GREYHOUND (2020): The Thing I Liked…

Though brief and relegated strictly to the start, I did find myself moved by the romance at the beginning of Tom Hank’s latest war drama, Greyhound.

Past this almost throwaway moment in the movie, everything else that takes place in director Aaron Schneider’s World War II movie happens at sea. For Greyhound is a story that focuses on US Navy captain Ernest Krausemust as he leads an allied convoy being stalked by Nazi U-boat wolf packs.

As you might imagine, there are plenty of tense moments that will make it hard to look away from the screen. Moments that show us how tough a captain’s job is as he tries to avoid getting his ship and all his men blown up.

The acting is of course, faultless. However, I can’t deny that the visuals of the grey ships on the Atlantic; visuals that lasted for approximately 95 per cent of the movie had me yearning for difference.

Greyhound is one you watch because you love Hanks and you’re curious about just how well-executed the tense moments are.

Other than that, I’m almost one hundred per cent sure you’d enjoy Hank’s other movie set at sea much more. I’m of course speaking of Captain Phillips (2013).

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Greyhound (2020).


Greyhound is a new war drama starring Tom Hanks, Elisabeth Shue and Stephen Graham.

Directed by Aaron Schneider and co-written by Hanks, it’s the story of World War II US Navy skipper Ernest Krausemust who must lead an Allied convoy being stalked by Nazi U-boat wolf packs.

I’m in because it’s Hanks and I want to see how how Commander Ernest Krausemust and hopefully many of his men end up making it out alive.

Also, the last time Hanks played a character at sea in Captain Phillips (2013) I had a great time.

Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Karl Glusman, Maximilian Osinski, Matthew Zuk, Lee Norris, Tom Brittney, Rob Morgan, Grayson Russell, Devin Druid, Dave Davis, Michael Benz and Craig Tate also star.
