Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com The romantic subplot of this WWII melodrama, Tyrone Power's last film before going to war, is weak, but the action sequences (in color) are good. Rated: C+ Jul 12, 2011 Full Review Bob Bloom Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN) typical WWII drama, a rousing propaganda tool. Rated: 3/5 Aug 18, 2006 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Both the romance and the war scenes lacked any sense of reality, though everything was well-crafted.

Angelo C Great actors, with cool war sequences. Love Tyrone Powers and Dana Andrew's! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/09/24 Full Review steve d Nothing you haven't seen 100 times before. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review jeff h Great Sunday arvo movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member This is one of my favorite classics and why is it getting so much hate? This movie is very exciting and leaves you on the edge of your seat! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member 'Crash Dive' is an entertaining war film with a nice cast. This may be one of the earliest war romances of two guys after the same girl. Whether the target is an enemy ship or their common love interest, Tyrone Power's character always goes straight for the kill, and Dana Andrews' character tries to think a couple of moves ahead. Both of them are quite believable and watchable in those roles: Power's charm is obvious, and Andrews has a way of being outwardly undemonstrative but somehow putting across the impression of a lot going on inside... Two gobs and a girl--One expects of a submarine film that the drama will come from claustrophobia, that these two men will come to know that they're both after the same woman, and immediately afterwards they're going to be sealed into a metal box and put under the sea. This isn't really the case: the claustrophobia is never very sustained, there's nothing particularly submariney about the movie... " Loving a woman during any war is standard fare for a soldier"!! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member another WWII pic made during WWII my faves they had a certain urgency to them since they didn't know the outcome of the war. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
