[Synopsis]

The U.S. Los Angeles class submarine USS Tampa Bay vanishes while shadowing the Russian Akula-class submarine Konek in the Arctic. Rear Admiral John Fisk (Common) sends the Virginia-class submarine USS Arkansas, under the command of newly promoted and unorthodox Commander Joe Glass (Gerard Butler) to investigate.

At the same time, a Navy SEAL team under the command of Lieutenant Bill Beaman (Toby Stephens) is sent in to discreetly observe the Russian naval base in Polyarny, Murmansk Oblast, but their mission is swiftly complicated when Martinelli (Zane Holtz), the team’s new designated marksman recruit, is injured during the HALO drop. When they arrive at the naval base, they witness defense minister, Admiral of the Fleet Dmitriy Durov (Mikhail Gorevoy), conducting a coup d’état and taking Russian President Nikolai Zakarin (Alexander Dyachenko) prisoner, and swiftly realize that Durov intends to trigger a war. Their location is almost discovered by the Russians during a radio intercept check, but the SEALS manage to hide away undetected. Martinelli is shot in the leg by a Russian officer firing blindly into their hiding location, forcing the team to leave him behind.

Meanwhile, Arkansas discovers the destroyed Tampa Bay, and also finds the sunken Russian submarine Konek damaged in a manner that suggests internal sabotage rather than external attack. They are attacked by another Russian Akula submarine, Volkov, that has been hiding under an iceberg, but Glass is able to destroy the ambusher and rescue Russian survivors from Konek, including its commanding officer, Captain 2nd rank Sergei Andropov (Michael Nyqvist).

Back at base, the U.S. government learns about the coup. Admiral Charles Donnegan (Gary Oldman) recommends preparing for war, while Fisk suggests that Arkansas be sent to rendezvous with Beaman’s team after they have rescued Zakarin. Glass manages to convince the reluctant Andropov to help, and with Andropov’s knowledge of the minefield around the base, Glass navigates Arkansas near the base undetected. Meanwhile, Beaman’s team rescue Russian Presidential Security Service Agent Oleg (Yuri Kolokolnikov), who was previously shot by Durov’s men when he tried to stop Durov from holding Zakarin hostage. Together they infiltrate the base and succeed in retrieving President Zakarin, but lose Oleg, and two teammates, Devin Hall (Michael Trucco) and Matt Johnstone (Ryan McPartlin), in the process. With Martinelli providing sniper cover fire, Beaman delivers the injured president to Arkansas’s deep-submergence rescue vehicle, then goes back alone for Martinelli, saving him just before he was about to be executed.

As U.S. and Russian fleets face off for battle, Arkansas sustains further damage when they are attacked by Andropov’s old ship, RFS Yevchenko—a heavily armed destroyer now commanded by Captain Vlade Sutrev (Ilia Volok), a member of Durov’s conspiracy—but Andropov is able to communicate a message affirming that President Zakarin is aboard the submarine. When Durov orders his forces at the base to fire missiles at the surfaced Arkansas, Glass refuses to take action, recognizing that firing back at the Russians could start the war he is trying to stop. In the last seconds, Andropov’s old crewmates defy orders and destroy the incoming missiles with the close-in weapon system before they can strike Arkansas, and subsequently destroy Durov’s naval base headquarters with their missiles. With the war averted, Glass docks Arkansas to the Russian naval base to return Zakarin and Andropov’s surviving crew to their country. Arkansas picks up Beaman and Martinelli, and travels back to the U.S. with a Russian Navy escort.

FORM GUIDE

Pompey scored in the final seconds of stoppage-time to beat Gillingham extend their winning run to six games.

It looked like a contest that was full of effort and desire – if a little short on quality – was going to end all square.

But some good play from substitute Michael Jacobs and a deflection from Jack Tucker saw the Blues find the net right at the death.

Danny Cowley made one change from the side that impressively won away at Lincoln earlier in the week.

With Sean Raggett serving a one-match ban, Louis Thompson returned to the starting line-up and Shaun Williams dropped back into defence.

Lee Brown had completed his own suspension, although a back injury saw him initially named on the bench, only to then be replaced by academy midfielder Harry Jewitt-White.

And with Clark Robertson also still on the sidelines, it meant the captain’s armband was worn by Ronan Curtis.

There were a couple of familiar faces in the hosts’ side, with former Fratton loanees Stuart O’Keefe and John Akinde both starting.

Pompey made a fast start and had a couple of excellent chances to break the deadlock in the opening stages.

George Hirst looked to make the most of a poor Robbie McKenzie header and lifted a shot towards goal, but Jamie Cumming managed to push it against the crossbar.

The ball then hit the arm of Tucker as he tried to clear, but referee Dean Whitestone decided it was not deliberate.

