Trivia

Captain Britanov filed a suit in 2001, claiming that Warner Bros. did not seek or receive his permission to use his story or his character for a movie. He also claimed that the movie did not portray the events accurately and made him look incompetent. In September 2004, a court ruled in Britanov's favor. Captain Britanov declines to state the amount of the award; descriptions range from "substantial damages" down to tens of thousands of dollars. See more »

Effective
25 August 1999 | by (Köln, Germany) – See all my reviews

Despite of being a TV-Production (and showing this sometimes) "Hostile Waters" is a tense and absorbing film about a drama, that took place in a strange and dangerous period of time, we call the "Cold War"; a military disaster, that is still threatening us today. The important thing about "Hostile Waters" is, that it shows the story from a unusual point of view (the soviet submarine- crew), without high-tech gimmicks and without the "..it must be a historical fact, because I saw it in a John Wayne Film.." nonsense (or: "..because i read it in a Tom Clancy book"). Oh, and good work by Rutger Hauer, who had a break from B-Movie time. Don´t get me wrong, I like many of his B-Movies, but would somebody please give this man some really big-movie-parts to do ?!.
