Even when it occasionally falters, it is polished, heartbreaking, and worthy of attention.

It's a competent, by-the-numbers action melodrama.

Too much of Kursk revolves around scenes of sodden sailors sitting around wondering why someone doesn’t just hurry up and rescue them. A sentiment likely to be shared by some audiences, as well.
