The movie was very exciting and interesting; if you enjoyed BirdsEye movie of a few years ago and the deliberation of what to do or not, then you will enjoy this one. “Hunter Killer” was directed Donovan Marsh and written by Jamie Moss & Arne Schmidt. It had a very simple yet compelling storyline. To most of us we kept wondering if that could be something possible in the real world. How would the Russians and the Americans come work together as a team? – That was a big question most of us couldn’t wrap our heads around.
This movie started slowly and then progressed quickly into the action and suspense scenes. The storyline was centred on how it looked like there was an infringement in the Russian Army. One of the men had moved on to support the Chief Commander of the Army, who wanted to over throw the current Russian president and start a war between the Russians and the Americans. He felt by doing that he could become the world ruler and have everything to himself. One lucky thing was that the Americans had picked up some information from their satellite and could suspect what he was up to. The Americans had to find a way of aborting his plan, by kidnapping the Russian president and keeping him alive, to avoid this scheduled fight the assistant
was calling for.
The very interesting and intriguing aspect of this movie was the fact that they created a story where 2 enemies would have to work together. For most of the viewers it was quite strange to have the Americans and the Russians work together, what was more alarming was the fact that the American navy guys had to risk their life to save that of the Russian president – who would have thought of this? We didn’t see that coming; what a nice twist to the story!
I loved how the story ended; the Americans were able to save the Russian Navy captain and their president, with this they were able to abort the war that his second in command wanted to start
between the Russians and the Americans.
My verdict to this movie deserves a 7/10.
I enjoyed the suspense, action, and thrill. They had a very good cast, production and crew; I did also learn a few lessons around how the navy war ships sail around the world under deep waters for months without seeing sunlight and how they operate. If you love submarines and stories around the navy and the army, then you are sure to enjoy this movie.
