K-19 : The Widomaker

K-19 : The Widowmaker, 2002 Film starring  Harrison FordSam SpruellPeter Stebbings and Liam Neeson.  Nice little drama about first Russian Nuclear Sub in the 60’s running in to big trouble only days after launching.

This is a supposedly true story of the K19 and the two captains on board who have differences.  The radiation spreads quickly but the captain will not ask the US for help even though they are close.  Several men must go down to the nuclear engine where there is a leak and try to stop it.

A very good story, played well by the entire cast.  I enjoyed the film and the true story behind it.  It was also nice to see the officers and men get together to toast those who didn’t make it some years later.
