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.
Baker Dill (Matthew McConaughey) is a fishing boat captain leading tours off a tranquil, tropical enclave called Plymouth Island. His quiet life is shattered, however, when his ex-wife Karen (Anne Hathaway) tracks him down with a desperate plea for help. She begs Dill to save her - and their young son - from her new, violent husband (Jason Clarke) by taking him out to sea on a fishing excursion, only to throw him to the sharks and leave him for dead. Karen's appearance thrusts Dill back into a life he'd tried to forget, and as he struggles between right and wrong, his world is plunged into a new reality that may not be all that it seems.
This latest picture "Serenity" does have some star power yet the plot and story just doesn't pan out as it's twist and revealing discovery is weak and a little non interesting it's like you could see this coming all along in the film. Matthew McConaughey is Baker who's an island fishing boat captain and a guy with a haunted past which involves his bleached blonde ex wife Karen(Anne Hathaway) and the past is slow to figure out only it involves their son and new husband. The film turns into a game that's silly not clever as really it ends up letting you down, still you find a little bit of steam and spice with Diane Lane(still very sexy!) as Constance who plays Baker's part time intimate one night stand lover as the smoke between the sheets is hot this happens to be really a better subplot of the film. Overall though this film is a waste of time as star power couldn't save it.
