Goofs

27 minutes into the film (the explosions already have happened), while the survivors scramble for solutions, Mikhail (the main character) shouts orders to another compartment, using what is supposed to be an intercom, a red box mounted to the sub's bulkhead. The box is in fact an American World-War 2 military VHF receiver, model BC-603. It was used by the American Signal Corps. The original color is army-green, but the props department painted it red.

What a waste of human life just because of their governments pride

REVIEW - KURSK

Release Date 21 June 19

TRUE STORY

The sinking of the Nuclear Oscar class submarine KURSK took place on 12 August 2000, killing all 118 personnel on board.

Nearby ships registered the initial explosion and a second, much larger, explosion which registered 4.2 on the Richter scale on seismographs as far away as Alaska, yet the Russian Navy did not realise that the sub had sunk and did not initiate a search for more than six hours.

By the time it declared an emergency 11 hours later, the crew (were-unknown to anyone) all dead.

This is the film of the events leading up to the disaster, the crews attempts to survive on the bottom of the ocean, the governments denials that an accident had even occurred and the families attempts to find out what had happened to their husbands, fathers, sons and or lovers.

Regrets of arguments had before the submarine leaving, a wedding and a new bride coming to terms with..... Explaining to sons and daughters their fathers aren't coming home and all the way through the government denying.

During this time the story will take you on a roller coaster of ups and downs, good news followed by bad news, how other countries offered to help including the British but none being accepted which resulted in the innocent deaths of all 118 sailors.

My biggest problem with this film is simply this, it's set in Russia on a Russian submarine with Russian sailors trying to survive and their Russian families on land trying to find out from the Russian government what has happened and what will happen to rescue them but it's in English! WHY?

As this is a true story why not use Russian actors? the trueness (If there is such a word) gets lost because for me they used English speaking actors.

If you watch this film I'd seriously advise you get rid of any kind of distraction because the fear of the sailors and their families deserve your full attention.

RIP all 118.

What a waste of human life just because of their governments pride.

Rating 8 out of 10
