Crimson Tide

They fix the USS Alabama's radio and receive the rest of the Emergency Action Message which tells them to stand down and NOT launch their missiles. At a hearing afterwards in front of a US Navy panel of Admiral judges, no action is taken against Commander Hunter (Denzel Washington) or Captain Ramsey (Gene Hackman). Hunter receives a new command after Ramsey recommends it, and Ramsey takes early retirement.

Quotes

Hunter: Chief of the Boat.
Chief of the Boat: Sir?
Hunter: Thank you, COB.
Chief of the Boat: Thank you? Fuck you! Get it straight Mr Hunter, I'm not on your side. Now you could be wrong! But wrong or right, the Captain can't just replace you at will. That was completely improper! And that's why I did what I did. By the book.
Hunter: I thank you anyway.

Mistakes

Submarines don't have flashing lights or grated decks for that matter throughout the ship. The sound of the alarm is enough, since there are no deaf personnel on board a submarine.
