to take a stand against his superior. Crimson Tide remains an intense and intelligent thriller. --This text refers to the DVD edition.

I rated this 111 min REGION B/2 DVD as ok, I enjoyed the film although the beginning was a little slow, good acting by Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman but the story line was a little far fetched.
No nonsense combat veteran Captain Frank Ramsey (Hackman) and his newly installed first officer Ron Hunter (Washington) are caught in the middle of a global crisis. On board a nuclear submarine they're heading for Russia where radical nationalists are threatening to start World War 111. But when they receive an unverified message to launch their missiles, Ramsey and Hunter clash over the validity of the orders. With nuclear holocaust close at hand, mutiny erupts on the sub-pitting the entire crew against each other in a showdown that will decide the fate of the world

What can I say about this film, well I'll say this, put film in dvd player , get your favourite drink and snacks shove the dog out of your favourite chair put your phone on silent and settle back for a truly brilliant film, Hackman and Washingtons characters bounce off one another in a very poweful drama. The film is easily up there with "Red October" and dare I say "Das Boot" its that good

A gripping story made even more terrifying now we have a lunatic in the White House. Characterisations are weird and not particularly believable, but I guess that is meant to add to the human dimension of the movie. It's not meant to be a documentary, after all! Personally, I don't find it credible that anyone with the manifest personality defects of the captain would get within a thousand miles of commanding a nuclear sub, but then I never dreamt that the US would ever put Trump in the White House.

You can easily predict the outcome, but the actual end of the story is satisfying. The acting is as good as it gets and various twists and turns keep your attention. Overall a good movie is you like action drama. There is a lot of swearing but it is in context. It says 15 so I suppose standards have changed but I wouldn't watch it with a 15 year old daughter not necessarily because of the four letter words but some of the references in jokes might need explanation I would not want to be required to give.

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.

Not reviewing the film although excellent in my opinion, (IMDB 7.3/10) this is for the Blu ray itself, the film is a 1995 so wasn't expecting too much due to age of film, however I have seen this on DVD and in my opinion this is a massive improvement in picture quality, this is a nice transfer, soundtrack is spot on too with 5.1 uncompressed audio, and presented in 2.40:1, have always liked this film but in this quality a joy to watch again. Highly recommended purchase.

Good movie!
Audio is excellent (5.1) (DTS HD MA and LPCM) for those of us who wants the very best!
Video quality is also very good, with rich details.
A very good and breathtaking experience when Denzel and Hackman (among other excellent actors!) drives us thought the experience of a near nuclear strike over the old continent...

edge of the sofa film - tension all the way. Scary what if scenario about pressing the nuclear switch. Washington and Hackman are brilliant protagonists.
