List Rules Add, rank, and rate sub movies from any era!

This is a list about the best submarine movies. Who doesn't love a good submarine film? Be honest. You know that whenever you see a trailer for a new submarine movie or hear about a great submarine movie you've never seen before that you get super excited and you feel like your head is about to implode... from the pressure. That's a submarine joke. Water. ...Depth.

From some of the top submarine movies like The Hunt For Red October, and Crimson Tide, to all-time great submarine movies like Das Boot, this list has everything you'll need to satisfy your insatiable need for input on the most famous submarine movies.

The amount of times the word "submarine" appears in this list description is not an accident. Submarines are awesome (they go underwater, and there are people in them, and they are basically magic, and they shoot rockets and win wars!) and they deserve to be talked about more.

Thankfully, Hollywood agrees. Please enjoy this list of the best submarine movies of all time.
