San Francisco Chronicle
Two hours of nonstop, nail-biting tension and anxiety.
91
Entertainment Weekly
When the submarine has to dive 400 meters beneath the surface to avoid detection, you can practically feel the water pressure crushing in on the sailors.
88
New York Daily News
The action is tightly focused and well-paced.
80
Rolling Stone
A rip-roaring action adventure.
75
Christian Science Monitor
Full of old tricks - cuts between worried faces and overheated gauges inching into the red zone - but director Mostow pulls most of them off with conviction and pizazz.
75
New York Post
A formulaic and predictable movie that combines minimal characterization with some irritating implausibility.
75
San Francisco Examiner
Certainly it isn't about to give "Das Boot" a run for its money - but nevertheless it is irresistible entertainment.
75
Baltimore Sun
Sets up a mood of tensile suspense from the beginning and never lets it go.
50
USA Today
One would be hard-pressed to name another submarine movie that lingers so little in the memory two days after seeing it.
50
Philadelphia Inquirer
It's still a submarine movie, confined by the ship, the sea, and a convention-laden script.
49
Mr. Showbiz
Just keeps grinding along, pushing its way through a barrage of boom-boom and a sea of tight-lipped clichés.
