Kursk: The Last Mission review – devastating drama tackles Kursk: The Last Mission review – devastating drama tackles
I found myself gripping my seat on more than one occasion as the situation the men found themselves in began to worsen, and I lost count of the number of times I involuntarily held my breath during underwater scenes which were literally a matter of life and death for all involved. Kursk: The Last Mission is a dramatisation of the 2000 K-141 Kursk submarine disaster, where Russian bureaucracy, failing technology, and a series of unfortunate accidents, all came together to claim the lives of 188 men.
What to know
The surviving crew members rally at the aft-most compartment, now rapidly taking on water. The crew desperately await rescue, while on dry land the sailors’ wives begin to hear rumours regarding the submarine. Royal Navy Commodore David Russell detects the seismic events and deduces that Kursk has had an accident. Admiral Grudzinsky, commander of the Northern Fleet, initially believes there are no survivors, but immediately tapping is heard through the hull of the submarine and the Russians deploy a rescue submersible. The old and poorly maintained craft cannot form a seal on the Kursk 's hull and is forced to return to the surface and wait for a 12-hour battery recharge. Seeberg, Kenan (9 April 2017).

It lasted for a total of 4 days and made news headlines around the world as international help, including from the British Navy tried to reach out to the Russian government and offer assisstance to assist in the rescue of the crew of this nuclear submarine, but alas to no avail, tragically ending the lives of its 118 crew members. a b c d e "Lea Seydoux Boards EuropaCorp Submarine Drama 'Kursk' – Berlin".