Joe Morrell soon slipped a neat pass through to Hirst, who cut inside and fired in an effort that was beaten away by Cumming.

And the keeper then recovered well to deny Mahlon Romeo after the loose ball fell kindly for the wing-back.

But Gillingham fought their way back into the contest and began to dominate proceedings as the first half progressed.

They were pegging the visitors back into their own half, but without being able to test Gavin Bazunu between the sticks.

Marcus Harness had an opportunity at the other end after being teed-up by Morrell and dragged a shot past the post.

But the Gills had a better chance to forge ahead on 35 minutes, as Akinde held off a couple of challenges and charged forward, only to hit a tame attempt straight at Bazunu.

A couple of low Williams corners in quick succession then found Curtis and Reeco Hackett, but neither could make a clean connection.

Gillingham 0

Just as they had before the break, Pompey started the second half strongly and almost took the lead within three minutes of the restart.

It was a great run from Harness, who saw space open up in front of him before hitting a shot that was excellently palmed away by Cumming.

The ball then ricocheted into the path of O’Keefe, whose low effort was kept out in relatively comfortable fashion by Bazunu.

Gillingham felt they should have been awarded a penalty when Akinde took a tumble over Bazunu just past the hour mark.

But Bazunu had definitely got to the ball just before the striker and Whitestone correctly waved away their noisy appeals.

Cowley made his first substitution soon after that, with Thompson being replaced by Arsenal loanee Miguel Azeez.

And with the contest still delicately poised, a second switch followed on 71 minutes, as Hirst made way for Harrison up front.

The game was lacking a bit of quality, summed up by Danny Lloyd’s wild finish when found in a good position by Akinde.

Pompey’s final change saw Jacobs – who scored at Priestfield last season – come on for Hackett.

And the newcomer had an immediate chance to be the late hero, but could not connect with Morrell’s low cut-back.

There was anger from the Blues when they had the ball on the edge of the Gills box, only for Whitestone to stop the play so Max Ehmer could receive some treatment.

They tried to attack from the resulting drop ball and despite taking a fine first touch, Harness was unable to squeeze his way through the back-line.

And Connor Ogilvie then tried to nod back a Romeo cross for Harrison, but the ball flew just behind the striker.

Then, with just a few seconds of the contest remaining, JACOBS showed some neat skill by the touchline and sent the ball into the centre, where it hit Tucker and flew into the net.

It was arguably harsh for Gillingham, but the large number of travelling fans who had spent the afternoon shivering on the open stand behind the goal did not seem to care.

And there was barely time for the contest to restart before the final whistle blew to lengthen Pompey’s fine run.

Pompey made it five wins in succession with an impressive performance against Lincoln at Sincil Bank.

They were in charge for most of the contest, but had to wait until the closing stages of the first half before Marcus Harness increased his goal tally.

And they were rewarded for their overall play after the break, with George Hirst doubling the lead and Reeco Hackett wrapping things up at the death.

Danny Cowley made three changes from the side that dramatically beat AFC Wimbledon on home soil at the weekend.

Kieron Freeman came in for the suspended Lee Brown, but started in the centre of defence, with the Blues switching to a 3-4-1-2 system.

There were also starts for Hackett – as a left-sided wing-back – and Joe Morrell, as Michael Jacobs and Louis Thompson dropped to the bench.

With the absence of Clark Robertson and Brown, former Imps hero Sean Raggett was handed the captain’s armband.

Pompey dominated the first half and created a number of promising openings, but were often let down by the final ball.

An early Shaun Williams corner was turned wide by Raggett, while a deflected Ronan Curtis effort was diverted behind by Josh Griffiths.

And the Imps keeper was called into action again from the resulting corner, which was fired towards goal by Connor Ogilvie.

Curtis miscued another shot narrowly past the post and Ogilvie then saw his goal-bound drive cleared from the line by Lewis Montsma.

The momentum faded after that, although the Blues were still looking the stronger team, with Williams and Morrell – the latter facing his former club – dominating in midfield.

They received a blow when Raggett was – rather harshly – booked for a foul in the middle of the pitch on 28 minutes.

It was the defender’s fifth yellow card of the season and, just before an amnesty kicks in, means he will be suspended for Saturday’s trip to Gillingham.

There had not been too much trouble at the other end, although the home support wanted a penalty when Hackett eased Lasse Sorensen off the ball inside the area.

The breakthrough almost came in stoppage-time, as Hirst charged his way up the pitch and past a couple of challenges before forcing a save from Griffiths.

But there was still time for Pompey to take the lead before the break – and there was no surprise to see who scored.

Mahlon Romeo found Hirst in the box and although he was denied, the loose ball ran for HARNESS to fire home in a fourth successive appearance.

