Greyhound (2020)



Critic Consensus: Greyhound's characters aren't as robust as its action sequences, but this fast-paced World War II thriller benefits from its efficiently economical approach.

Critic Reviews for Greyhound

All Critics (229) | Top Critics (44)

With little character development on paper, the narrative finds victory through Hanks' patient physical performance and the craftsmanship within the battles.

If this is all Tom Hanks imagines a Tom Hanks vehicle to be, he greatly underestimates himself.

November 22, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

You'd think a more experienced director would have found the undiscovered visual opportunities in this...all this stuff was missing beyond the top level of the film...a procedural thriller that left me hungry...

Greyhound is the lead ship and Krause is the overall commander.

July 27, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Yes, it is taught, brisk, and focused, but I didn't learn enough about the characters... I would have felt more emotionally invested.

Hanks' script is an example of economical storytelling and the end result is a thrilling 75 minutes of the kinds of things one expects from well-made submarine movies.
