The story of the new high end series "Das Boot" begins in the fall of 1942, at a time when, in the midst of World War II, submarine warfare was becoming ever more brutal. The plot follows a young submarine crew on a dangerous surveillance mission, as the Résistance begins to gain influence at the French port of La Rochelle. During the Autumn of 1942, in occupied France, U-612 is now ready for its maiden voyage, preparing to head into the increasingly brutal warfare with its young crewmen, including the new commander, Klaus Hoffmann (Rick Okon).

It´s german produced Television. Produced by Bavaria productions, so what to expect? I feared the "worst" and it totally met my expectations. Bad acting from people who are talking like those "reality tv scripted extras" from the street. I gave it 3 stars, cause at least the quality of the set, effects werent as bad as everyone is used to from german productions. But with a budget of 25 Mil. at least here was something to hope for.
Furthermore, who had the idea to implement in a 2nd WW Drama about Submarines two lead roles with strong women characters? There was no need, no sense even in doing it.
To wrap it up....Germany is, was and will never be able to produce 1, max 2 Movies in an amount of 2 decades which are acceptable. Everything else is on Til Schweiger Level and more then embarassing....Das Boot is par mediocre to give an objective judgement
