You know it could be more difficult to leave Caprona than it was to land. We'll have that current with us going out through the tunnel. Be very difficult to navigate.
Captain Von Schoenvorts will take us through. I was with him when he took our U-33 down the Norwegian coast in winter, to sink a British cruiser. Storms and ice floes did not stop him.
He's not very good against lifeboats, though, is he?

Fun dinosaur movie with a solid British cast headed by suitably lantern-jawed Doug McClure.
Respected SF author Michael Moorcock adds a dash of intelligence to what might have been just another Sunday matinee pot-boiler, and the downbeat ending (slightly different to the book) is a change from the norm. The decision to turn the U-Boat captain from the stereotypical dastardly Hun in the original book to a philosophical man of science is also a good one.
The submarine is suitably claustrophobic and the jungle suitably clammy, just a shame that some of the dinosaurs couldn't have looked a little more than just as if they'd been borrowed from episode of "Doctor Who". Fans of which should be suitably impressed by future 'Master' Anthony Ainley's nasty performance as the treacherous German first officer Dietz.
"Auf weidersehn, Mr Tyler!"
