      Audience Member I am a former submariner, and this movie is much more realistic than several others I have seen. As one of the characters says, "We're expendable." We always knew this. I'd like to know which boat they used in filming this movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review jeffrey g The plot is solid, exactly what you'd expect from a World War II sub movie, but much of the acting is a little on the melodramatic side. Lots of out-of-place action music in the background during normal discussions during the movie. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Amazing war footage at the very end. The special effects are worth the watch to get to the bombing scene. The acting is stilted and not believable. You have zero sympathy for the characters in the movie. Very 1 dimensional. I think I could make a better WWII submarine interior in my man cave. Still if you love WWII submarine movies like I do, it is an important one to add to the list. I think some of the footage was re-used from "Destination Tokyo," but I could be wrong. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member WWII naval drama that sacrifices a little realism for the sake of abundant zeal. A propaganda piece that's tempered with a tiny bit of charm and humanity. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
