Based upon the novel "The Good Shepherd" by C S Forester, this is the thrilling story of an Allied convoy crossing the North Atlantic in 1942 as it faces relentless attack by a German submarine wolf pack. The leader of the convoy's destroyer screen is a US Navy commander making his first Atlantic crossing. The story focuses on the his command responsibility as he fights the cold, the relentless night, the brutal sea, and his deep fatigue as he chases down the attacking submarines in the deadly game of cat and mouse. The exciting story, a thrilling ride-along with the beleaguered captain, so deeply portrays the elements of battle command that for a long period of time the book was used as a text at the US Naval Academy.

Shots of the surfaced German subs shadowing the convoy before nightfall show their conning towers unmanned. In reality, the bridge crew would man the conning tower immediately after surfacing, in any weather, to look out for ships and aircraft. They would only drop down again for the next dive.

Greyhound review
15 July 2020 | by pedroborges-90881See all my reviews

Actually there is not much good things to say it, the film is kind of immersive, they try to make you feel like you are in the same environment of the characters, but even some good scenes, especially the first chase scene which have some suspense and the score is good in that part but also kinda look like a copy from Dunkirk original score, the whole film don't actually doesn't work very well.

Tom Hanks can't give a bad performance, is nice that his character is a religious person and of course as a capitan noboby is going to make fun of that in front of him, and is good to see him in a war movie, but i also would like to see more the inside of the ship, the oher characters preparing to launch the bombs, kinda like that scene in Titanic that shows the people working in the underground of the ship.

Also the CGI doesn't work very well, the film looks too clean and the editing is not good, for example in the begining of the film they cut to a scene of someone drawing a swastika, and the way they did looks like it was in the american ship, is very strange.
