Crimson Tide
1995
Controversy boils over when Soviet rebels point nuclear weapons at the United States, and a message for the nuclear-missile sub USS Alabama gets cut off during transmission. Will the Alabama prevent a nuclear holocaust, or start one?

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Despite liking The Hunt for Red October, I somehow missed this other 90s submarine flick, but I'm glad I caught up. It's pretty good, with two great rigid performances at the center, and a hell of a claustrophobic set. I was surprised that, other than a couple of needless punches, the conflict was allowed to be expressed in words and ideas and body language; most movies of this sort turn into brawling fistfights in the end, or shoot-outs. Catching so many "before they were famous" cameos was neat, too.
