Hunter Killer (2018)


Critic Consensus: Much like the submarine in its story, Hunter Killer cruises the murky action depths, following a perfunctory course into territory that's been charted many times before.

Critic Reviews for Hunter Killer

All Critics (104) | Top Critics (20)

It's nice to spend a couple of hours in a fictional world where we don't have to worry about the American president doing something ruinously idiotic and evil. It plays like a nostalgic fairy tale.

Splitting the difference between scenes of Navy SEAL rescue attempts, underwater evasive maneuvers and your own countdown clock toward an incipient nap, Hunter Killer feels both generic and underheated.

All the actors are sunk by playing caricatures prone to spitting out leaden, often unintentionally humorous dialogue.

Butler's performance-or lack thereof-keeps Hunter Killer from breaking any ground in the field of war movies.

While 'Hunter Killer" bounces between serious and silly, it never quite finds a suitable place to land.

Oct 26, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The Tom Clancy-Lite plot is disposable and dated... and the action, when it does arrive, is quiet enough to send the most insomnia-plagued of audiences to sleep.
