Continuity mistake: During the briefing Alexei Vostrikov was receiving from the Generals, he has three stars on his shoulders, but for the most of the rest of the movie he only has two stars on his shoulders.
Factual error: Many shots of the submarine in drydock show Halifax, Nova Scotia's MacKay and MacDonald bridges in the background.
Visible crew/equipment: In the scene at the end in the cemetery, you can clearly see the reflections of the boom mic and camera in the shiny brim of one of the guy's hats.
Trivia: When this film was made, many of the original, Russian crew members involved in this historic incident were very upset about the submarine crew being portrayed as drunkards. Oddly enough, one of the promotional items given out at premieres and to executives was a silver K-19 vodka flask.
Captain Alexei Vostrikov: We will not fail.
Vadim Radtchenko: Hiroshima. 1.4 megatons.
Suslov: In American propaganda you will see how everyone has a car, nice clothes, a nice apartment. But you will never see the truth behind this lie. You will not see police dogs attacking strikers and demonstrators for civil rights. You will not see the beggars on the streets, the homeless, the negro-shantytowns in the south. You will not see the warmongers who threaten the world with nuclear holocaust.
Question: In the film there is a painting of a ship. Seems like a modern painting. I was wondering if anyone knows the artist of the painting?
Question: When they fire the test missile it appears to come out of the sail. That would be incorrect, no? (00:49:30)
