Storyline

A U.S. submarine, the USS Tampa Bay, vanishes while shadowing a Russian Akula-class submarine in the Arctic. Rear Admiral John Fisk sends a Virginia-class submarine, the USS Arkansas, under the command of newly-promoted and unorthodox Commander Joe Glass to investigate. At the same time, a Navy SEAL team under the command of Lieutenant Bill Beaman is sent in to discreetly observe a Russian naval base. When they arrive at the naval base, they witness defense minister Dmitri Durov conducting a coup d'etat and taking Russian President Zakarin prisoner, and swiftly realize that Durov intends to trigger a war..

Why all the haters?
9 September 2019 | by rufus_maSee all my reviews

A very good action movie. I nearly passed it by because of the IMDb rating but so glad I didn't.

Since when did a script that stretches reality make it bad? Anyone seen Avengers...?!

Full of action, excitement, plot twists and yes a bit gung ho but so what.

Don't miss it if you like war/action movies.
