Crimson Tide starring Denzel Washington, Gene Hackman and directed by Tony Scott (younger brother to Ridley Scott) is an action packed submarine drama. In a now non-Soviet Russia, a military extremist is holding both the US and Russia hostage as he takes control of a nuclear missile installation; the threat is total nuclear war. At the same time a patrolling nuclear navy sub, the USS Alabama, helmed by Captain Ramsey (Hackman) has been instructed to be at the ready to launch a preemptive strike against the terrorist. His new XO (executive officer) is Lt. Comm. Hunter (Washington), an extensively educated military tactician but with no practical combat experience, is conflicted about his new Captain's approach and attitude during their orders and tensions mount.

With their radio damaged and no new instructions coming through and the last order set for them to launch their attack and no knowledge of the rest of the fleet's fate, the Captain becomes increasingly trigger happy with Hunter urging caution. With attacks from enemy subs, personal differences, mutinies and counter mutinies the tension never breaks in this thrilling drama.
