The U-429 is a real boat that was made by the Germans in World War II but was transferred to the Italian Navy after being produced. The boat however never saw combat. See more »
The German sub's 2WO (2nd Watch Officer) is wearing the uniform coat of an enlisted artilleryman of the German Federal Army. This specific design was not issued until the late 1960s/ early '70s and would not have been worn in WWII, and certainly not by a naval officer. See more »
This is one of the worst and most disappointing films I've seen in a long time.
The acting - mostly by the actors portraying the American crew - was awful; I actually laughed through most of it. Saving some face was the performance by the two German leads; at least I could almost imagine them as part of a U-boot crew.
The script could have been written by a 12 year-old, nothing but wooden dialogue riddled with terrible clichés.
What let me down the most was the lack of concern to detail. Did the producers not have an adviser of some kind on hand to help with the accuracy of the uniforms and interiors of the submarines? Some of the scenes in the American sub appeared to have been filmed on location, but the U-boat? You're kidding, right? Next to Das Boot, or even (dare I say) U-571, this film is an embarrassment and should be avoided at all costs. Macy, what where you thinking associating yourself with this project?
