Synopsis: A well-placed torpedo puts the surviving crew of an American submarine at the mercy of the Germans.
The story was good and the acting was mostly ok (Kretschmann, in particular, was good) but the movie was missing something. Tension, a sense of desperation, something to make me care. It's an ok movie but not even close to great.
I liked the back and forth between scenes aboard the American and German subs trying to show the differences and similarities. What I didn't like was the stereotypical "promise to come home" opening, the lame Captain's speech, and the odd jump in the timeline. The ending was ok, the movie was alright, but I certainly wouldn't go out of my way to see it.Added 10 October 2005 at 2:52 PM
