PG-13 | | Action, War
A German submarine is boarded by disguised American submariners trying to capture their Enigma cipher machine.
Parts of the movie's score are obviously taken from Star Trek - First Contact.
Lieutenant Andrew Tyler:
Who's the boarding party?
Marine Maj. Coonan: Well, since you're the XO, you sir. Mr. Emmett, Mr. Larson, Mr. Hirsh and nine of your ships company. Captain, of course, will remain onboard the S-33.

The "German" aircraft flying over the sub in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean is an Italian Fiat G 59 trainer, first flown in 1948.
The theatrical version contained some captions before the end credits, explaining that the Enigma was, in real-life, recovered by the British Royal Navy, and not by the American Navy as portrayed in this movie. The captions have been removed on the R2 DVD.
