In the midst of World War II, the battle below the seas rages. The Nazis have the upper edge as the Allies are unable to crack their war codes. That is, until a wrecked U-boat sends out an SOS signal, and the Allies realize this is their chance to seize the 'enigma coding machine'. But masquerading as Nazis and taking over the U-boat is the smallest of their problems. The action really begins when they get stranded on the U-boat.Written by
This film could have been produced in 1940 as well. What makes me so angry and sad is that this film teaches Americans today that Germans are still their enemies. It is an insult on all Germans today and especially those who fought in the damned war. Why is it necessary to demonize Germans in a Hollywood movie produced sixty years after the war? Do the Americans plan to make war on Germany? Or what the hell else might have been the producer's intention? Worst of all: the scene where the German crew machine-guns the helpless people in a boat. I as a German feel deeply offended by this movie and my opinion about America and Hollywood has changed in some points. I am angry about making the mistake watching this movie.
