Critic Reviews for Das Boot Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

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

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

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.

Although it takes a bit of getting used to switching between the subtitles for the French and German portions and the smattering of English on display, Das Boot certainly delivers on drama and tension.

For all that, if you can forget the original, this is (eventually) a galloping good watch - three episodes in, it improves immensely and one starts to care. But that's a big "if".

It didn't shut out quite enough light and air, but it went just deep enough.

Feb 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Thrills and chills a-plenty in store, it would seem.

Feb 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This series, coy as it may be about its status as a reboot, is an extremely capable addition to the canon.

Feb 12, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's gritty and European and there's shocking violence and many a blokey, navy joke that likely wouldn't make the final edit in some series. But it's also well scripted and beautifully filmed.

Feb 12, 2019 | Full Review…

It's German, anyway, and it's a series, and the first ten minutes of the first episode are up there with the most thrilling depictions of submarine warfare you will see. Although then things slow down a tad.
