Hunter Killer

Factual error: When the order is given to activate the US Navy 6th Fleet, the warships are shown with their crews standing on deck in their dress white uniforms, which is only done when pulling in or out for a deployment, or ceremonial port call (fleet week). (01:33:00)


Factual error: The helos bringing in the President were HH-65 Dolphins (used by U.S. Coast Guard) they should have been Kamov Ka-60 Kasatka. Also the side of the helo would have said военно-морской флот and not NAVY. (00:17:25)

Suggested correction: "Submerge the ship" is the correct verbiage. While submarines are referred to affectionately as boats by the crew, they are still ships and are referred to as such when the officer of the deck or commanding officer gives orders.

The Conn Officer will first order the boat to be Rigged for Dive. Upon getting a green board on the Ballast Control Panel (BCP) indicating all major hull openings are shut (red indicator means open), and reports from all stations that the boat is Rigged for Dive, he'll order the Diving Officer to dive the boat. The Diving Officer will then order the Chief of the Watch (the BCP operator) to submerge the ship and announce it; the Chief of the Watch, on the will announce "DIVE, DIVE' on the 1MC.

Question: During the final scene, Gerard Butler gets a Russian warship to fire two missiles upon Russian defense headquarters, blowing up the bad guys and ending the saga and movie. How did he do this? (02:02:15)

Answer: He didn't. He was hoping that the Russian crew would be loyal to the president and their former captain who were aboard the USS Arkansas when the Russian minister fired on the submarine.
