December 29, 2010
A very tense and exciting war movie.
August 20, 2008
[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]
August 7, 2008
Delivers action scenes that are both visually dynamic and highly suspenseful.
July 21, 2005
It's a wham-bam bumpy ride, great fun in the old-fashioned war movie tradition.
April 9, 2005
A top-notch, high quality actioner that is destined to hit its male-oriented, testosterone-driven demographic and make a pile of money in the process.
September 27, 2003
It's really hard to go wrong with a submarine war movie.

This film has the effects and the performances to keep the thrill ride going non-stop.
December 8, 2002
(Mostow's) theme of what it takes to be a leader nearly breaks a surprisingly decent action film.
December 2, 2002
Sharply edited and vigorously directed and performed.
November 7, 2002
U-571 superbly mixes classic touches and brand-new thrills.

If you're in the mood to cheer the white hats, you'll probably like this film.
October 15, 2002
A well-crafted, old-fashioned war movie.
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.
August 12, 2002
[The] skillful execution is enough to overcome some of the film's weaker aspects.
August 2, 2002
Get a good night's rest and take plenty of vitamins before seeing 'U-571.' Otherwise, you'll be wiped out by the end of this superb action thriller.
June 18, 2002
If watching a two-hour submarine movie is this nerve-shattering, imagine what the real thing must have been like.
June 5, 2002
A smart, slick crowd-pleaser perfectly pitched to kick off the summer movie season.
December 10, 2001
It's essentially just a bit of entertaining, thrilling, heroic fluff.
