Storyline

The crew of the nuclear submarine USS Ulysses rescues supposed victims of a boat disaster, but the victims turn out to be terrorists intent on capturing nuclear weapons aboard the sub. Only a former SEAL, now a submarine consultant, can save the crew by sliding aboard while the sub is underwater. The term "crash dive" refers to the sudden dropping of a sub to escape detection, an act that a nuclear sub is never supposed to make. Of course, it comes into play in this film.

Poor „Die hard" on submarine
25 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is the first movie to place the DIE HARD scenario on a submarine. I guess that this makes this movie somewhat important historically. It doesn't change the fact that this movie sucks.

It was nice to see Catherine Bell ("JAG" TV series). Too bad she had a rather small part and the romance between her and Michael Dudikoff is rather unbelievable. I remember that the "sex scene" at the end is terribly lame. Sex in clothes ?! Come on ! "Crimson tide" , "The Hunt for Red October" , "Under siege" , "Die hard"… All good movies. Watch them. Don't waste your time on "Crash dive". Sadly , it's still one of Dudikoff better movies. I give it 1/10.
