Goofs

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 through 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. He had no time to swim down and retrieve them as the cutters were shown dropping a good 50 yards when he dropped them. See more »

Good story based on actual events.

A fictional story based on actual events. Intriguing as an american is portrayed in the armed service of the UK. Another such situation was in the movie 633 Squadron with Cliff Robertson. Overall a good movie.
