Storyline

Commander Miles Sheffield is a rising star in the US Navy, patronized by Admiral Eugene Justice, to the silent envy of many, including his XO and Chief on his first command mission aboard a nuclear submarine, the Lansing. This maiden voyage also turns out to be the ultimate challenge: a failed Korean nuclear missile causes a disastrous explosion which knocks his means of communications out of order, so he fears to be incommunicado in a nuclear war against an unknown enemy. Now his rivals believe his inexperience and unwillingness to man battle stations amount to desertion in war time, and plan a mutiny: they have the doctor skip him for necessary iodine shots so he'll be too sick to resist when the XO seizes command- his loyal supporters must get it back fast, for even the admiral sees no alternative then have the nearby Mako hunt them down to eliminate them before they start World War III... Written by KGF Vissers

A must see action movie on attack subs
22 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Danger beneath the sea is an excellent movie.

It's similar to the movie Crimson Tide but this time it's an attack boat that has a mutiny and threatens to launch nuclear tipped Tomahawk missiles and start world war 3. It's a must see for anyone interested in subs and it is an excellent action / adventure movie. While in some respects the movie is not 100% technically accurate and the naval jargon is dumbed down a bit the filmography is excellent. Inaccuracies aside the threat of nuclear launch is a lot more believable than in the movie Crimson Tide.

Crimson Tide and the Hunt for Red October are two other excellent movies but they are out of date. This time the theoretical enemy is North Korea. This movie also takes a close look at the decisions a submarine skipper must make in isolation of commanders above him. It's amazing that a two billion dollar piece of machinery that can fire nuclear missiles is commanded by a person under the age of thirty.
