We watched a good movie today, Hunter Killer, which we rented from Redbox. We just can't figure out why we missed it when it was at the movie theater last October.
It appears the critics didn't like it for whatever reason, and it received a "4.7" on Rotten Tomatoes and a "6.6 out of 10" on IMDb, but don't let that stop you if you'd like to watch an action packed movie with a good storyline.
Hunter Killer, starring Gerard Butler as a submarine captain, was a 9 out of 10 for us!
We both thought the storyline and Naval references and language were well done and consistent with our experience.
We do have a history with the U. S. Navy and Naval military personnel since Bill and I spent most of our government careers working on nuclear shipyards and Naval Activities in California and Washington, at times working directly for the Commanding Officer.
That was another lifetime ago, but I bring it up because it gave us a lot of inside "command and technical" submarine knowledge, which we used to judge this movie.
If you take the time to watch Hunter Killer, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. The only thing we missed was the theater popcorn, but at $1.75 for Redbox versus about $12 at the early bird showing at the movie theater, it was probably a much better bargain.
Thanks for dropping by!
