User Reviews

Accurate portrayal of men under pressure..Literally
25 April 2004 | by philphotoSee all my reviews

I spent 24 years at sea and I liked this film because of the accurate portrayal (of the Russians ) in an emergency situation and the way the situations were assessed and dealt with was pretty genuine.

Like Sailors everywhere ( well most sailors with some sad exceptions ie Flag of convenience Passenger ships where the crew take to the boats first in recent years)

They realise they have to pull together and get things sorted in order to save their Ship ,themselves, and the Eastern US Seaboard

When I was at sea we had a typical British tongue in cheek saying

'If in Danger or in doubt run in circles scream and shout'

Which luckily never happens in reality (I hope..)

No Nationalistic ranting or Stars/Stripes/Hammer and sickle waving -But do we need that anyway?
