Sure, plenty of bad accents and more than a few submarine movie clichés weight down this true tale from the 1960s. But the story of brotherhood found within a nuclear-armed Russian sub on the brink of disaster keeps itself above sea level. Barely. Harrison Ford's bad haircut and icy stares do little to help this mission. Thankfully, Liam Neeson fairs better as the men's former leader that the Motherland's top brass don't think can handle the job.
That leaves the young cast of sailors who look as lost as they are frightened to carry a majority of the film's weight. Which they do well--especially when things build up to their thermonuclear climax.
