Captain Joe Glass (Gerard Butler) is put in charge of a top secret mission to rescue any soldiers who survived after a nuclear sub goes missing just on the edge of Russian territory. But things aren’t what they seem. At the suggestion of a member of the NSA, RA John Fisk (Common) sends in a SEAL team to get eyes on what’s going on in the area. Then all hell breaks loose. A rogue Russian military officer kidnaps the Russian President and sets about to start World War Three. And it’s up to Captain Glass and his men on the sub as well as the SEAL team to rescue the Russian President and avert a war.
