Factual errors: The diesel submarine shown is a World War II design which even includes an anti-aircraft gun platform aft of the conning tower. Modern diesel submarines (even old ones used for training) have a hull form similar to those of nuclear submarines.See more »

Really a disaster movie, 8 December 2009
Author: crnyy from Serbia

This is the most unrealistic and definitely THE WORST movie i have seen in past 5-10 years. 100% waste of money on filming this. It's really funny how some directors can destroy a lot of money on such a project and create a failure in his career. I mean really, the woman holding the rod in the crater with her left hand, half bent, and with the right grips the belt. Vehicle which is full of electronics and is working on petrol, should not have a battery to work? Why then we all spend money to buy them if so. Hello! And who the devil will then initiate the starter like shown in this movie? Radio antenna with few thin cables? Yeah, right! The film is full of similar mistakes and therefore remains in my statement that this is the worst film that I have watched in life. (After Matrix 2) Do not watch this because it is not worth losing 90 minutes of life...
