American submarine USS Alabama, armed with nuclear weapons is ordered to strike Russia before they can launch a threatened attack against the United States. Highly decorated veteran captain Hackman sets off on a mission to declare war on the former Soviet Union but finds himself involved in a mutiny when newly-promoted XO commander Washington refuses to take orders and delay the threat of a missile launch.

Incredibly tense, well directed and very entertaining movie with a good cast and of course with the financial backing of Bruckheimer/Simpson, this is a must-see.

An extended cut of the film has also been released on DVD.
