Submarines is dead on arrival

After 9/11, Nu-Image apparently decided to do their part and make some patriotic movies based on each branch of the military under the banner of the American Heroes Series - Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. At least we think that was the idea. Unfortunately, these films, while extremely well-intentioned, are without character development and thus you cannot care about what goes on. The exception that proves the rule is Special Forces, which is actually good. The movies are Submarines, Marines, Air Strike and Special Forces. In this mindless undersea outing, Robert Miano plays basically the same character he does in Ministry of Vengeance (1989) - a cloak-wearing Islamic terrorist named Sajid Kahn. He loves filming his murder and mayhem on a little video camera and seems to be obsessed with CNN. He mentions it often and even namechecks Wolf Blitzer. Terrorists being fans of The Situation Room explains a lot, actually. So naturally this baddie hijacks a submarine and makes life a living hell for the crew of a fellow sub populated by the good guys. But our heroes have enough problems as it is, as the Captain crashed into a Russian sub and his crewmates have nicknamed him "Captain Crunch". Besides dealing a crushing blow to his ego, it has severely impeded his ability to fight The Soggies. Thus follows a lot of chasing, shooting, water filling the sub and other pitfalls that can befall a submarine. That includes a lot of CGI water and torpedoes. Yes, I said CGI WATER. Also not only is the dialogue complete gobbledygook (and from what some sources say, completely inaccurate), but it is also garbled and hard to hear. Perhaps they were ashamed and they turned the volume down. This is another straight to video product where the cast all closely resemble other stars. The lead guy (sorry we haven't mentioned his name, but names are either never said or impossible to hear), SHOULD have been played by Treat Williams. The presence of Treat would have added a lot. But in actuality this is nothing more than a standard, dumb sea slog that makes Counter Measures (1999) look like a masterpiece. Heck, it makes the little seen William Shatner vehicle Falcon Down (2000) look like a work of art. Submarines has no human interest, no personality and no reason to watch. You're constantly shouting at the screen "who are these people?" - referring both to the actors and the characters they are playing. At least Counter Measures has the presence of Dudikoff. Submarines has nothing to recommend it, really.

"We've just lost the front end!"

A terrorist hijacks a Russian submarine and sails to America intending to launch a strike on San Diego. A damaged American submarine picks up the trail of the other sub and goes in pursuit. Will it stop it? Will the disgraced captain redeem himself? Will the Marine revenge his dead comrades? Will the XO see his son? A standard sub movie with some good moments but overall not exciting enough. In a bland cast Robert Miano stands out as the villainous Sajid Kahn. Petya Evtimova was Second Second Assistant Director and did a good job.

Tanks are not all that blow on this boat

Calling this movie crap would be doing a disservice to crappy films. This is horrendous. From the very beginning you just know it has no direction and no soul. This is right out of the Chuck Norris school of unbearable, right wing, good v evil machismo movies. This makes Delta Force look like Saving Private Ryan. Illogical and poorly constructed plot, type cast pretty boys with no acting skills (but fit the costume), a hot,tough, woman who shouldn't even be on a submarine (with an even worse bad girl counterpart), bad accents, and models of submarines that looked like a 13 year old built them. This piece of (rhymes with hit) screams direct to video low budget where silk stalkings production value meets ridiculous and inaccurate military "thriller". Boring, dumb, formulaic, nonsensical, idiocy. Oh and great title, Submarines, really well thought out. No amount of weed or alcohol could make this trash watchable. Periscope up, thumbs down.
