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, but their mission is swiftly complicated when Martinelli, the team's new DM recruit, is rendered unconscious during the HALO drop. When they arrive at the naval base, they witness defense minister Dmitri Durov conducting a coup d'eta and taking Russian President Zakarin prisoner, and swiftly realize that Durov intends to trigger a war..

Unintentionally Funny because it's so Horrifically Cliche
17 January 2019 | by jakemccoy-289-559646See all my reviews

Take every testosterone-driven action film from the past thirty years, boil down all of the cliche "hard-ass tough guy" one-liners...all of the computer typed overlays like "TOP SECRET NEPTUNE GLACIER MILITARY FACILITY: KYVEK, RUSSIA" .....mix in all the obligatory military helicopter scenes where they're zooming over the water...... Add a solid dramatic Vagner-esq snare drum & french horn soundtrack....army boots running on various surfaces such as airplane hangers and steel platforms.....cartoonish CGI....

To be perfectly honest, we sat down to watch what we already knew was going to be recycled material. But we were in the mood for an action film anyway. But- we all started goofing on it less that five minutes into it. You just can't help yourself, it's so stupidly predictable. Everything.

I think we lasted 35 minutes before we finally ran out of jokes. I cannot believe this has such a high rating on IMDB. It must be people who didn't already see 1,001 identical movies over the past few decades. After Das Boot was released there really was no more need for these types of films.

I gave it two stars because I didn't watch the whole thing. Otherwise I'd just give it one. I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt.
