Goofs

Near the end, the recon aircraft overflying the ship is a Grumman S2 ASW aircraft. The S2 went into service in the US Navy in the early 1950s, and was retired from the US Navy in 1976. Major clues are the Magnetic Anomaly Detector probe protruding from the aircraft tail, the ESM pod behind the pilot's position, and the floodlight on the outboard on the leading edge of the starboard wing.

A superior war film
15 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Rarely seen like it's subject matter, a film whose story is well told and a world away from the child-like American war epics released later in that decade. The surface raider Atlantis was perhaps the most successful of it's type preying upon merchant shipping destined for Great Britain and her allies. The performances top-to-bottom are splendid although the silent scenes at the German Atlantic Naval Headquarters in Paris ratchet up the tension like little else on celluloid-more so because of it's being based on truth. Superior to naval films both those that came before and after it because it's story is so compelling, true and hardly known. There are no sides to be taken and yet one wishes both sides well in this game of naval chess. Indeed, the captain of the merchant ship Abdullah who -in war circumstances would be considered a hero- comes out as the only villain of the piece. That the Germans mostly all speak with American accents is forgotten easily in the action and minor characters are well-sketched by their players. There is none of the John Wayne -machismo and black and white simplicity that makes most war films loud but laughable but rather admiring the quiet professionalism of sailors at war- highly recommended, indeed !
