Could have been better.....the sets!
30 August 2002 | by (Central Valley, CA) – See all my reviews

The sets were atrocious. The inside of the sub looked like the inside of a giant metal tube decorated with anything they could lay their hands on. Supposed to be a nuclear sub? Look at "Search for Red October"; "Grey Lady Down" and other 'modern' movies for ideas about sets for nuclear subs. Other than that I rather liked the movie.
