Very good WW 2 drama thriller movie about Submarine warfare and tactics.Very good all around production and acting performances.Has an anti-war flow to it and manages to maintain believability despite unusual enemy mutual empathy from the combatants.Very entertaining and a great example of a well paced film.Could have been a masterpiece with a slightly deeper and more complicated story.Only for fans of Submarine warfare films and big fans of the lead actors........
