The film follows the 2000 K-141 Kursk submarine disaster and the governmental negligence that followed. As the sailors fight for survival, their families desperately battle political obstacles and impossible odds to save them.
John Cusack and Emile Hirsch make this film worth watching. Hirsch is an Irish carpenter and undertaker whose business has taken a severe hit due to a fire and brimstone minister's campaign to clean up an old west town's tavern and brothel. Along comes Cusack's sinful character who brings both ladies of the night and booze to liven up things a bit. Dead bodies turn up at an alarming rate and the undertaker makes a killing. Of course it is a Faustian bargain with unforeseen consequences. An excellent script and fine Irish countryside as background make this a top notch movie. A solid 8/10.
