Trivia

The submarine used was a non-submersible full-sized replica originally built for the film 'U-571'. That model was supposed to be an American S-Class submarine modified to look like a U-boat; somewhat ironically, for 'Ghostboat' it was then modified again to play the role of a British S-Class.

Goofs

When the Scorpion is strafed by Bf109's, Travis points a gun at the Captain. The weapon is clearly a Colt .45 M1911A1. The standard RN sidearm in 1981 was the 9mm FN Browning Hi-Power. See more »

Sadly predictable
11 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

David Jason is brilliant. Sadly a good actor cannot salvage an obvious story line (which owes a lot to other works, such as the similarly named Ghostship) which meant it all became a little predictable, and towards the end just plain silly.

Characters behave inconsistently and illogically as the story lurches towards the less than surprising end.

The special effects themselves were also erratic - obviously a lot of money was spent on the set of the sub, but the cgi shots ranged from the okay to dreadful.

Okay if you are bored, but not the great work I was expecting.