Lincoln CIty 0

An early opportunity for Harness was stabbed wide, as the Blues looked to build on their lead once the action restarted.

And they went a lot closer to finding a second goal following some good work from Curtis along the edge of the box.

He eventually picked out Romeo on the right and the wing-back’s low effort struck the inside of the post and bounced back out.

But the Imps began to pick up the pace and former Fratton loanee Chris Maguire curled a shot narrowly over after cutting inside from the left.

Just as they were starting to get into the ascendency, however, the visitors doubled their lead – much to the delight of the noisy travelling army.

Harness slipped a neat pass through to Curtis, who unselfishly squared the ball for HIRST to slide home his first league goal for the club.

Lincoln tried to find a path back into the contest, but Gavin Bazunu did well to deny Hakeeb Adelakun from point-blank range.

Cowley then freshened things up with a couple of changes in quick succession, as Jacobs came on for Hirst before Thompson replaced Morrell.

And a third substitution followed on 80 minutes, with Harness making way for the fit-again Ellis Harrison.

Pompey appeared to be coasting towards the final whistle, but there was further reason to celebrate towards the end.

Harrison was brought down on the edge of the box and although the free-kick from HACKETT hit the wall, he was first to the loose ball to slam it into the net.

[Synopsis]

In Manhattan, Tom Cat, who dreams of becoming a pianist, plays in Central Park. While, his longtime rival, Jerry Mouse, is in search of a new home. After Tom’s keyboard is destroyed in a fight, he chases Jerry but bumps into a young woman named Kayla Forester, who loses her job as a result. Down on her luck, Kayla wants to prove her capabilities by looking for a position at New York’s fanciest hotel, the Royal Gate. Kayla presents a stolen resume as her own and is hired to help set up a high-profile wedding. While Kayla gets a tour of the hotel, Jerry takes refuge in the hotel where his regular shenanigans involve stealing food and items to ramp up his new lifestyle, and Tom comes up with various strategies to enter the hotel and pursue Jerry.

Local celebrities Preeta Mehta and her fiancé Ben are greeted as they arrive, along with their pets Spike and Toots, who are all unaware of Jerry stealing from Preeta’s handbag, with the exception of Spike. As the couple is escorted to their room, Jerry’s presence is revealed, which puts the wedding and the hotel at risk. Kayla offers to help catch Jerry, but fails and realizes that he won’t be easy to catch. After many failed attempts, Tom successfully enters the hotel, with him and Jerry ending up fighting and wrecking the whole hotel room. Kayla comes to check due to noise complaints and befriends Tom because of their same goal of catching Jerry, which has Tom hired by owner Mr. Dubros to exterminate Jerry. Tom and Kayla are threatened by their boss Terence to be fired, if Tom fails to catch Jerry.

After many failed attempts, Tom designs a big mouse trap and gets Jerry out of the hotel. Meanwhile, Kayla helps with the wedding plans and learns from Preeta that her engagement ring is missing. Jerry returns and reveals to Kayla that he had Preeta’s ring with him, and he agrees to give it back to her, if she lets him stay in the hotel. Before Kayla can agree, Terence returns from walking Spike, and tries to look into Jerry hiding in Kayla’s coat pocket, but ends up creating a huge scene to which Spike, Tom, and Jerry’s ensuing chase destroys the hotel lobby.

Terence is put on leave, while Kayla takes over as event manager for returning the ring stolen by Jerry. Kayla tells Tom and Jerry that, if they want to stay in the hotel, the pair will have to get along and spend the whole next day far away from the hotel together, to which they agree. While Kayla takes care of the hotel and manages the wedding with the crew, Tom and Jerry bond during their trip, but are taken to a pet compound after they inadvertently disrupt a baseball game. A vengeful Terence separately visits Tom and Jerry and tells lies of what the pair said to each other behind their backs, which angers them and incites them to fight at the wedding, resulting in the wedding and the rest of the hotel getting destroyed.

After Kayla admits her deception and leaves in shame while Preeta renounces the wedding, a remorseful Tom and Jerry reconcile with each other. They convince Kayla and the hotel crew, which includes a reluctant Terence, to salvage the wedding, to make up for the hotel being destroyed by their cat-and-mouse battle. The wedding is held at Central Park, where Kayla apologizes to Preeta about the chaos and promises that Tom and Jerry have changed their ways. Ben also apologizes to Preeta because of the extensive expenses, in light of impressing her dad. Kayla and the woman whose resume she had taken from reconcile with each other and get jobs at the hotel, and Tom also gets one as the hotel’s pianist. Tom plays the piano for Toots, with Jerry joining the party, until a mishap causes them to revert to their old habits.
