The film toys with a Crimson Tide-style mutiny subplot, but without much conviction; director Kathryn Bigelow is more interested in how the crew steel their nerves and find the courage to put their lives at risk for each other.

A cold war thriller told from the Russian point of view which gives it the appearance of having more credibility and dark truth than if this were an American story.
