Critic Reviews for Action in the North Atlantic
Bogart makes this WWII salute to the Merchant Marine more enjoyable than it has the right to be.
Audience Reviews for Action in the North Atlantic
Action in the North Atlantic from 1943 Has a terrific fire sequence fairly early on in the film once a German sub sinks a American cargo ship headed for England with oil and other supplies. German sub rams life raft row boat after crew escapes oil. Navy Rescues crew of sunk cargo ship after 11 days. Humphrey Bogart has a tooth ace. Canada Novaschoshia convoy meet with an international convoy of allies. Absolute radio silence is made. There are no subtitles for the Germans or other foreign nations represented in this film. This film is filled with sub, boat, and airplane battles with mostly convincing model fight scenes. This film is filled with all kinds of sea battle tactics. What I like is that there is not much romance in film which I don't really care for anyways.
Action is right! Plenty of it in this WWII drama about the Merchant Marines. Bogart and Massey shine as does the supporting cast. Exciting, touching and patriotic.
Bogart's always cool, and there's a really awesome action scene about halfway through the movie with plenty of Merchant Marine vessels and German U-Boats going kaboom. The movie isn't tremendous, but it is competent enough to keep your attention.
