Because of the contained environment, submarines make great settings for thrillers, with the throbbing of the engines sounding like a pulse. Crimson Tide is no exception -- the atmosphere alone is sufficient to keep the audience on edge.

This is the rare kind of war movie that not only thrills people while they're watching it, but invites them to leave the theater actually discussing the issues.

What really makes the film a class act, however, is that there are complex characters dealing with complicated issues and it never cops out to simplicity.

For a movie that's all about a bunch of men locked in small metal rooms, Crimson Tide is mighty engaging.

It's too slick to be truly disturbing, but it's that slickness that keeps you on the edge of your chair.
