Favorite Submarine Movie

I'm suprised there isn't a thread on this subject yet. What's your favorite "submarine" film?


EDIT: The voting booth is up!

Crimson Tide followed by The Hunt for Red October.

Still need to see Das Boot.

'Das Boot'. Epic and awesome. At least to me.

However, my inner Tagia Child will always have a love for '200,000 Leagues Under The Sea'.

The Abyss. That movie is simply remarkable. And the drowning scene is one of the most intense movie scenes ever!

Another great one that is not listed is Below. I love that movie as well as Crimson Tide and Hunt for Red October.

I'm aware of it, though I haven't seen it. Due to there being a limit of 12 options in a poll, I wasn't able to include "Below," and a few others. I tried to list the most well known submarine films and the most widely revered.

This is cool. I was actually going to make a similar topic days ago. But couldn't think of enough submarine movies.

My favs are Abyss, Das Boot, Below and U571. And I haven't seen a fair few on that list...yet.

Das Boot easily sinks the competition for me, but The Hunt For Red October is a respectably close runner-up.

I love The Abyss, but I'm not so sure I'd really call it a submarine film per se. At least purely, anyway. Das Boot is easily the best.

I feel stupid in that U-571 is the only one i've seen. Has anyone seen the uncut edition of das boot? At 5 hours long I don't think I could sit through all of that.

Voted for Hunt For Red October. The Abyss, Crimson Tide, and Das Boot are all favs of mine as well. U57-1 is also really good.

Holy shit! I never knew there were three cuts. I used to own the directors cut. That's almost 4 hours. But I've never seen the uncut cut..lol Now I wanna.

149 min | 209 min (director's cut) | 293 min (uncut version)

The Abyss was a submarine movie?

I went with U-571. I almost went with Hunt for Red October, which is a great movie in its own right, but I thought U-571 was a more suspenseful and exciting movie.

Isn't it? I mean, yeah, it's not set in a war and it features a touch of sci-fi, but it's still part of the submarine sub-genre.

I just googled "Submarine Films" just to make sure and it came up under the results.

U-571. I'm surprised anyone else voted for it.

I don't consider The Abyss to be a submarine movie. Only a small portion of the film takes place on a sub. You might as well say Terminator Salvation is a submarine movie.

I would have left off The Abyss and put Below in its place.

In the end, I voted for U-571.

Das Boot is a really good movie, but very episodic and uneven. I think its roots as a mini-series are obvious. That doesn't mean it's bad. I just don't think it's the hands down "best thing ever."

Also really enjoyed Crimson Tide and The Hunt for Red October.

K19 was a snooze fest.

Just watched Crimson Tide and was blown away. I'd probably call it Tony Scott's best film (that I've seen)

Some good ones there. I went with Das Boot, for its realism and sense of adventure. It just has the edge over The Hunt for the Red October, and 20,000 Leagues (presumably the Kirk Douglas one).

Yeah, thinking about it the movie is about recovering nukes from a submarine that crashed at the beginning of the movie.

U-571 was on this morning; damn that's a good movie.

The Hunt for the Red October

One of John McTiernan's finest directorial achievements (next to Die Hard, Predator and Die Hard: With A Vengeance)

None of the above. The funny, twisted, and just plain weird animated adaptation of the Beatles album, Yellow Submarine, gets my vote.

Well I do love The Hunt for Red October, but my favorite goes to Operation Petticoat. Directed by Blake Edwards, staring Cary Grant and Tony Curtis.

Sorry, probably a lame choice but I love that movie!

I dunno, for me I just feel that rewatchability should only be a portion on how you approve a film.

Das Boot

After that, I would vote for The Bedford Incident, The Enemy Below, Crimson Tide, and Run Silent, Run Deep. Operation Petticoat is a really fun movie also.
