Ebert's review about says it all

Not since "Contagion" has there been a movie with such a great cast that was this bad. Everybody in the movie is supposed to be Russian, but not only are they all speaking in English, they don't even have Russian accents. And it's supposedly "based on actual events", but they admit to you at the end of the film that they have no idea how much of it is actually true. Don't bother seeing this one. Stay home and rent U-571 instead.

If you are llooking for action and thrills - this is not the film. It was slow, poorly acted, and I found my self falling asleep a few times during it. It would be ok for cable or DVD but not the $10.75 price I paid for the icket

This movie is about soviet navy guys, played by american actors who speak english. There is not even a Russian symbol on their uniforms. It is poorly written, horribly directed and, with the exception of Ed Harris and a couple of others, badly acted. David Duchoveny is horrible. This is a terrible movie and I almost fell asleep. There's a little bit of action at the end, but that's it.

Bosoxfan: I enjoyed the movie and thought it was excellent. Read the book, "Red Star Rogue" and met the director, Todd Robinson at last night's screening. Very enlightening speaking with him and had an even better appreciation for the movie. I still think that "Crimson Tide" is the bar level for submarine movies.

It Was So-So

Not one of Ed Harris's better movies but its not from him. An O.K. plot combined with so-so acting and maybe two or three shots of the submarines firing torpedos wrapped up in an hour and a half made me feel like staying at the theagtre and seeing another because I didn't get my fill. Also, I expected more from the previews so it was kind of a let down but if you like Ed Harris and submarines I'd go see it.
