Picture from K-19: The Widowmaker


Based on actual events, this movie uses dramatic license to tell the story of the K-19. Shortly into the Russian submarine's maiden voyage, one of its two nuclear reactors blew a high-pressure cooling line. Because there are also nuclear warheads on board, the malfunction needs to be remedied before disaster ignites the bombs and an explosive cold war response.

MPAA Rating PG-13 for disturbing images.
Theatrical Release July 18, 2002
Cast Harrison Ford, Liam Neeson
