Trivia

During their first night in the bunker, when Kreuzmann is expressing his worries to Ebert about an American attack and the bunker being "not quite right," at the end of the conversation he says "God with us." Aside from being an obvious religious statement, it also refers to the saying that was inscribed on Germany Army belt buckles: "Gott mit uns" or "God with us." This was also common inscription on armour in the German military until the end of the Third Reich, and has a history and usage in Germany dating back as far as the Teutonic Order. See more »

Goofs

When Schenke fires his P38, the slide locks back, indicating the magazine is empty. Yet he fires a few rounds more in the next scene, without any reload in between. See more »

Quotes

Lt. Krupp: [after announcing their orders to hold the bunker with low ammo and no reinforcements] This time they will not have the element of surprise.
LCpl. Ebert: They don't need surprise if there's an armoured column heading straight for...
Lt. Krupp: Where is this armoured column coming from?
LCpl. Ebert: OH, COME ON! The same place they did! We don't know what's going on at the front.

Believe me I really WANTED to like it, but...
17 August 2003 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

I'd heard very good things about 'The Bunker', and the idea of combining war and horror is potentially very rich, so I was really looking forward to watching it. I kept an open mind as it began, but after about 25 minutes in this movie started to fall apart, and by the three quarter mark I was yawning... I didn't mind that the cast playing German soldiers all spoke in British accents, that wasn't a problem, but the characters were so sketchy I had difficulty telling them apart. Also if any kind of who's-gonna-die-next? story is to succeed you must CARE about the fate of the characters, and 'The Bunker' never managed to do that. I couldn't care less what happened to any of them. BIG PROBLEM. On top of that I didn't think there was any real suspense generated and the climax was a let down. Many people who seem to know their stuff love 'The Bunker', but in all honesty I can't agree. A very disappointing movie.
