PG-13 | | Action, War
A German submarine is boarded by disguised American submariners trying to capture their Enigma cipher machine.
Edward Norton was set for a part in the film before bailing, because the opportunity arose for him to make his directorial debut, Keeping the Faith (2000).
It's the first time you ever seen a black man ain't it... get used to it.
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.
At least one version of the theatrical release contained no subtitles for the opening scene aboard the German submarine. This was possibly to increase dramatic effect, placing emphasis on the acting and visuals rather than the dialogue.
