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

my review for uss poseidon phantom below
8 July 2015 | by liamwuthrichSee all my reviews

well i like the film a lot because of the skill and tenacity of the crew in the heat of battle on board any submarine also i have played similar submarine game's in school and at home it is very hard to hunt hide a kill your enemy and everybody brings something new too the film's like this one compared to others on the market not based on a video game also i like the fact this film had a happy ending the family of the pervous xo got close-her in her brother death as his last request to a friend also i also learned a lot from this type of movie and what theater they were using for the under water footage and that very little cgi was involed and like every film everybody new their line because they had their a game in this film also i am a hudge fan of Adrian Paul and i know he doe's thing's buy the book in this film and that's OK in my book. anyway i think the other actor's and actress's were also great doing their part considering all the film's and TV series they have been in before this film came to light and i would love too see this film considered for netflex apple TV and Xbox video on those platform's and this film is a great fiction of life and death and true courage in the line of duty of a military type film.
