Why U-571 is a Great Informational Film
U-571 was an amazing film from the acting, graphics, and the information it gave about the battles the American and British had with German U-boats to steal their enigmas. Also, this film gave insight into how the troops always have to think through every outcome to even have a chance at survival. It taught me so much about the German U-boats used during WWII that you most likely wouldn't learn anywhere else. For example, the depth that no U-boat would go but in the movie, they have to dive so far down just to survive. Also, one of the best parts of the movie was the Americans going undercover to get on German U-boat. But what was bad about this film?
The storyline of the movie as a whole was weak in my opinion, you didn't really get attached to any characters. It also didn't go into a lot of detail on the ships that they encountered. For example, they didn't give any information on the Destroyer and the Milk Cow. So before going into this film have a little information or a basic knowledge of WWII going into the movie. Because even when I watched the movie I had asked many questions so I could follow along.
The movie includes violence so it might be harder for younger viewers to watch. That's why the rating PG-13 I think is a smart rating for this film. Also, there is barely any appropriate imagery in this film which is why I think 13 and up is a good age. So overall, this movie has great information and isn't a waste of your time, a definite recommendation.
