THIS IS AN EDITED VERSION OF THE ORIGINAL

"Be warned ! This is the edited version of the movie that originally appeared on "here-tv"(the gay television station). This version does not contain at least two scenes where Adrian Paul and Mike Doyle are kissing (they are lovers). The movie was originally titled, "Tides of War." Another scene edited out is when Catherine Dent's character tells Adrian Paul's character that she has found the letters that he sent to Mike Doyle's character.
I rate this version of the movie 1 star for editing those scenes. The original version shown on here tv was a 5 star."
Adrian Paul Delivers

"I bought the movie beacuse Adrian Paul was in it. Adrian Paul fans will love it. He looked very good in the uniform and he played the role of the Captain very well. I read the other reviews for USS Poseidon-Phantom Below, and I did not know that there was supposed to be any gay element in the movie. That the commander had just lost his best friend in a tragic accident that he felt responsibility for as the captain was the only message that I got. It seems that the movie was edited from the origional,Tides of War. At any rate, the story could have focused more on the phantom submarine that hunted them but overall it was an enjoyable movie and well worth what I paid for it used."
Not a Don't Ask Don't Tell Movie
Rainbow Guy | North Bend, OR | 03/18/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Commander of a submarine, whose lover happens to be his XO are tracking a new type of submarine in the waters off of North Korea. One touching scene between the Commander and XO/lover. Adrian Paul does a good job as usual. Realistic setting. Gay was not an issue is this, don't ask/don't tell didn't come up."
Needed a little tweaking

"In all fairness, I watched the movie twice and realized it was the stiff, flat dialogue that drug the movie down. There were some good action scenes, and I liked the basic plot, so it's a shame there weren't a few more revisions to the script dealing with the characters. I think this could've been a fantastic action movie with just a little tweaking. The conversations made the actors sound 'stock'. This is a good example of why fantastic editors are worth their weight in gold.
