The story of USSR's first nuclear ballistic submarine, which suffered a malfunction in its nuclear reactor on its maiden voyage in the North Atlantic in 1961. The submarine's crew, led by the unyielding Captain Alexi Vostrikov, races against time to prevent a Chernobyl-like nuclear disaster which threatens not only the lives of his crew, but has the potential to ignite a world war between the super powers.

The submarine used in the film was once owned by Finnish businessman J. Komulainen and was open to the public. It also was used in the Finnish television comedy Vintiöt (1994) in its opening sequence. See more »
At the beginning of the movie, Vostrikov wears his wedding ring on his left hand. In later shots it is on his right hand as is customary with Russians. See more »
K-19 is perfect truly movie about Russian submarines. I can't find any mistakes in plot - all things is correct! May be it's funny, but K-19 is best patriotic movie for Russians which was made by Americans! Thank you, Harrison Ford and all, who made this movie! 9/10 (sorry for my English...)
