A really interesting watch, even if it's stripped of the traditional creature comforts of the genre.

There are worse ways to spend a small, action-packed piece of the summer than on a less familiar look at World War II provided by Hanks...
July 11, 2020
It's a good, tense tale, and Hanks - who wrote the script himself, and stars as the capable but terrified commander - makes it better by stripping the story down to an almost elemental level...
July 11, 2020
The role brings out another in the Tom Hanks gallery of seemingly unremarkable men rising to meet extraordinary challenges.

Greyhound is an impressively wound film that enthralls with its bombastic and explosive sea warfare.
July 11, 2020
The nifty visuals and the thrilling action carry the film a long way. And Tom Hanks manages to bring it home. [Full review in Spanish]

Schneider orchestrates the exciting battles in an easy-to-follow fashion, during which even the plentiful nautical military jargon of Hanks' script make sense to laymen.
July 11, 2020
It's a lot of pushing buttons and moving frantically about the ship, [but 'Greyhound' remains] visually impressive and plays well from the couch.
July 11, 2020
It's a streamlined but exciting war film with a fantastic performance by Hanks at its center. And if, like Hanks, World War II stories are your thing, this is a must-see.

When a torpedo careens right off the side of the Keeling at one point, the action beat stands out from the shapeless cacophony of screams and explosions that "Greyhound" substitutes in lieu of coherent naval warfare.

And while it does carry plenty of cat-and-mouse action moments and close calls, "Greyhound" is sadly a missed opportunity.
July 10, 2020
Schneider can't figure out how to elevate it beyond [his] minimal intentions, and Greyhound starts to become numbing in its tactics.
July 10, 2020
Just the latest example of a script that finds the sort of thrills in a near-past that were previously found in the near-future, confirming that it is the absence of technology that now scares us the most -- not what it might evolve into.
July 10, 2020
At 91 minutes, "Greyhound" is presented in an understated, non-spectacular, matter-of-fact manner. By foregoing histrionics, Schneider magnifies the heroics and glory of these courageous individuals.
July 10, 2020
Content to be itself, a sturdy genre exercise that's crisply directed, edited to a taut 90 minutes and pleasing to the eye.
July 10, 2020
As he did in Captain Phillips and Sully, Tom Hanks proves yet again he is the cinematic master and commander of his time..a taut WWII action film...
July 10, 2020
Undeniably intense and visceral. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, etc. - also Available)
July 10, 2020
I didn't know any of the characters well enough to care about them and this film wastes actors of the calibre of Graham and Morgan. It still manages to be tense and thrilling at times, well-paced and structured and definitely worth watching.
July 10, 2020
"Dunkirk" or "1917," this is not. But as a window onto an under-acknowledged arena of combat and a starting point for armchair military historians, "Greyhound" is seaworthy enough to make it across.
July 10, 2020
This is a role made for Hanks, a real-life hero cloaked in dignity and compassion.
