Goofs

HMS 'Scorpion' is supposed to be a British submarine, presumably (given her name) an S-Class. However, she doesn't resemble any Royal Navy submarine of the Second World War, looking far more like a late-war German Type VIIC U-boat. The only significant concession is that exterior periscopes have been altered to give it a more British look, but they are closer to what was on a T-Class submarine than on the S-Class. 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.
