Really love this one, gotta get it!
4 September 2003 | by (Davie, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of my all-time favorite submarine movies, the other 2 being CRIMSON TIDE and HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER. Having served on an SSBN it brings back lots of memories. And I just re-read the book. Great action and tense drama. Looking to get a copy of this. Hoped it'd come out on DVD, but so far it hasn't. I'd buy a copy of the movie on VHS if someone has a good copy, please email me.
