The story of USSR's first nuclear ballistic submarine, which suffered a malfunction in its nuclear reactor on its maiden voyage in the North Atlantic in 1961. The submarine's crew, led by the unyielding Captain Alexi Vostrikov, races against time to prevent a Chernobyl-like nuclear disaster which threatens not only the lives of his crew, but has the potential to ignite a world war between the super powers.Written by
The rescue of K-19 was performed by the S-270 submarine under the command of Capt. 3rd rank Zhan Sebrilov. See more »
The submarine, on its way to fire the test missile, is shown speeding through the water with bubbles coming from the propellers. This is called cavitation and creates LOTS of noise. A stealthy submarine, on its way to a launch, would never cavitate, except in an emergency. See more »
K-19 is perfect truly movie about Russian submarines. I can't find any mistakes in plot - all things is correct! May be it's funny, but K-19 is best patriotic movie for Russians which was made by Americans! Thank you, Harrison Ford and all, who made this movie! 9/10 (sorry for my English...)
