ITEM#: 2384627Faithful to the conventions of the World War II genre, Mostow's (BREAKDOWN) submarine thriller pays earnest homage to the pluck and determination of ordinary people forced to overcome extraordinary odds. The mostly young and inexperienced crew of the S-33 is deployed on a top secret, high-priority mission to intercept a disabled German u-boat (the titular U-571) and capture the ship's encryption system--the Enigma--in order to crack the Nazi's communication codes and hasten an allied victory in the North Atlantic. Racing against a German rescue effort, the S-33 stages a daring raid on the U-571. But after capturing the U-571, the Americans find themselves its prisoner as they must pilot the leaky, disabled vessel through hostile enemy waters. McConaughey (EDTV, DAZED AND CONFUSED) leads a strong cast (Keitel - HOLY SMOKE, Paxton - A SIMPLE PLAN) in this fast-paced, tense, submarine adventure.

This one is definately one of the greats. U-571 is a good, old-fashioned submarine tale set in WWII. The plot is great and right on line with what actually went on beneath the seas. It had great action scenes and kept you guessing until the end. This ones definately for the guy who likes to watch a movie and be so in-tuned that he is oblivious to everything else. It carried a great cast and was a real crowd pleaser!Read More
