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.

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 may be worth tracking down for undersea adventure fans looking for a little bit of dumb fun.

It all makes no sense whatsoever, but Hunter Killer may possibly make your day if madcap mindless escapism is what you really need.

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

As with so many films that don't know when to wrap it up, there are just too many obstacles and questions left to answer. Still it's fun and the underwater photography's kind of fun too.

It's nice to spend a couple of hours in a fictional world where we don't have to worry about the American president doing something ruinously idiotic and evil. It plays like a nostalgic fairy tale.

A submarine movie for dads... Just simple-headed enough to hit the spot, not quite so ludicrous that it pulls me out of it.

The title fits what Butler serves up on a silver platter... Hunter Killer still isn't a great movie, but it puts the world order back in place for the better part of two hours as it re-establishes the Russian threat to the American Way.

This military thriller starts stiffly, and not everyone seems fully committed, but as the pieces come together, it becomes a passably tense entertainment for fans of huge explosions.

...an unapologetic genre film that treats its material - and the audience - with respect.

Has no pretensions of being anything more than a meat-and-potatoes thriller lovingly made for the mainstream mall-cineplex crowds. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, etc. - also Available)

Hunter Killer is Medium Butler at best, but right now Medium Butler is still delivering some well-done ham, and you could do a lot worse in terms of a silver screen Big Mac.

Lately, an escape from actual reality seems pretty appealing. On that level, Hunter Killer delivers.

It's a crackling and majestic war movie that navigates rough seas with aplomb, making you realize maybe dad is onto something.

The further Hunter Killer goes beneath the surface, the better off it is.

When Gerard Butler sets his jaw in an action movie, it doesn't get un-set, mister.
