K-19: The Widowmaker
Source: Catholic News Service
Fact-based, Cold War submarine drama set in 1961 as the captain (a grim Harrison Ford) and executive officer (a convincing Liam Neeson) clash onboard a Russian sub whose malfunctioning core reactor could melt down with catastrophic results. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow, the tense tale of honor, courage and human drama is marred by its sluggish pace and some blunt characterizations. Brief violence, images of injured seamen and fleeting rear nudity. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
