Of course, most people like THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER... but now for a review of K-19...
I LOVE that movie! It made be cry TWICE, and I don't cry in films! What makes the movie so amazing is that it is a True Story. An inspiring tale of survival and willingness to sacrifice your life to save your friends. Incredible movie.
The only downer is Harrison Ford can not play a Russian. I'm sorry, the poor guy can't out-live his Han Solo persona, and as a Russian Captain it just doesn't work.
But his role is easily overlooked when you consider the overall dynamics of the story. I HIGHLY recommend this film. If you haven't seen it, do. The men who died on the K-19 deserve all the remembrance they get from this film and more.

"Hunt For The Red October I have owned for several years and still watch it 3+ times a year. Any Sean Conery fan is treated to a really good movie with many exciting actors. Great drama and good humor as well. K19 is also very good and intersting to see Russian view point. A Winner."
