Trivia

Reunites David Duchovny with Lance Henriksen, stars from TV series The X-Files (1993) and Millennium (1996), both created and produced by Chris Carter. Duchovny and Henriksen too met in "Millennium", a special crossover episode between both series. See more »

Goofs

The submarine used for filming has been converted to a museum. Stairs inside the submarine used for visitor access are clearly visible. The Soviet "drydock" is also identifiable as the ramp leading up to the side of the ship and not of a style appropriate for a submarine. See more »

Quotes

Demi: My crew has just returned from 76 days at sea. The Americans are massing naval assets in the Pacific. There must be a dozen boats better rested.
Markov: Squadron Command is insisting on the most experienced captain and crew available.
Demi: I'm being retired, remember? You should know that. Your signature is all over the transfer. Even if I wasn't, my boat will be in dry dock for months.

A mix between the Hunt For Red October & Crimson Tide. Exciting and tense and true. I enjoyed this and recommend it. I say B+.
23 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"There are only 2 reasons for a boat to go rogue. One is to defect and the other is to start a war and I don't think we're defecting." This movie is based on actual evens set during the Cold War between the US and the USSR. After returning home and excited about being on leave the A Russian sub captain (Harris) and crew are stunned when they are chosen to go on another mission right away. The mission is classified and the only one on the sub that knows the details is a KGB agent Duchovny). When certain details emerge the crew starts to rethink the orders they are given. I was looking forward to seeing this for really one reason. I am a huge Ed Harris fan. He did not disappoint in this movie. The movie itself is also really good and the best way to describe it is a mix of Hunt For Red Octber and Crimson Tide. The fact that the movie is true makes it even more interesting to watch. It is a little predictable but that does not take away from the enjoyment of the movie at all. If you are a fan of movies like Red October then this movie is for you. I recommend this. Overall, very tense and exciting. I give it a B+.
