Desson Thomson
Washington Post
The scenario may be dumb and predictable, with a wimpy ending to boot, but it's also sort of fun. Full Review
Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
Crimson Tide is better watched for its toy appeal and high-priced talent than for any real suspense over where Hunter's mutinous instincts will lead the story. Full Review
James Berardinelli
It's a thrill-a-minute ride that concludes with a whimper, like a roller-coaster that has all the drops and twists early. Make no mistake, this is a good source of early summer fun, but with a little extra imagination, it could have been a whole lot more. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Crisp as the creases in its naval officers' uniforms, this tale of seething conflicts aboard an American submarine on the eve of nuclear war is strictly by-the-numbers, but hardly ever are traditional elements executed with such panache. Full Review
Marc Savlov
Austin Chronicle
Go see it, get the adrenaline rush, and then go home and forget about it. It's noisy and fun, but that's all it is. Full Review
