Hostile Waters The True story of how an antiquated Soviet Project 667a “Yankee” Class Submarine, K-219 collides with a Hunter Killer “Los Angeles” Class American submarine causing a leakage in the K-219’s missile bays, almost leading to nuclear meltdown in it’s reactors off the shores of Bermuda.
As good as “Red October”
Admittedly the roles of people like Martin Sheen and Max Von Sydow were much underplayed, but this is excusable considering most of the tension centered in the Soviet sub. Besides Hauer, the acting by the rest of the Soviet crew was superb. There are many submarine-based movies of late, and although I’m watching this three years late, Hostile Waters certainly has kept it’s head high. I’d rank this movie as good as “The Hunt For Red October”.
