Storyline

Trivia

Most navy convoys supplying Britain during world war two were formed in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and crossed the Atlantic under constant threat posed by German U-boats. See more »

Goofs

When the vessel is sighted, a crewman calls out, " Schooner dead ahead". As the vessel is square rigged, it cannot be a schooner which is fore and aft rigged. No Grand Banks fisherman would ever have made this error because schooners made up a large part of that fishing fleet. See more »

one-sided, but has its moments
29 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is a low budget espionage action-thriller about a fisher boat that gets involved with the smuggling of bombs by the Nazis. The movie feels as if it comes straight from the RKL assembly line, but has indeed a bit of of flair due to the tension and action that kept me glued to my seat. The story is a bit one-sided since there's not much more than the action and espionage intrigue. Little time has been made free for romance for example. So, a B-movie that is not too corny and with a bit of flair. * 1/2 out of ****.
