Crimson Tide | 1995 | R | - 1.5.6

Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman star as two officers on a nuclear submarine, at the brink of nuclear holocaust.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A couple of obscene sexual references; a couple of barechested men; a kiss between a man and his wife.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A fire in the galley results in explosions and people being bandied about. A man has a cut over his eye which is dripping a great deal of blood. A man is punched in the face resulting in a slightly bloody nose and a small cut on his cheek. A man is hit in the face by a hatch. A dead body is shown floating in the bilge. A man dies of a heart attack. A submarine sustains a hit, which causes the sub to shake violently -- this happens twice -- and people are injured but not severely. Two men are held at gunpoint.

LANGUAGE 6 - About 25 F-words, 15 scatological terms, many milder obscenities, a couple of sexual references.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Military orders vs. morality, authority, nuclear holocaust.

MESSAGE - While a soldier must follow orders, sometimes he has to follow his own moral compass and be ready to face the consequences.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
