| Fairly entertaining action movie
Well I enjoyed this film. The plot line is absurd, but so what? So was Where Eagles Dare, The Dirty Dozen, Inglorious Basterds and many others.

No, it's a bit of all-action hokum set in a submarine. It doesn't compare well with Morning Departure, Above Us the Waves, We Dive at Dawn, and certainly not with the daddy of them all, Das Boot, but it's entertaining enough.

And to those fellow Brits who take umbrage at the notion that Hollywood is claiming that the US Navy did stuff that they didn't, well I say lighten up. It's just a movie, it's not pretending to be history, it's a story. My suggestion... save up your money and commission a film that shows the British SAS taking Iwo Jima, HMS Ark Royal winning the Battle of Midway and the Japanese surrender taking place on HMS King George V, after the dropping of The Bomb out of a Lancaster flown out of Burmah. Now THAT I'd like to see!
