This movie is based on both the real-life Chariot human torpedo attacks on the German battleship Tirpitz during the Second World War as well as Operation Source, which was a series of attacks by X-class midget submarines on Nazi German warships, the Tirpitz, Scharnhorst and Lutzow, in Northern Norway during World War II.

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 »
Routine and quite boring 1960s war film concentrating on the X-series of midget submarines. In this typical afternoon matinee movie James Caan appears as a totally miserable and humourless Canadian submarine commander. Presumably Caan appears to make the film saleable in North America. The underwater scenes and onshore action don't add up to much but the occasional glimpses of scenery around the Scottish lochs makes marginally for some of the tedium. The shoot out with German paratroopers has some tension and excitement. Overall, one for rainy, cold, wintery Sunday afternoons. 3/10.
