PG-13 | | Action, War
A German submarine is boarded by disguised American submariners trying to capture their Enigma cipher machine.
When Lieutenant Tyler is walking through the German submarine during the initial boarding, a cabinet swings open revealing two bottles of Beck's beer.
Lieutenant Andrew Tyler: Yeah.
Lt. Hirsch: If you can't take out that destroyer, the danger is not that some of us may die. It's that some of us may live. These men have seen and heard things that must not be revealed to the enemy - our secrets, such as our radar ...
After the U571 blows up the German destroyer radio tower the resulting smoke and fire comes and goes between shots. Sometimes there is thick black smoke then in the next shot it almost goes out with just faint gray wisps and then goes back into full black smoke after.
