This movie started out very slow, but then picked up the pace, and started to become more exciting. I nearly fell asleep during the first half hour, but sort of woke up during the last parts of the film, when you got to know the characters a bit better, and their escape from the submarine began.
I thought it was kind of funny that the foreigners couldn't decide on whether to speak in their native language, or to speak English, it just seemed like improvised play and/or poor planning.
I liked most of the actors though, and especially thought that Gary Busey's portrayal of the bizarre captain (he always said something weird in critical moments) was amusing. Seeing him in navy clothes brought back some memories of "Under Siege", where he also appeared in the same kind of outfit, and also acted crazy throughout. Shaun Toub does a good job as the rival Iraqi/Iranian submarine-captain too, albeit a quite typical "bad middle-eastern warmonger" portrayal though.
Overall, I have to give this movie 5/10, because it wasn't completely bad, and some of the settings were kind of cool, but it was just unexciting, dull, and lacked genuine thrills and excitement..
But to be honest, this movie just lacks the presence of Steven Seagal.. Billy Dee Williams giving orders through a walkie-talkie, and a crew of generic Navy Seals led by Billy Warlock doesn't quite cut it.
Loading video, please wait...
