The story of King George VI of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, his impromptu ascension to the throne and the speech therapist who helped the unsure monarch become worthy of it.

The story of USSR's first nuclear ballistic submarine, which suffered a malfunction in its nuclear reactor on its maiden voyage in the North Atlantic in 1961. The submarine's crew, led by the unyielding Captain Alexi Vostrikov, races against time to prevent a Chernobyl-like nuclear disaster which threatens not only the lives of his crew, but has the potential to ignite a world war between the super powers.

Both the rescue sub and the American destroyer were former Canadian warships. The American destroyer was actually an 'Improved Restigouche' Class Canadian destroyer escort which was decommissioned in the mid-'90s. This class did not have a flight deck for a helicopter. Both ships used were stationed in Halifax, Nova Scotia, home of the Canadian Atlantic fleet. Halifax was used in shots of the K-19 departing for sea. In the background of that shot, Canadian warships can be seen. See more »
At the beginning of the movie, when the radio officer checks for Moscow's confirmation during the drill, the close-up shot of the radio panel shows the green light active and two white lights active. A second later the radio panel is shown again (which should look exactly the same as no actions were taken), this time the two white lights are inactive, and a third light is active. See more »
I rented this DVD for a little diversion, in spite of the bad buzz and the word "flop" attached. I thought it was a very good movie, very suspenseful and interesting. I don't nitpick about things like accents with films, just try to enjoy them. I agree with the majority of posters here, it is well worth your time.
