VERDICT – 1/5
1) Some good naval battle sequences wrapped up in 91-minutes running time.
1) For a generation who grew up on submarine films like Das Boot (1981), The Hunt for Red October (1990), U-571 (2000), etc., this movie is quite redundant and completely avoidable. The bombardment of nautical jargon and navy battle lingo is not helping either.
2) Tom Hanks gave another formulaic performance which is not his mistake though. He’s a seriously typecasted in such roles now.
Commander Krause: We’ll ram that U-boat if we have to!
