Good movie...

This is a very entertaining movie. I am amazed at all the work and talent it must take to get just about everything right. Some of the reviews say "don't watch this -- Red October Is better." Well, duh, we've all seen Red October and the other sub movies. So don't consider the naysayers. Just sit back for a couple of hours and enjoy a great action flic.

I found this movie pretty tense and gripping. I thought it was a good movie and story.

One of the best action movies that you've not heard of! Lots of plot twists. A couple of casting mistakes and it would be 4 stars plus. Old man and Common not best choices for being Generals!

This should have been a very good movie; something more than an "action flick." But it's not. Blame the script. Blame the director.

However, VISUALLY the movie is a winner. That enough for you? Credit the special effects crew at Toronto's SPINVFX. Terrific work, on all the major scenes. There's very little that's actually real in this movie--except the especially-constructed submarine interior and the Pentagon's communications room with its wall-of-screens displaying what the commandos (or black ops or whatever they're called) are transmitting from the (computer generated) Russian naval base.

There are easily a dozen moments test any movie-goers "suspension of disbelief" to the max, including the outrageous over-acting of two two players--the young guy who plays the submarine's XO (who would have been sent to the brig within seconds of his first rant at the captain) and the second is over-the-top Gary Oldman as some senior "Go to Defcon 1!!" military muckamuck. Hope the money was good, Gar.

If you're tempted to watch Hunter Killer because it's a sub movie, do yourself a favor and watch any of these far better sub movies instead:

Crimson Tide, The Hunt for Red October, Das Boot, Black Sea, Phantom, U571, K19: The Widowmaker, Submerged, 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, and even Down Periscope.

And if you still haven't gotten enough underwater stuff after that, check out The Abyss, Pioneer, and Pressure.

I loved this action film. Gerard Butler is very good, Gary Oldman, on the other hand, seems out of place. (Oldman plays a smaller role, so he isn't the foremost personality on the screen.) A modern submarine story, with sub-plots that intertwine throughout the script. I liked the story line; it was very clean. The sound in the first 20 mins. could have had a better mix. However, just a small thing in the beginning for me. A war scenario with a lot of action and intense drama. Very enjoyable.

Once you suspend your disbelief at how American derring-do and technology help to penetrate a high security Russian zone, you'll find this movie is full of action, suspense, and makes for a thoroughly enjoyable watch.

A solid action thriller~ better than Olympus has fallen franchise. Characters and dialogues in Hunter Killer are clear and to-the-point. If it’s trimmed down 15 minutes to a tighter script, it’d be 5 stars :)
