A stellar cast including Academy Award winner Denzel Washington, Gene Hackman, Viggo Mortensen and James Gandolfini resurfaces in a greater-than-ever Extended Edition of this intense hit thriller.
In the midst of a global crisis, the USS Alabama receives unconfirmed orders to launch its nuclear missiles - signaling the start of World War III! The tension escalates as the sub's respected commander (Hackman) and his brilliant executive officer (Washington) clash over the validity of their orders.... Battling each other for control of the sub!
As this epic stuggle rages under the sea, you take the command of edge-of-your-seat excitement and never-before-seen footage!
Crimson Tide is a very interesting action movie with a very believable story in today's world. It is not all about the explosions telling the story, the actors play a big part - and amazing actors it has too. Denzel Washington (Courage Under Fire, Remember The Titans) and Gene Hackman (Enemy Of The State, and a lot of westerns) deliver the goods in keeping the viewer interested.
It is also a very intense movie, with a tension that grows the more we learn about the 2 characters, whose opinions are as different as their skin colours.
The backup actors such as Viggo Mortensen (Lord of the Rings) and James Gandolfini (Sopranos) do their jobs well in adding to the onboard conflict when sides must be chosen.
Another good point of the movie is there doesn't seem to be a bad guy, leaving it up to the viewer, in a way, which keeps you thinking right to the end.
This edition of Crimson Tide is an extended version, but I didn't see that the extra footage explained anything of great importance to the movie. I always get a little annoyed when they release extended versions of movies I've already purchased, but that's just me.
To sum it up it's a good submarine/modern-threat movie, that won't grow dust on your dvd shelf.
