Die Hard on a submarine
12 November 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

COUNTER MEASURES is a cheap DIE HARD rip-off from prolific B-movie director Fred Olen Ray. That it was filmed on an actual submarine - the USS Nimitz, in the Atlantic - is a highlight of an otherwise lacklustre movie which nonetheless turns out to be quite good for a Fred Olen Ray movie. It's certainly not the worst I've seen from the director and some of the fight scenes are quite enjoyable.

The film sees former American Ninja Michael Dudikoff playing a good guy trapped in a Russian submarine with a bunch of terrorists. There's the usual stock footage here, but for the most part COUNTER MEASURES offers up goofy, non-stop, martial arts action. It's hardly well choreographed, but it passes the time and some of it is quite violent. A bit of a 'meh' film, then, this one; neither the best nor the worst you'll see, and B-movie fans might enjoy it.
