Hunter Killer is long and dull, overstuffed despite having a woefully thin narrative. It should have been entertaining trash ... but instead, it's just a waste of your time.

Far from being earth-shattering but competent enough to be worth a glance on a weekend matinee.

It may closely follow the East-West Underwater Playbook but it's also exciting and fun (until the last quarter when everything falls apart). I was so involved I even used the buttons to tip my cinema seat back as Capt Glass took his submarine underwater.

This is the most boring and generic action movie I've seen in a while. [Full Review in Spanish]

Hunter Killer is a thriller with a great cast that's completely misused and a story that could have been more. [Full Review in Spanish]

An extremely entertaining, cookie-cut action thriller that falls straight in line with Crimson Tide, K-19 and The Hunt for Red October...If you like your Hollywood military porn large and flashy Hunter Killer is a marvelous made-to-order time killer.

in this case, the South African Donovan Marsh, becomes, at least, a curious sample of the habitual interpretation of the American cinema of the national reality around his power. [Full Review in Spanish]

Surprisingly solid, despite basically being The Hunt for Red October on steroids. [Full Review in Spanish]

Hunter Killer fails to bring anything new into a genre that is uninterested in novelty and cares only about mindless explosions. Not even cool special effects can save the movie from sinking.

Hunter may be worth tracking down for undersea adventure fans looking for a little bit of dumb fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Hunter Killer is basically what you think it is-a low-rent Hunt for the Red October that is a straight-up ludicrous hero fantasy.

It all makes no sense whatsoever, but Hunter Killer may possibly make your day if madcap mindless escapism is what you really need.
November 1, 2018
The plot demands some plausibility despite how fictitious it might be, but the script and the realization seem rushed and abandoned from the very beginning. [Full Review in Spanish]

Muscular direction by Donovan Marsh keeps the action tense and clipping along, compensating somewhat for a tendency of minor characters to blur together.

Hunter Killer is much closer to London has Fallen, Non-Stop or Battleship than The Hunt for Red October. [Full review in Spanish]

Once all this starts coming together, Hunter Killer is absorbing, even if Marsh and his screenwriters never pretend to be half as interested in their characters as they are in the submarines.

This is a world in which time and space have no meaning.
October 30, 2018
A fretful submarine saga, appealing primarily to those who enjoy watching imaginary military maneuvers.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

An action movie your uncle would have liked after receiving on VHS from Columbia House.
Full Review | Original Score: C

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
