A very underrated submarine flick starring Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson - two amazing actors who really make an awesome duo in this feature film. I did think it was a little weird hearing Harrison Ford do the Russian accent, but aside from that, I really liked this one.

A very good movie. As a fictional work inspired by real events, this film is much more satisfying than many action-adventure movies that lose their way precisely because they are so unbelievable. Ford and Neeson are excellent.

In the top 3 of the most disturbing movies I've ever seen

The film on a true story about the Soviet Union and the great Soviet submarine called the K19 that was the world's first submarine of its kind. It would been better if It was in Russian yet i still gave it 5-stars

Even though this submarine disaster film apparently takes liberties with the true events and it doesn't hit the high watermark of other submarine films this is still a solidly acted, extremely well filmed and well scored movie that also looks great and has some gripping moments.

It's good movie to watch

If you like dramas about submarines, you will love this one, with stand-up performances by Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson.

Good intensity and drama, however the Russian accents from nearly everyone were dreadful and downright embarrassing. We're seen plenty of submarine movies- this one brought nothing new to the table, although based on a true story. Rating: 6.5 / 10

Tense telling of the true story (albeit loosely) of what to do with a radioactive submarine. Ford commands, Neeson leads the mutiny.

Now if this were about a fucking American submarine saving both America and the fucking soviets from total anihilation, they would have given it a Best Picture Oscar. When they make certain changes to make a story more commercially acceptable, it gets flak for historiacal inaccuracy and when they make a completely accurate film they accuse it trying to take a history lesson. Well fuck them all.

Coming to the movie, it's engaging and almost gut-wrenching, especially those radiation scenes that anyone with some sort of emotional quotient and one who is not plagued by patriotism would be moved. bigelow's direction is spot on, the music is fantastic, especially the orchestra and all actors perform extremely well.

This was pretty good. Ford and Neeson were great. The danger of the radiation poison and it's effects made it exciting.

Action pic about Russian submarine is poorly acted, scripted and directed. It's a "Crimson Tide" ripoff.
April 25, 2016
A decent thriller once you get over the shock and horror of Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson's atrocious Russian accents.
February 20, 2016
K-19 is a passable movie, even with Harrison Fords laughably bad Russian accent.
January 18, 2016
Harrison Ford shines in this true story about the first of many disasters that befell the K-19, a submarine launched by the Soviet Union at the outset of John F. Kennedy's presidency.
December 7, 2015
Enjoyable, watchable - specially if (you like me) like both Neeson and Ford AND war/submarine movies. Too much deviation from the real life event though, could have been made just as thrilling while sticking to the facts instead.
September 12, 2015
I wasn't expecting much, but overall, K-19 is actually pretty good.
June 26, 2015
God not great thriller but I was hoping for more.
June 10, 2015
Even though playing a role of failing officer, Harrison Ford was still him. Only Ford - Neeson's combination is already worth watching again.
½ May 29, 2015
Convincing performances and tense direction make for a powerful film, despite its often clunky writing.
