- A Good Action Movie But Could Have Been Better. 8/30/2008 12:00:00 AM by Pratik112
Similar to action movie themes such as the "Die Hard" Movies which starred Bruce Willis and "Under Siege," which starred Steven Segal. The difference is that this it involves a submarine and two men who try to regain the control of it.
A American Nuclear Submarine is high jacked and the Government is threatened by Nuclear Missiles and the demand is that of firstly money and then the resignation of the President. But unknown to the demented captain of the submarine, two original members of the crew begin to ensure that his plans are distracted. The movie stars Jason Gedrick and Chris Warren Jnr and is directed by Terence O'Hara.
As I have said in the summary, this could have been better and more-so, if you liked the "Die Hard" movies and "Under Siege." But never the less, the concept of this is good and is worth watching if you like to watch action movies.
- USA vs. USA ... 2/19/2012 12:00:00 AM by petros78-296-74207
... USA wins... How convenient ;) Once again a mad man threats United States with nuclear threat. There is only one man between the peace and ultimate chaos. What a classic starting positions for a Steven Seagal movie. Wait... This is not Steven Seagal movie. It sounds like Steven Seagal movie and it smells like Steven Seagal movie but it ain't Steven Seagal movie. In this movie Stevens traditional role as lone gunman is acted by Jason Gedrick.
Plot thickens nicely towards the end. But then comes the only thing movie director should be afraid of... premature ejaculation... Afterwards this movie smokes quick cigarette and fells in deep sleep. Wacher can only say it was nice as long as it lasted. Anyways eight stars for the enjoyment as long as it lasted.

Eric Roberts ? Name rings a bell somewhere . Let me think ? Ah yes I remember him now . Brother of Julia Roberts and at one time was seen as very much an up and coming big name in Hollywood but never really made it Instead it was his sister who became the star name . I will say one thing admirable about Eric Roberts and that is he's very possibly starred in more films than any other actor in history . Well starred is a bit misleading and " First name to appear in the cast list " is probably a more accurate description but Roberts prolific output is genuinely phenomenal and somewhat sadly for every widely distributed blockbuster like THE EXPENDABLES there's literally a hundred Robert star vehicles receiving their premiere at a DVD bargain bin or a very obscure cable station late at night
DEPTH CHARGE is typical of a Roberts film . It's action adventure that owes a fair bit to other superior films . Sometimes you see Roberts in a Tarantino wannabe , sometimes in a John Carpenter wannabe , and in this case a JerryBrukhemer / Tony Scott wannabe but without the budget and without the shallow excitement
- Eric Roberts collects another paycheck ...... 8/14/2015 12:00:00 AM by merklekranz
Generic and dull would best describe this soggy underwater nonsense. A deranged Eric Roberts takes over a nuclear sub with disastrous results for the suffering audience. Technically the plot has more holes than a shot at swiss cheese. The character development would fit on the head of a small pin. Everything is formula driven, with invincible heroes and brainless villains. To make matters worse, you have the confined and claustrophobic endless interior shots. The acting, even by Eric Roberts, is on a level you might see in a high school play. Believe it or not, Eric Roberts has done worse. That's what happens when you are simply collecting another paycheck. - MERK
