Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

In straight-to-video land, the submarine has become a popular setting for action thrillers. That's presumably because as long as the action takes place inside the sub, there's not much needed in the way of sets, while there's plenty of stock footage available for the bigger action scenes. This example is pretty much par for the course, with a special forces outfit on a mission to the Middle East being captured and held captive in an enemy sub. As they attempt to seize control of the craft from the inside, a US sub commanded by Gary Busey begins a dangerous game of cat and mouse. Meanwhile, Billy Dee Williams frets away as the admiral in charge of the operation: unnecessary, really, because the plodding script and direction means the outcome is never in doubt.
