Without much charge and even less depth.
December 6, 2005

September 23, 2002
A sweaty, claustrophobic potboiler that at its heart is not so much an action adventure movie as it is a suspenseful, triumph-of-the-human-spirit-type story.

When it's good, U-571 is tense and action-packed. But it's not good often enough or for long enough to distract you from its problems.
