A Good Action Movie But Could Have Been Better.
30 August 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Similar to action movie themes such as the "Die Hard" Movies which starred Bruce Willis and "Under Siege," which starred Steven Segal. The difference is that this it involves a submarine and two men who try to regain the control of it.

A American Nuclear Submarine is high jacked and the Government is threatened by Nuclear Missiles and the demand is that of firstly money and then the resignation of the President. But unknown to the demented captain of the submarine, two original members of the crew begin to ensure that his plans are distracted. The movie stars Jason Gedrick and Chris Warren Jnr and is directed by Terence O'Hara.

As I have said in the summary, this could have been better and more-so, if you liked the "Die Hard" movies and "Under Siege." But never the less, the concept of this is good and is worth watching if you like to watch action movies.
