nice movie with an exciting story
5 February 2013 | by (Bonn, Germany) – See all my reviews

If you are fed up with pathetic world war movies but still like heroic war sagas -and don't mind Germans being the heroes- this one might be just for you. The story is good for a relaxing evening given you like dramatic and adventurous moments. The pictures are nice, though at times, you may feel that the scenery appears rather cheap with only a few wide-angle takes. Most ships are noticeably CGI. Sometimes, I thought the writer put too much story in the 2h running time. But considering that the plot is based on real events it probably had to be that way in order to seem sound. Anyway, I did not notice any real flaws and enjoyed my time very much.
