Leave your brain at home to enjoy
This movie is visually stunning but it helps to have no historical knowledge if you want to enjoy it. Some of the many errors: -The British captured the first two enigma machines, and the Americans didn't get their first until 1944 -In reality, U-571 sank 7 ships and was sunk with all hands off England, and S-33, sunk in the movie, was in Alaska (it survived the war) -The Germans had no surface fleet in operation during the war (other than the Bismark's ill-fated sortie)so why would they have a destroyer to chase U-571? Oh, and about the US stealing Britain's history, remember the old movie "Breaking the Sound Barrier" had an Englishman break the sound barrier. It left viewers (including the Secretary of the Air Force!) thinking that this Brit, rather than Chuck Yaeger broke the sound barrier. At least this film gave a disclaimer that it was fiction.

Which Roles Did Christian Bale Turn Down?

From American Psycho to Batman Begins to Vice, Christian Bale is a bonafide A-list star. But he missed out on plenty of huge roles along the way. So what were they?

Who else nearly landed Christian?
