"Crimson Tide" - 1995 (Gene Hackman)

This is a story of a rescue by the Human spirit (demonstrated by
the character played by Denzel Washington) rising against the
tyranny and demonic seeming obsession with destruction of
humankind on earth in what is a nuclear potentially trigger happy
mindset played out by Gene Hackman potentially (similar to what
we saw of George Bush and his cronies in Iraq I've always said). In
fact the two discuss the "malicious" oriented types who simply like
to be a harm to others on whatever pretext or excuse they might
hang hat on as it were.

Mutiny is played out, as power shifts back and forth to a competing
group of servicemen with their adopted leader - as tension mounts
to see whether a nuclear launch of disastrous potential might yet
be avoided aboard this submarine. This movie is similar in quality
in main respects to "The Hunt for red October" and even in some
regards "Das Boot" depicting German Naval Officers soldiers
at sea and shore.

We always need a "Bill Clinton" type in any event to keep this
opposing seeming mindset from getting carried away with its
destructive insanity potentially I say!
