Yes, it is a movie. However, it does show the main points of what happened aboard the K-19. The Soviet Navy did have problems with equipment reliability. And if the air gets bad on a sub you just open the hatch, right?

We are all aware that this is just a movie, right?

Besides, tapping is a perfectly good way to fix my old speedometers, so it
shouldf be ok for a sub.
