'Hunter Killer' Depicts 21st Century Naval Warfare
Since the 20th century, submarine movies have reflected the times. World War II gave rise to nerve-wracking thrillers such as the German "Das Boot." Tom Clancy's "The Hunt for Red October" and "Crimson Tide" in the 1990s introduced the perilous nuclear submarines of the Cold War. Now, "Hunter-Killer," is the latest entry from filmmaker Donovan Marsh. It focuses on perils at sea and the delicate balance of power in the Post-Cold War era. VOA's Penelope Poulou spoke with lead actor Gerard Butler.
