The real life World War II German battleship the 'Tirpitz' was renamed the 'Lindendorf' for this movie. See more »
When Quentin drops the bolt cutters as he's trying to cut through the submarine net during practice, and the sub tries and fails to ram trough the partially cut net, Quentin is briefly shown right after the sub gets stuck and he's still holding the bolt cutters even though he had just dropped them and had no time to swim down and retrieve them. The cutters were shown dropping a good 50 yards when he dropped them. See more »
James Caan plays a marine captain, who just lost his submarine and crew of fifty men during WW2. He is assigned to supervise a training mission in Scotland for a new type of submarine, to be used against the Germans.
I can't say that SUBMARINE X-1 is entirely un-watchable: it has a good pace and isn't too long either. But who wrote this "story" and why is James Caan in it? I just can't believe why they make such films, without a point and without a story. There isn't a person in this film with a decent line. It's not only enough that there isn't much of a story(training, training and a brief encounter with the Germans), the film is also filled with silly dialogue and stupidity all along. A total waste of time! 4/10
