  1. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    Going into this movie knowing very little about it except who was in it and who made it, I have to say I never expected so much script time spent on horses, the Silver Surfer and Star Trek. But that's what you get when you hire QT for a punch up. Either way, CT is very entertaining, and it was nice to see Denzel really respect another actor for a change. Perhaps because of that, this one his best performances.

  2. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    Tense submarine thriller with underwater action is a great genre that always give some entertainment and this film is no exception. Adding to this is the great teaming of Gene Hackman and Denzel Washington who are at odds against each other as officer goes against officer. It is another well-crafted Hans Zimmer score in the film too.

  3. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    A well plotted and tense war action film

  4. lucia lurzo's rating of the film Crimson Tide

  5. truffraud's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    appreciate that scott gently holds the audience's... collective... hand through obscure and unintelligible military jargon and strategy. well-made. don't pause long enough to think about the consequences of valorizing the inhumanity of war

  6. Superfrog's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    Introduces complex subjects and ethics in a war action thriller, which is commendable. Too many guns but no bullet fest, which is also commendable. The political setup is hopelessly biased and reflects the 90s fantasies of the state department. Eventually problematic as it serves as justification for a a first strike, using a massively contrived scenario while avoiding to explore fully the consequences thereof.

  7. The Mayor Of Hell's rating of the film Crimson Tide

  8. Mark O. Stack's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    Washington and Hackman throwing down in a verbal battle is "The Shit."

  9. Thomas's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    Adequate 'battle-of-wits' suspense drama.

  10. melly's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    The only movie with an EAM action scene. Military nuke/missileer/comms types, this is the closest you'll get to your day in the Hollywood sun.

  11. mjgildea's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    Despite starring Denzel Washington and being directed by Tony Scott (admittedly this came from an era when his work was watchable) I actually really liked Crimson Tide. Admittedly, the rich dialogue and Gene Hackman did a lot of the bull work but overall it felt like a less obvious remake (or reimagining if you're an idiot) of The Caine Mutiny. I kind of wish I saw this sooner.

  12. CafeGradiva's rating of the film Crimson Tide

  13. Keith Fletcher's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    An un-credited Tarantino "ghost" re-write plus two great performances by Washington and Hackman combine with sharp direction and tense suspense.

  14. Tigrão's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    Super solid piece of entertainment based on a good script.

  15. Gondo's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    Nowhere do people sweat like they do in Tony Scott films.

  16. Xesus Duarte Patiño Rumbo's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    One of the best comic-book dialogue scene ever.

  17. _Lilith_'s rating of the film Crimson Tide

    It's a privilege to watch Mr. Hackman explode.

  18. Dave's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    Look, nobody's ever going to confuse Tony Scott with (insert revered classic director here), but the man is the best at what he does - creating entertaining popcorn action films and occasionally rising toward something more (Man on Fire, Deja Vu). This one never hits those heights, but it's still an entertaining film with some very good individual performances.

  19. Easton Dubois's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    Men and Metal for Two Nutbusting Hours.

  20. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    Typically slick action drama from the Don Simpson/Jerry Bruckheimer factory and director Tony Scott. Strong performances and top-notch production values can't make up for a predictable and generic story - for all the tight close-ups and pulse-pounding Hans Zimmer score, the suspense feels processed and just never really works. Not a terrible film, but not particularly memorable.

  21. Phil Worfel's rating of the film Crimson Tide

    Candy. I love this one. Tarantino's script doctoring is fantastic.
