Few U.S. subs fought in the Atlantic in World War II. See more »
The German sub's 2WO (2nd Watch Officer) is wearing the uniform coat of an enlisted artilleryman of the German Federal Army. This specific design was not issued until the late 1960s/ early '70s and would not have been worn in WWII, and certainly not by a naval officer. See more »
Kapitän Jonas Herdt:
At the outbreak of World War II, Germany increased its U-boat production by 1,000%, mass-producing 17 new U-boats a month. Hitler knew the key to winning the war in Europe was to control the Atlantic. And control it he would. By 1942, German U-boats, working in groups called wolf packs, sunk over 1,000 Allied ships. Their success gave Germany a decisive advantage. They were winning the war. And if this trend continued, all of Europe would fall.

Why didn't this movie come out in the theaters????
Lion's Gate totally missed the boat (or u-boat in this case) when they stuck this on a shelf and then shuffled it off to the DVD distributors.... this was a terrific movie that could have done well in the theaters or even a world premiere on Showtime or HBO but instead, they tossed it aside with no publicity or promotion!! This is a perfect example of the mentality of these kinds of distributors!!!......
This film ranks as one of the best WWII submarine movies i have ever seen and that is saying a lot considering the fact that i am a WWii movie buff and have watched almost every one that has come out. if you like these kinds of films, rent this one. you'll be glad you did .
