Hunter Killer may seem another mission Hollywood movie, but the storyline has much unique and attractive to deliver. Its a story about Kidnapping of the Russian President by his own defense minster, and how American Navy and other security forces rescue him to stop a possible WWIII.
The Lead cast has Gerard Butler as the savior, Butler gets fit into roles that dominate others in movies’ scripts.
Gerard Butler as Joe Glass
Gerard Butler plays the character of commanding officer of USS Omaha Joe Glass; it is the main-heroic character of the film. He is the one who lead the Navy team to rescue the Russian President. In the movie, the character is serious and disciplined who has to evaluate his decisions really well, as a penny mistake can lead to global stress.
Gary Oldman as Charles Donnegan
Gary is one major highlight of the film, there is always a need of a superintendent in a mission like this; he is Admiral Charles Donnegan, the boss of all. He is the busiest and most responsible person in the film; you can expect a lot of stress, work and making him different strategies.
Common as John Fisk
There is one John Fisk in most Hollywood mission movies, I am taking about the black guy who is funny and has a ton of guts. Common also plays a character of an officer of U.S security forces, he brings realistic atmosphere in the movie; however he doesn’t look funny at all. Enjoy him coping with Gerard Butler in the rescue mission.
Linda Cardellini as Jayne Norquist
Any Hollywood team can’t be competed without a female officer or warrior; Linda Cardellini also plays the role of an officer to assists the mission. Nothing much to talk about on her, just know that the cast would have looked a bit incompleted without her.
Alexander Diachenko as Zakarin
Alexander Diachenko’s character is the one who triggers to the Call to Action in the movie; he plays Russian President Zakarin who is kidnapped by his own minister. You may not witness him doing much except him hoping for some help, but the character has the biggest influence to the story of Hunter Killer.
