The movie is really good, but it does not tell the whole story.
7 September 2018 | by sergey-vasilyev2007See all my reviews

The movie is really good, but it does not tell the whole story.

The director explains it by telling that he wanted to show the humanity of the Kursk's crew members from one side, and the bureaucracy of the upper military officials on the other side. And that he wanted to leave the politics out of the movie.

In my opinion, the director missed one important fact from the Kursk's story. As you know, the sailors in Russia are drafted to serve in NAVY. And many of them are not willing to sacrifice their lives for sake of competition between superpowers. This movie misses the fact that sailors in one sinking compartment heavily beaten their officer who closed the door between the compartments, thus preventing them to escape from the doomed compartment. This fact was discovered by investigators after reading the note found on the drown officer. I think, this fact should have been reflected in the movie, too.

The second important fact is that all families of dead sailors received, first time in the history, serious monetary compensation (ten-year salary) and apartment for living in major Russian cities. And almost all of them accepted this compensation, and we cannot blame them for that!
