Storyline

A U.S. submarine, the USS Tampa Bay, vanishes while shadowing a Russian Akula-class submarine in the Arctic. Rear Admiral John Fisk sends a Virginia-class submarine, the USS Arkansas, under the command of newly-promoted and unorthodox Commander Joe Glass to investigate. At the same time, a Navy SEAL team under the command of Lieutenant Bill Beaman is sent in to discreetly observe a Russian naval base. When they arrive at the naval base, they witness defense minister Dmitri Durov conducting a coup d'etat and taking Russian President Zakarin prisoner, and swiftly realize that Durov intends to trigger a war..

Trivia

Gerard Butler and Director Donovan spent a few days on board the USS Houston for research purposes. The USS Houston was for a period under the command of George Wallace, Cdr. USN Ret., co-author of the novel "Firing Point" with Don Keith, the book which this film is based on. See more »

Goofs

Glass is at times referred to as 'captain' and other times as 'commander'. The insignia on his collar is a silver leaf - that of an O5 commander. The insignia is correct; however, in the US Navy any naval officer who commands a ship, submarine, or other vessel is addressed by naval custom as "Captain" while aboard in command, regardless of their actual rank. They may also be informally referred to as "Skipper." See more »
