This version is very LOOOOONG! Over 3 hours!
Still a great movie, although this director's cut may be a tad too long...
For those caring about movie sound, you have a choice to make: watch it in original German with subtitles (feels much more authentic), or watch in English, which has much better sound quality (5.1) and sound effects but the voices seem very detached from the movie.
Perhaps showing its age a bit. A good movie but definitely too long and drawn out.
The experiences of a German U-boat in WWII. Pretty good submarine movie that is let down somewhat by pedestrian direction. Also the quality of the print is fairly poor despite claims that it is a restored print. 3.5 stars
The director's cut! Three and a half hours! High-def! Fantastic
A brilliant story and the filming was very good. However I didn't feel that connected to the characters which was disappointing because it dealt with an extremely human side of war. Perhaps it could have been a lot shorter.
It removes all biases and simply presents these German sailors as nothing more than men fighting for their country, but the attention to detail of submarine life and the frightening experiences that are seen by the viewers make them feel involved and hold their attention for the almost 3.5 hour runtime like any good film should. It provides an essential anti-war message that is always going to be relevant.
An epic movie.... Excellent sit on the edge of your seat movie...
One of those "they dont make them like they used to' movies!
Very Tense, very claustrophobic.... Excellent.. a must see! (BTW the book is excellent too! )
a very absorbing movie I am glad this is a movie about the human aspect of the war It shows how terrifying it can be
was like being in a nightmare re-run. guess that's what it was like in real life but quite boring
Brilliant movie, I've been hunting down the mini-series. I can highly recommend this to anyone who likes the war genre and if possible, watch the Special Features - really interesting to see how it was all made.
One of the "BEST" war movies I have "EVER" seen! A very long movie but kept me interested throughout. Wish the ending was different though, even though we were fighting the German's.
Very realistic movie. I felt as one of the crew cooped up in this steel tub. A bit drawn out though.
Absolutely fantastic. This movie is superb and has to be one the most powerful war movies ever made. Worth seeing and worth owning.
Long movie, qripping experience of being in a german sub, great watching it in English(dubbed)
The best war movie I've ever seen! Focuses on the psychological as well.
Maybe the best war (anti-war!) films ever.
What a special film of the triumph of the human spirit under extreme duress, short lived though it is.
This movie may be one of the best war films ever!
A bit long, but gripping stuff. WW2 from the German side.
Beautifully produced and the story-line is gripping from start to finish.
Seems very authentic to me, but then what would I know about U-boats in the Atlantic in WW2?
One of the most gripping movies I have ever seen
Good to have the German point of view of WW2, found this long movie well worth the time.
a great documentry of of brave men
Great War Movie, For once we get to see what Navy life was like on the other side.
Feels very Authentic
