Super submarine thriller
6 June 2001 | by (Bracebridge Ont) – See all my reviews

This is a well done nail biter with great effects, sensitive acting, believable characters and gritty realism. It's been criticised for taking liberties with the book. Yet little is really known about the incident which legitimately opens the door to dramatic licence. It's right up there in the top five submarine movies of all time.
