PG-13 | | Drama, History, Thriller
When Russia's first nuclear submarine malfunctions on its maiden voyage, the crew must race to save the ship and prevent a nuclear disaster.
Tom Stoppard, as script doctor, did a re-write uncredited on the script.
Capt. Mikhail Polenin:
All compartments: report readiness!
Reactor Officer Vadim Radtchenko says that the accident may trigger a "Thermonuclear" explosion. This is impossible because Thermonuclear explosion is a nuclear Fusion (fusing Hydrogen atoms into Helium and thus releasing energy) and obviously the nuclear reactor in the submarine is based on nuclear Fission (breaking Uranium atoms thus releasing energy).
