    U571 wants nothing more to be a suspenseful submarine thriller. And it succeeds

    sure none of it is accurate historically. It doesn't need to be. it's a throw back war film like the ones in the 50s . it's great fun.

    Pretty dang good. Found a great way to hold the suspense for the whole movie. Really good performances throughout. Can you really go wrong with McConaughey in a WW2, Nazi Submarine movie?

    These reviews are laughable. The biggest mess of a movie, completely inaccurate, crediting the US with cracking the enigma when the UK had done it before they even entered the war. A complete work of fiction.

    As submarine movies go, U-571 gets the job done - that is to say, it tells an engaging (albeit predictable) story and features several scenes of nail-biting suspense. All of the usual plot staples are in evidence: tension between crew members, deep diving where the hull threatens to collapse, dodging depth charges, and sub-to-sub battles. Director Jonathan Mostow should be commended for taking a thin script and crafting a compelling film out of it. U-571 doesn't hold together well upon reflection, but, while it's playing on screen, it works. All the actors are more than adequate and this film further brings forth the dilemma of whether a strong character is needed or a strong performer can suffice to let the plot take precedence. (Entertaining submarine film- not Das Boot but good).

    It's no Das Boot but by Hollywood standards not a bad effort. The tense atmosphere never lets up and the cast are fantastic.
