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...

Great Submarine Film
17 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

Have always been a big fan of Gerald McRaney,(Admiral Eugene Justice) who gave an outstanding supporting role in this Naval story about a struggle between Commander Miles Sheffield, (Casper Van Dien) who became the skipper of the Lansing Sub over Lt. Commander Albert Kenner,(Stewart Bick). However, when North Korea sets off a nuclear bomb and completely upsets all the crew on the Lansing and causes many mental problems among the entire crew on board. This is something like the "Caine Mutiny" except the Lansing can possibly destroy many innocent nations of the world. There is plenty of great acting and there is only one female Lt. in this film who assists Admiral Eugene Justice and in many ways solved many major decisions in finding out just where the Lansing Submarine can be found. This is a very entertaining film with plenty of suspense and important decisions to make in a matter of a few seconds. Enjoy.
