Just a little too formulaic and predictable with flat characters, dull dialogue, and boring camera-work, to receive the 2.5 rating. It's not a terrible time for a background action movie.

Good movie similar to Hunt for Red October
It was a little difficult following at start and some sections later but it all fell into place.
Entertaining and suspenseful

Yes, this is military action movie. If that's not what you're looking for don't watch. If it is you should enjoy.

Watched it for 12 minutes and remembered I really do not like submarine movies. I then hit the reject button and watched something else.

I loved this movie. It was so exciting. Yes it was a bit predictable but it was a feel good movie. Well worth watching.

I give it 5 stars.

***Some spoilers, for reference after viewing the film***

Well, they've just been given a two-day pass, sir. They'll be impossible to find.
-Impossible? Tell me something, XO. How many pubs are there in Faslane?
Two.
-Then let's devise a radical plan. You look in one and I'll look in the other.
===
The Russian president is simply posturing, pounding his chest.
-He's embarrassed us in Syria. He continues to defy us in Crimea. Are we going to let him to dominate us in the Baltic? And what next, Europe?
===
Joe Glass? Where the hell did you find him? What class was he?
-Never went to Annapolis, sir.

I've worked your jobs. Manned a sonar, been the Bull Nuke, I've cleaned torpedo tubes. If you think I know you better than your previous officers, you're right. I've been underwater all my life. I've missed five elections, seven Super Bowls, my sister's wedding, and my father's death. This is all I know down here. I am you.
===
I can do some of your jobs better than you. I won't. Your jobs, but they're my responsibility.
===
Beaman ain't one to hold back on his emotions. And he's got all three: irritation, anger, and rage.
===
I appreciate the gesture, Cob, but I can't take your coin. I don't think I'm gonna be buying anybody a drink on this trip.
===
If I have to say everything twice, we're not going to make it.
===
Ever seen a blast signature like this, XO?
-Until today, I hadn't seen any torpedoed submarines.
You're not seeing one here. Look at the skin of the hull...

They don't deserve a rescue.
-They were following somebody's orders, Reed.
===
Look, nobody's following the playbook. We don't know what's going on up top.
The only people who might have a clue are down there on that ocean floor.
===
Hey, boss, what's your sitrep?
-Got some heavy ordnance down there. They're loading destroyers. Pulling up to a tin can right now.
===
I'm your Minister of Defense, and I intend to defend our interests and our country from any threat, inside or out. Even those from a weak leader.
===
We let them gain a tactical advantage now, no one's ever going to remember
who threw the first punch.
===
Nav, stay as close as you can to the rocks without scraping the paint.
===
Acoustic-detonating mines. How are we supposed to get past those?===

Miss Norquist, this sounds like excellent analysis for a history book, but we won't be the ones writing that book, unless we respond now!
===
Sir, that fjord is mined, it's covered in sensors and sonar fields. No matter how many precautions we take, it won't be enough to get us through undetected.
-You're right, XO. That's why we need a local navigator.
===
I am no traitor.
-No. I'm not saying you are a traitor. The traitor is the man who blew up your sub.
===
We're not enemies, we're brothers. Who else understands what it is we go through? The isolation, the fear. Riding for months inside a bomb scraping at the bottom of the ocean. But it's what we are. It's what we do.
===
All due respect, sir. You just keep leading, let us do the worrying.
===
Captain... This is absurd! The arrogance of this, for you to bring him in here! You will be court-martialed!
-Then it's my job to keep you alive long enough, so you can testify.

XO, what's better, to be right or to be alive?
===
Who are you?
- Search and Rescue. Off the grid. Three ghosts.
===
There aren't too many training simulations for this one.
===
Captain, I'm picking up a faint 300 MHz tonal. Heavy screw beat.
-Is it domestic?
No, sir. Sounds like an auxiliary. It's on the surface.
===
It'll be a minute for the blast circle to die down. If we can't hear her, sir, she can't hear us.
===
We're gonna lie on the bottom like a catfish.
===
You didn't just start a war... you just lost one too,
===
You came back.
- Yeah, I needed the exercise.

Prepare KH35 surface-to-sea missiles.
===
Tomahawks one and two ready for launch.
===
How did you know?
-I didn't. I hoped.
===
Joe Glass.
- Bill Beaman.
So, you're the lunatic saved the Russian President.
-And you're the crazy son of a bitch who weaved this tin can through a mine field.
Got a long debriefing.
- Yeah. One hell of a story we'll never be able to tell our grandchildren.
I would like to take one last breath before we go under. You never know what it's gonna be like when you come up.
- Could've turned ugly. Instead, it's just a beautiful afternoon. What do you say we get out of here.
Ever been on a Hunter-Killer, Beaman?
-That's the last place I want to be. Claustrophobic.
You'll be okay, as long as you don't jump out this time.
