Storyline

A U.S. submarine, the USS Tampa Bay, vanishes while shadowing a Russian Akula-class submarine in the Arctic. Rear Admiral John Fisk sends a Virginia-class submarine, the USS Arkansas, under the command of newly-promoted and unorthodox Commander Joe Glass to investigate. At the same time, a Navy SEAL team under the command of Lieutenant Bill Beaman is sent in to discreetly observe a Russian naval base. When they arrive at the naval base, they witness defense minister Dmitri Durov conducting a coup d'etat and taking Russian President Zakarin prisoner, and swiftly realize that Durov intends to trigger a war..

Trivia

The exterior of the USS Arkansas was built in the famous water reservoir of Pinewood Studios, where the aquatic sequences of many films were filmed. This is where Commander Glass and his men prepare the submarine for their mission in Russian territorial waters. This is also where the Russian zodiac is towed alongside Arkansas and Glass meets his colleague of the Beaman underground operations for the first time. The underwater sequence in which Beaman is trying to save the Russian president was shot in the giant reservoirs of Leavesdon Studios. See more »

Goofs

At 53:39, Glass (Gerard Butler) calls his sub a "ship." As someone who supposedly mustanged his way up through the ranks (he was a bull nuke), he would know that subs are colloquially called boats. See more »

Action packed thriller
25 February 2019 | by ruchirpathak_it21See all my reviews

Watched a 2018 action thriller movie HUNTER KILLER which is a submarine-related movie. A US submarine Tampa Bay gets vanished when it was trailing a Russian submarine in russian waters. USS Arkansas submarine was then sent to find out about it, which is helmed by Joe Glass (Gerard Butler) and they came to know about something else going on there. Movie is tight, with some class scenes, esp the scenes of submarine manoeuvres were superbly handled with just the right amount of thrill. And some of the fight scenes were also good. Though at some point it seems impossible that thia could happen. But all-in-all its a good thrillee movie and nice timepass. I rate 3.5/5
