"okay, okay, so you don't expect a lot from this sort of fare. So be prepared for something a little differant. Dudikoff plays a coward...until the end of course. His co-star, Alexander Keith is excellent! Hard to imagine that they are still making Cynthia Rothrock movies with a woman (yes, a woman named Alexander) as tough AND sexy as Alexander on the scene. She is a much better actress that Ms. Rothrock too. Good action but the submarine interiors look more like a space ship (Anyone whos ever been on a submarine knows that there aren't a whole lot of winding corridors or open spaces) On the whole this one is pretty good but, of course, it is no Das Boot."
Just plain Bad

"I have seen some pretty cheesy movies with bad acting, but Counter Measures has to be in the top five worst films of all time. The story line, which has some great potential, is completely destroyed by the poor acting ability of the cast. Dudikoff can't even salute correctly - and he is supposed to be a SEAL??? Alexander Keith, while very attractive, does a very poor job convincing the viewer that she is a military solder. As for her role, I have heards better screams out 1950's era b-movies.The scenes inside the sub where just as bad. Was that a Russian sub or the Starship Enterprise. I've seen houses with less room than the sub had. The Special FX were attrocious, I've seen more realistic explosions using green plastic army men and firecrackers. All in all just a very bad film and a complete waste of time."
Dang, this movie is baaad!

"Ok, I should have rented this movie from the library first before wasting my money on this stink burger...The sub was too big and there was too much walking space, they ripped off too many scenes from Crimson Tide and Hunt for the Red October which were far better movies then this one. I strongly recomend you buy something else like Crimson Tide or Das Boot if you like submarine movies."

"This is a great movie. A lot better than the frist, Crash Dive. I highly recomend seeing this. I would really like to see Michael Dudikoff in a bigger picture."
