K-19: The Widowmaker

You’ll be forgiven if you occasionally can’t tell K-19: The Widowmaker from other entries in the sub-movie genre. The bottom line is that it is, like, really dangerous sailing below the waves, locked inside a metal tube and propelled by potentially faulty nuclear power. But director Kathryn Bigelow (who has proven herself adept at coherent action with Near Dark, Point Break and Strange Days) and star Harrison Ford acquit themselves well in this flick, which is based on actual but long-suppressed Cold War events in 1961. The titular Soviet sub, captained by a Russian-accented Ford, breaks down only 400 kilometers off the Eastern coast of the United States, and the crew has to work feverishly to avoid two things: being killed in the meltdown and starting World War III. Liam Neeson and Peter Sarsgaard add some acting weight to the affair, which does not altogether sink
