K-19: The Widowmaker (2002)
Fresh from sending three leading ladies’ careers into deep freeze, Ford iced an entire genre next: the submarine thriller.
Following in the buoyant box-office slipstream of The Hunt For Red October, Crimson Tide and U-571, K-19 instead perished in the ghostly fathoms.
“Vee dee-liver or vee drown!” Ford’s rogue Soviet sub captain snarled to his men. They drowned.
