Synopsis:
Based on the gripping true story of the Kursk submarine tragedy of 2000 in which 188 men lost their lives, 'Kursk: The Last Mission' is a tense submarine thriller from critically-acclaimed director Thomas Vinterberg. When a Russian naval exercise goes horribly wrong, the Kursk submarine erupts in flames killing most of the men on-board and sending the trapped survivors to the bottom of the sea. Time is running out for Russian Captain Mikhail Averin (Matthias Schoenaerts) and his crew, as fire engulfs the vessel, starving them of oxygen. Ignoring the advice of their own people, the Russian government refuses the help of the UK Navy operation headed by Commodore David Russell (Colin Firth).
When they finally give way to mounting domestic pressure, it's too little too late...

So-so true take of submarine disaster - Kursk: The Last Mission review by PV

Spoiler Alert
28/10/2019

This movie is unusual as it shows Brits as heroes and not villains, the usual trope. Maybe because it's not really a Hollywood movie and is full of German actors and the aged Max von Sydow as a Soviet era Navy boss.

As per usual, when what happened on the sub is unknown and as we all know what happened in the end, there has to be a lot of stuff invented and events to create narrative structure. These are sometimes successful but at other times seem forced.

I suppose an inevitable comparison is to be made with superior drama such as Chernobyl, and this film looks a bit B-movie by comparison.

But it's worth a look. 2.5 stars rounded up.
