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.
It's ok film and good in many ways. but always goes back to it's origins.
Liked the portrayal of a brutal way the U.S. and its West was won. So often it's glossed over that early and later settlers were generally religious dissenters, political malcontent and criminal transportation. Not forgetting ordinary dreamers, as all above had their own dream scenario, not all of it for the good.
Then it follows the path of our hero is Irish Catholic, forced to convert to Anglican or Puritan faith to be accepted. Is it just Irish Catholic idea of what's in a church or a total faux pas. The crucifix in Anglican or Puritan churches of that time would amount to the sin of idolatry.Then there's the constant taunt, " Irish you can't do it, all I see is fear in your eyes". That's very strange to say the least, but overall it''s worth a watch.
