Movie Info

In the psychological WW2 drama Torpedo Run, Glenn Ford plays submarine commander Barney Doyle, who is obsessed with sinking a particular Japanese aircraft carrier. Several months earlier, the carrier had escaped destruction by shielding itself with a POW transport ship, which was sunk by Doyle's torpedoes. The sunken transport had been carrying Doyle's wife and daughter, captured in the Philippines. This tragically unavoidable incident has transformed Doyle into a modern Ahab, mercilessly driving the men under him towards the single goal of blowing the hated enemy aircraft carrier out of the seas.

Audience Reviews for Torpedo Run

½

Torpedo Run holds up better better than most old submarine movies and appears to be technically more accurate than most. It's not up to the standard of Das Boot, but definitely worth watching.

Well produced war drama, nice cast, some tense moments but it is really formula stuff with a bigger than average budget.
