I rated this 111 min REGION B/2 DVD as ok, I enjoyed the film although the beginning was a little slow, good acting by Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman but the story line was a little far fetched.
No nonsense combat veteran Captain Frank Ramsey (Hackman) and his newly installed first officer Ron Hunter (Washington) are caught in the middle of a global crisis. On board a nuclear submarine they're heading for Russia where radical nationalists are threatening to start World War 111. But when they receive an unverified message to launch their missiles, Ramsey and Hunter clash over the validity of the orders. With nuclear holocaust close at hand, mutiny erupts on the sub-pitting the entire crew against each other in a showdown that will decide the fate of the world
