Storyline

In the cold, dark waters off North Korea a U.S. Navy fast attack submarine meets with a mysterious disaster - it's attacked and nearly sunk by an ominous stealth submarine resulting in the deaths of the Executive Officer and the Engineering Officer. The sub's captain, Commander Burt Habley, faces a court-martial by a Naval Board of Inquiry. He's rescued from this fate when he's chosen to lead a top secret mission back to tap a North Korean underwater communications cable. Habley must protect his boat and crew from this phantom submarine while completing a successful mission. His instincts tell him they're being followed and he begins to navigate the sub away from the original mission and into open waters drawing the phantom sub away from the U.S. fleet. This puts him at odds with his new by-the-book Executive Officer who eventually, with the help of the special missions team, takes command of the submarine and navigates back on course just as they are attacked again. Validated, Habley... Written by Anonymous

USS Poseidon
22 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being a published writer and one book dealing with a long submarine chase, Adrian Paul portrayed a true submarine commander and 'Dizzy Malone' was a true Chief of the Boat. I have watched the movie numerous times on DVD and love the suspense of the phantom submarine. I wish the chase would have covered more territory; but also understand the realm the phantom operated in between North Korea and China and the scenario the writers placed the boats in. The Yellow Sea really is shallow for submarine operations.

If my book, HUNTED, was made into a movie, Adrian Paul would make a great CDR D.J. 'Deke' Slater. He has the talent to portray various characters and is versatile in various surroundings. He takes his acting very seriously. I hope to see him in more movies.
