      MFB Critics Monthly Film Bulletin The direction achieves agonies of suspense and thrills. The model work is somewhat weak, but the location shots atone for everything. Mar 2, 2019 Full Review John J. Puccio Movie Metropolis ...because we care about the characters, we get caught up in the suspense.

      Audience Member a good British war film from 1943 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Solid war-effort drama with a multitude of heroic personalities on board the sub. It's all a bit too perfect but it is propaganda entertainment. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member There's a clutch of films that are ingrained into the British psyche and We Dive At Dawn is one of them. The war years saw a flurry of rousing movies designed specifically to tell of the heroism of British forces and keep up the spirits of the public at home front. We Dive At Dawn follows the crew of the submarine Sea Tiger on a mission in the Baltic and North Atlantic to destroy a German battleship. It has all those classic submarine movie elements such as the cat and mouse game with the quarry, sea mines, depth charges and nets that snarl the sub. Like the best of this genre, the plot focuses on the interplay between the tightly knit crew and we see both the routine and the the tension that makes up the lives of the characters, A competent cast is headed by John Mills who seems to embody that more relaxed style of Captain that fiction populates submarines with. The direction by Anthony Asquith is competent and business-like and the special effects generally stand up well against the standards of today. Many films in this genre are cliched and hackneyed but with its engaging and gripping storyline, this is a landmark movie that deserves the reputation that it rightly holds. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member While the plot is understandable, the accents of these sea faring Brits is not. Fast talking, I barely understood a word they were saying. That does not mean that this is a bad film. Its just that I could not understand more than half of the lines spoken. See a clip here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXI4G9JzVek Sea Tiger, the British submarine, is assigned the top secret mission of sinking Nazi Germany's new battleship, the Brandenburg, before she enters the Kiel Canal to begin sea trials in the Baltic Sea.

He recalled a crash dive: "The ship then seemed to stand on her nose and I felt her speeding like an arrow towards the sea bed; charts and crockery went flying in all directions; I hung on to a rail near the periscope trying to look heroic and totally unconcerned; the only thing that concerned me was the fact that I was sure that my face had turned a pale shade of pea-green."---- John Mills, lead actor, We Dive at Dawn 2 The film has been issued on VHS by Madacy Records and Timeless Multimedia among others, and on DVD by ITV DVD and Carlton.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member A down-to-earth and very good British war drama. It's not over dramatized, not until the end anyway and even then not much. It is also a story about the people aboard a submarine and what life was like. There is a very interesting array of characters within the film and characters in different situations in their lives. There is drama, suspense and an occasional bit of humour thrown in too. The ending of the film is slightly over dramatized however, and it seems a little far-fetched. The cast has been well chosen and perfectly cast in their roles. There is definitely a class structure within the cast with the officers speaking in 'typical British' accents and the ratings speaking in different regional accents. With this is mind John Mills is excellent as the submarine Lieutenant and it seems the part was written for him. Eric Portman is also perfectly cast as a ships rating but has the manner of a man with a sense of brutality, which is displayed through his dialogue. A good down-to-earth war film, which has a good story, good characters and a good cast. It is only let down by the slightly over dramatized ending. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member John Mills and Eric Portman lead the cast in this remarkable little submarine movie that was filmed in 1943. A entertaining story and especially natural, well drawn characters elevate this above the simple propaganda piece that might be expected of a wartime movie.
