Trivia

The film reunites actors David Duchovny and Lance Henriksen, stars from the TV series The X-Files (1993) and Millennium (1996), which were both created and produced by Chris Carter. Duchovny and Henriksen too met in "Millennium" which was a special cross-over episode between both series. See more »

Goofs

The merchant vessel under which they position the sub is clearly identifiable as an auto carrier in both surface and periscope shots, but the captain identifies it as a tanker. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Demi: My crew has just returned from 76 days at sea. The Americans are massing naval assets in the Pacific. There must be a dozen boats better rested.
Markov: Squadron Command is insisting on the most experienced captain and crew available.
Demi: I'm being retired, remember? You should know that. Your signature is all over the transfer. Even if I wasn't, my boat will be in dry dock for months.
Markov: You won't be sailing your boat. You'll be sailing the B-67.

Thoroughly Enjoyable

Inspired by actual events in 1968

In 1968, a Russian diesel submarine goes out for one last mission and then it will be given to the Chinese. Captain Demi (Ed Harris) believes Bruni (David Duchovny), a KGB operative, has plans to take over the ship and start a nuclear war. Bruni will use Phantom to accomplish his mission. How to stop him?

I may be dating myself, but I couldn't help thinking of Richard Widmark during this movie. This was his kind of movie and Ed Harris does an Oscar Worthy job filling in for our departed (2008) friend. Kudos.

The language was all in English, not English with broken Russian accents. That was a good move as nothing was lost in translation by doing this.

The acting by all was excellent. There was good suspense and tension with the music helping.

This was thoroughly enjoyable and the last scenes were heartfelt and very, very clever. Keep a box of Kleenex handy as you may need it. Did I mention that the last scenes were very clever?

There is a statement at the end that says in 1968 a Russian submarine went missing and all is still classified by both the Russian and American governments. (9/10)

Violence: Yes. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Language: Yes, not much though.
