Critic Reviews for Das Boot Season 1

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (13)

Submarine warfare is cramped, dirty, and dangerous even without enemy attacks, and Das Boot brings all the tension and frustrations to gritty life.

Everything's enhanced by the throbbing soundtrack, like something Bowie and Eno left behind in the vault at Hansa.

Feb 13, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This new version is hailing itself as a U-boat drama for the #MeToo generation.

Feb 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Each episode is like a shot of something very illegal to my arm. Played in more than one language, by an international cast, the miracle is, moreover, that it also allows you to feel vaguely hopeful about the future for whole minutes at a time.

Feb 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Slow and steady WWII drama aims for depth over flair.

Aug 14, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

With the focus constantly shifting between the characters and conflicts in all sections of the ship, this story is a constantly surprising and a thoroughly satisfying tour of duty.

Aug 12, 2019 | Full Review…

The budget is big, the scenery is immersive, and the acting is competent.

Jun 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Not a masterpiece like the original, but if you like war shows, it's a doozy.

Jun 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Both the movie and the series are drawn from Lothar-Günther Buchheim's 1973 novel - allowing "Das Boot" to broaden its action well beyond the U-boat.

Jul 9, 2019 | Full Review…

The narrative of Das Boot hews so slavishly to convention that one can basically game out the season by the end of episode three or four. And at that point, one has to ask: Why tell this story at all?

Audience Reviews for Das Boot: Season 1

    Great cast, fresh plot, fantastic costumes. I am claustrophobic already. No wonder why Winston Churchill feared the "U-boot" more than anything else.

    Das Boot manages to be a war story, a thriller and a love story all at once, as it takes nuanced looks at complicated relationships throughout. International series are not for everybody, particularly those who don't want to bother with subtitles, but Das Boot not only mixes that up rather cleverly but is just a flat-out entertaining, well-told drama that's filled with surprises. Das Boot possesses the atmospheric pressure of its cinematic forebear while adding new depth to its compelling ensemble, making for a riveting international production.

    Really liked the atmosphere more than the plot. It is more of a period piece about life in occupied France in some ways. Liked the French and German language with sub-titles, Interesting characters and scenes. If you like foreign films this won't disappoint.

    It should be re-titled "Das Bullshit" or "Lesbian Love in the French Resistance."
  • Jun 22, 2019
    Unlike the gritty realistic original series, this modern, politically correct, technically inaccurate, history revisionist, pulp nonsense has a plot so full of holes that it should have remained submerged..
