For a film based on real life, "K-19" feels an awful lot like a standard action flop.

Plinking balalaikas, syrupy strings, and, in the moments of greatest peril, angelic choirs, like a Carol Burnett Show parody of a WWII-era propaganda film.

The film doesn't sink, but it springs a few substantial leaks.

It's simply incapable of overcoming its leading man's leaden performance.

The first hour is tedious though Ford and Neeson capably hold our interest, but its just not a thrilling movie.

Gets stuck in a no man's land between the real and the fictional.

July 22, 2002
Another movie 'inspired by true events' that nevertheless includes all the cliches of a Hollywood genre.

The director chose to keep rubbing it in our faces that these men suffered and were heroes. This over-indulgence was completely unnecessary...

An untested bucket of bolts that was such a jokeavitch, it's no stretch to say that it was a sinking coffinavitch.

Message movie or an action-packed submarine spectacular? Alas, it's neither.

Remains curiously less compelling than Spock's big scene in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

Harrison Ford's strong performance is sabotaged by the film's unnecessary political gibes and a schmaltzy tacked-on ending.

The secret is now out, but I doubt if we saw the true story.

O sotaque de Ford é inconstante e Bigelow tenta forçar demais o drama. Vale pela história.
