Without much charge and even less depth.

If watching a two-hour submarine movie is this nerve-shattering, imagine what the real thing must have been like.

Alas, it's a noisy, cliche-ridden, incomprehensible mess.

It's a simple pleasure watching an American movie that respects genre.

A very tense and exciting war movie.

[Both] a rousing action thriller...[and] near-parody of the rah-rah American military adventures that filled screens in the '40s and '50s. [Blu-Ray]

Delivers action scenes that are both visually dynamic and highly suspenseful.

This film has the effects and the performances to keep the thrill ride going non-stop.

(Mostow's) theme of what it takes to be a leader nearly breaks a surprisingly decent action film.

Sharply edited and vigorously directed and performed.
