Terse, serious suspense.

Harris, Stanley Kubrick's former producer, here came up with his own Dr Strangelove variant, muting the black humour but just as incisively diagnosing nuclear insanity. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- The whole thing transcends plausibility -- for a moderately wised-up viewer, at least -- because of its gross exaggeration of a highly improbable episode. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- The ending is a real piece of work that comes out of nowhere, and even though the film is a little repetitive up to that point, it's all worth it for the titular 'incident' in the end.

Parallels to today's global political environment and our government's new cold war loom as large as the icebergs surrounding the USS Bedford and its Soviet prey in the North Atlantic Sea. Full Review

Harris's film is a superior psycho-drama. Full Review

A serviceable but not very exceptional cold-war thriller. Full Review

Product Description:

At the peak of Cold War tensions, a U.S. naval ship discovers a Soviet submarine in the North Atlantic and proceeds to scrutinize its every move. As the crew's Captain Findlander pushes forward intensely, relations between members become strained and a battle of wits ensues. Sidney Poitier plays an unforturnate reporter who goes along to interview the captain, but instead gets more of a story than he'd wanted as the drama builds to a heightened climax. Richard Widmark is powerful and determined as the captain with shattered nerves.
