Notes About the Violence

Crimson Tide is an exciting movie starring Denzel Washington, that we believe is worth skipping ten scenes for.

Not Included in Scenes

At one point we see an enemy submarine explode underwater from afar, but it is not graphic at all, and actually a pretty cool special effect.

General Warning

Characters are in general underwater peril throughout the movie.
