Product Description

Superstars Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman face off in the intense action-thriller Crimson Tide, now on Blu-ray Disc®. Viggo Mortensen and James Gandolfini also star as the full-throttle tension (Los Angeles Times) builds relentlessly in this pulse-pounding format! Amidst a global crisis, the USS Alabama is ordered to launch its nuclear missiles signaling the start of World War III! And when the sub s commander and his executive officer clash over the validity of their orders, an epic struggle for control erupts under the sea. Watch every explosive frame in spectacular 1080p, while 5.1 48 kHz, 16-bit uncompressed audio blows you away. See, hear and feel the Tide rage through the power of Blu-rayTM High Definition!


You can almost hear the studio pitch meeting echoing throughout Crimson Tide like the sonar on the soundtrack: "It's The Cain Mutiny on a nuclear submarine!" When radio communications problems aboard the USS Alabama prevent the sub from receiving its orders clearly during a tense confrontation with Russian warships, Navy officer Denzel Washington faces a huge ethical dilemma: countermand the orders of legendary Captain Ramsey (Gene Hackman) to fire nuclear missiles, or follow his command and risk launching an unprovoked nuclear war. It's really an actors' picture, and the fun is in the fireworks between Washington and Hackman, each of whose characters articulates solid reasoning behind his decision. There are no easy villains, and there's no easy way to tell right from wrong--that's what makes the nuclear stakes so terrifying. Director Tony Scott (who directed Quentin Tarantino's True Romance script) called in Tarantino to punch up the dialogue, which is why, for example, the sailors talk about Silver Surfer comic books. The digital video disc is in anamorphic widescreen; the sonorous underwater rumblings on the Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack will provide you with a good opportunity to show off your system's bass response. --Jim Emerson
