Tony Scott United States, 1995

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.
