Hunter Killer

Critics 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 (106) | Top Critics (25) | Fresh (38) | Rotten (68)

  • More invested in setting up nonsensical action sequences and genre-specific pro-America Oohrah than constructing a story that makes a lick of sense.

  • The film is too solemn to be a fun diversion without prejudice. [Full Review in Spanish]

  • A middling sea thriller giving off big explosions and no controversy despite the Russians and Americans involved in an incident at sea.

    February 14, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • A cheesy, laughably simplistic and oftentimes ludicrous work that now feels like a musty relic from an era that has no great degree of nostalgia attached to it.

    February 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The straightforward, solid storytelling makes this mainstream military submarine thriller one that's worth watching.

    December 22, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • If the new motion picture Hunter Killer were real life, it would merit four stars. Unfortunately, the film isn't a striking example of cinema verite but rather a complete piece of fiction. As such, it's a rampaging mediocrity.

Audience Reviews for Hunter Killer

  • Aug 04, 2019
    A rote B-movie, Hunter Killer is a fairly entertaining yet mediocre action film. When a US submarine is sunk in Russian waters while conducting an exercise an emergency mission is launched to investigate and discovers that a rogue element in the Russian military is attempting to cease power and start a war. Starring Gerard Butler, Gary Oldman, Common, and Linda Cardellini, the film has a solid cast; however, their performances are rather weak. The writing isn't very good either, as the plot is pretty outlandish and the dialog is kind of cheesy. And the CGI, though not bad, really sticks out and doesn't blend well with the live-action scenes. Still, there are some exciting and intense action sequences. Hunter Killer has its moments, but it's too ambitious for its own good.
