|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about K-19 (2002)|
|This is based on a true events of a Russian submarine. During the cold war, the only way the soviets cold ensure that the Americans did not fire nuclear missiles was to make the US know that it would face immediate retaliation. This was done by placing a nuclear sub near the United States. One of the subs was K-19. The crew called it the widowmaker because many died before the boat ever launched. On its maiden voyage, the K-19 had problems with its nuclear missiles and it is up to the crew to stop the missiles from exploding.
--Dashaun Montanez, Resident Scholar
|This is a very, very slow movie that says very little--about a sub accident that kills some Ruskies. And yet the film is over two hours long, so they fill it with constant drills on the sub. Very gory scenes of dying crewmen.
--Steve, Resident Scholar
