Avner W. Less,
At the height of Hitler's infamous U-boat war, the crew of the U.S.S. Swordfish were heading home after months at sea. They never made it. Now prisoners of war aboard U-boat 429, a small group of American survivors will find their loyalties put to the ultimate test when they're forced to join their German captors to fight for their very lives.

Kapitän Jonas Herdt:
At the outbreak of World War II, Germany increased its U-boat production by 1,000%, mass-producing 17 new U-boats a month. Hitler knew the key to winning the war in Europe was to control the Atlantic. And control it he would. By 1942, German U-boats, working in groups called wolf packs, sunk over 1,000 Allied ships. Their success gave Germany a decisive advantage. They were winning the war. And if this trend continued, all of Europe would fall.

I have always been fascinated by war movies, and in the past few years I have seen U-571 a thousand times. When I first started to watch this film, I thought it was going to be another one of those movies were the Germans are shown as baby eating monsters, who without proper instruction might put their shoes on the wrong feet. However, this movie was shown to what I would believe to be true. The director showed that not only the Germans were destructible, but the Americans were too. This movie showed that the Americans were also human, and they could be destroyed.
I can honestly say this is the best War movie I have ever seen.
