YMMV: Crimson Tide
- Awesome Music: Two words: Roll Tide. Used again for the trailers for Independence Day.
- It's Hans Zimmer. Would anyone expect any less?
- Genius Bonus: During one of their conversations, Hunter and Ramsey get into a debate over whether Lipizzaner horses are bred in Portugal or Spain. Horse breeders would realize that both men are actually wrong, as Lipizzaners are bred in modern day Slovenia.
- Moral Event Horizon: Captain Ramsey threatening to kill Petty Officer Hilaire to force Weps to open the safe for the firing trigger.
- Nightmare Fuel: The claustrophobia of being trapped in a sinking sub approaching crush depth and having no idea if the repair crews can save your bacon. Also, a) being the men trapped behind a closed hatch in a flooding compartment or b) being the man who closed it.
