Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.
Five years after her husband and daughter are killed in a senseless act of violence, a woman comes back from self-imposed exile to seek revenge against those responsible and the system that let them go free.
John Gallagher Jr.,
One of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, Marie Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless.
A U.S. submarine, the USS Tampa Bay, vanishes while shadowing a Russian Akula-class submarine in the Arctic. Rear Admiral John Fisk sends a Virginia-class submarine, the USS Arkansas, under the command of newly-promoted and unorthodox Commander Joe Glass to investigate. At the same time, a Navy SEAL team under the command of Lieutenant Bill Beaman is sent in to discreetly observe a Russian naval base. When they arrive at the naval base, they witness defense minister Dmitri Durov conducting a coup d'etat and taking Russian President Zakarin prisoner, and swiftly realize that Durov intends to trigger a war..
The exterior of the USS Arkansas was built in the famous water reservoir of Pinewood Studios, where the aquatic sequences of many films were filmed. This is where Commander Glass and his men prepare the submarine for their mission in Russian territorial waters. This is also where the Russian zodiac is towed alongside Arkansas and Glass meets his colleague of the Beaman underground operations for the first time. The underwater sequence in which Beaman is trying to save the Russian president was shot in the giant reservoirs of Leavesdon Studios. See more »
Glass is shown in Scotland hunting a red deer stag with a bow in the middle of winter. Red stags are not in season in the winter and it's illegal to hunt with a bow in the UK. See more »
An ok military thriller with a passable and predictable story.
It holds your attention as it swaps between the submarine crew and the land forces, although there isn't much tension or suspense and it does get a bit silly towards the end. The mix of green screen, stock footage and live action scenes are a bit jarring and although the acting is ok, the characters don't have much depth to them.
