Review this title!

Yeah, it was ok...

It tired too hard to keep its audience tense, so as a result, it almost got boring because it was so repetitive with its explosions and "oh, are we going to make it past this Nazi blah-blah (ship, submarine, you name it). The plot was basically given to you in the begginning and there was a real lack of character evolution-- it was sort of introduced, but barely anything was done with it. So overall, if you want a TRULY tense war movie, not to mention a good one, I highly suggest "Saving Private Ryan" (though if you are a parent, you already know you don't want your kid watching that), or the other war classics: "Platoon" and "Full Metal Jacket".

great movie

This movie is intense and all, but it isn't too violent. In fact, only one scene might scare people and that's the one where the S-33 (american submarine) is destroyed. However, the (new) captain (Matthew McConaughey) learns to take responsibility and do what is right. Therefore, he leads his crew to victory and finally learns the proper way to command others.
