Did You Know?


After the torpedo strikes near the front of the submarine, the port torpedo tube is exposed, with the forward (outer) door blown away. It would therefore be impossible for crew members in the torpedo room to load a torpedo into that tube, as water would flood in as soon as they opened the inner door. See more »

Wow what a horrible movie
24 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this movie so bad I threw up...twice. Why would anyone make a movie so lame? I have to wonder what happened at the premier for this movie; I bet the actors that played in it got so ridiculed and depressed that those that didn't gag to death on their own vomit went home and committed suicide.

I would write something concerning the plot if in fact there was one...Oh yeah a navy seal avoids getting blown up so he can cuss at a JAG officer who takes command of a crippled sub which subsequently save the universe from some bad guy or something. The acting wasn't as bad as the movie but that isn't saying a lot. I must, in fairness credit the actors for their composure and the fact that they didn't break out in fits of laughter at some of the lines...For instance...The sub gets hit by a torpedo in the port side bow and the damage report that was scripted stated that the top half of the conning tower got "blown up" during this dire announcement the camera panned the outside of vessel which clearly showed no damage to the conning tower. The only damage was a little scratch in the front of the vessel, pretty impressive for a sub to survive such an explosion. What a horrible, horrible movie.
