Unmitigated brilliance. Every frame, every word, every 'ping' is something that will burrow deep into your psyche.

Finds itself current again as a metaphor for a great industrial country led blindly into a prolonged war to no good, understandable end but for the dealing of death in an alien place.

You're drawn in powerfully as the crew members experience a psychologically maddening cycle of lull and storm.

Petersen says his vision for the film was, 'to show the gritty and terrible reality of war AND to combine it with a highly entertaining story and fast-paced action style that would pull audiences into the experience of these young men.' He succeeds.

Set in a German U- boat during World War II, this claustrophobic suspense drama hasn't a weak bolt anywhere.

Suspenseful when it needs to be and intelligent in its depiction of the horrors of war and the sweaty claustrophobia of submarine life. On occasion, it's even -- pardon the pun -- deep.

This film takes all of the drama and suspense inherent in a submarine-based story and delivers it in a near- perfect package, establishing Das Boot as not just a terrific adrenaline rush, but one of the best movies ever made.
