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.

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.

The worse thing about this movie is why can't the people in Hollywood get the US Navy rating structure correct. The CO of the boat had both Silver Oak leafs (which stands for Commander) on his uniform and Shoulder boards with two 1/2" gold stripes and one 1/4" gold stripe (which stands for LCDR). The COB had LT bars on for an officer but he is the Commands Master Chief Petty Officer. There were many other discrepancies like this in the movie. The acting was decent. Overall it was an okay movie.
