Just got back from viewing K19 and overall I think it was a good flick. Based on actually events, the movie is strictly from a Russian point of view of the events of the Russian nuclear sub K19 after it departure from dry dock. No other nationality is even heard from during the course of the film except for a US destroyer and helicopter. Even though the movie is suppose to be the story of the sailors of the sub there is a western twist to it. An underlining theme to the movie is the western conception, wether accurate or not, that the Soviet government had little concern for the safety of its sailors.
As far as acting I feel Harrison Ford did his best job to portray a navy captain sworn to the State and but unfortunatly I didnt buy it. His accent wasnt very convincing and he didnt envoke a very large presence on the screen such as Sean Connery in "Red October" Liam Neeson on the other did a great job of portraying an officer that puts his men safety above the buracuracy of government. He does a wonderful job of showing the tension between him and Ford but I don't feel Ford did a very good job of expressing the same tension. The other members of the cast were great also although I didnt recognize any of them.
So overall it was a good movie but nothing thats going to win Academy Awards but still worth seeing.
