Newt's movie review

Updated, revamped, value-added, sell-for-less, US version of Das Boot. Except the US is the good guys, and somehow Enigma is smuggled off a sub (I'm pretty sure it and its key came from Africa with Rommel?).

Stress-inducing but predictable. Noticeable backdrops. Lots of inaccuracies.

Rating: definitely a discount nite rental. Don't bother with the popcorn.
