Not good, not bad
It may sound indifferent but I have to admit I got precisely what I expected from this movie; and what I expected was enough reason for me to want to watch it but not to get excited. I got my 1½ hours worth of your everyday evening entertainment and I am content.

I would however pick a lot of other movies - including other submarine themed - over this one. The movie didn't fail per say, but it didn't really succeed either. It held me just enough to make me want to keep watching but not enough to keep me invested. The current rating of 5.7 is a decent estimate of this film. Barely above average I would give it a 6.

One thing that I deem a golden product of a great movie is the afterthought it inspires in you, reflecting, maybe even fantasizing/daydreaming. This movie didn't spark anything. Doesn't make it a bad movie but neither does it make it a good one. Maybe if I hadn't watched any other submarine movie beforehand, but I digress.

The characters I can't say I really bothered that much about. Maybe it is me, or maybe the movie didn't do a good enough job to convince me to be interested in them. If you told me to speak up the names of the crew in the movie I would have to leave you at a loss for words - and that I think tells you something. I like Edd Harris and William Fichtner but they didn't give me any good reason to like their characters.

The climax was interesting but sadly it made me just want to watch something better executed like Crimson tide or The hunt for Red October instead, and that was distracting.

It's a pass, but don't plan a Saturday night for it. That it is not worth. My movie night was a toss between watching this for the first time or Sunshine for the second time. I'm fine with the result.
