Thumbs up The Command, well worth watching, now on Netflix.

The new DVD a British Film on the K-145 Oscar Class, Submarine, the Kurst, which Sunk in the Bearings Sea, in August, 2000. Was very well made. You get to find out a lot of how much the Russian Navy has fallen since the Break up of the Soviet Union in 1991. Max Von Sedow also did a very good job as the Top Russian Admiral. The Incompetence of the Russians is shown all through the Movie. They just could not get it together to Rescue the 22 Men who were still alive. It was sort of funny seeing all the Russians with British Accents, but you were able to know what that one Woman said in the Briefing when she was screaming at the Admirals, and raised so much Hell, they gave her a Shot, and Took her away. I recall seeing that scene on the News, and always wondered what she was saying. The most Memorable of all the Actor's is Colin Firth who was excellent in his Role as the Royal Navy Commodore who almost was able to save those Men. The Russians are left with only 1 DSRV Vehicle to try to Rescue the Men, and they can never get the Seal to work. After 3 Failures, they finally give up, and allow the British to send down their DSRV, with Divers in Heavy Suits. They get the Hatch open, go inside and find every one had Died. The Commodore was watching on the Bridge of his Ship, and when he saw he was too Late, in one of the memorable Scenes of the Film, He gets up, Puts on his Hat, and goes outside to the Railing to look at the Sea. This Film is well worth watching, The little Boy who's Father was the Star of the Film, at the Memorial Service, just stared at Max Von Sedow He would not shake the Admirals Hand. I would also mention, remember the Watch of the Boys Father. It will come back to you. Paul

It;s just a movie and probably somewhat biased in portrayal for drama's sake. The US navy has slipped too. The recent rash of navigation errors and collisions in the Pacific is proof of that. I understand that over 50% of naval aircraft are not in service due to parts/maintenance issues. Not just the Russians. Also from the looks of it, China will be the next primary naval power out there.

Typo regarding location:

The Kursk sank in the Barents Sea.
The Barents Sea is part of the Arctic Ocean near Norway and Russia.

The Bering Sea is part of the Pacific Ocean by Alaska and Russia.
