A film that draws immense power from its sense of claustrophobia and slowly escalating tension. The broader, political and social themes of WWII are ignored in favor of focusing on a group of men driven to the brink of physical and mental collapse. Everything translates so perfectly from screen to viewer; the tension, claustrophobia, and foreboding. An exhaustive film, in the best sense of the word, and a very rewarding one.

This is a military movie where you really get connected with the characters. Even though they're Germans, there's no talk about the master race or world domination or concentration camps -- just a bunch of young men trying to do a good job and stay alive. It's tense and thrilling, sometimes a little cheesy but never gets dull despite a 3 1/2 hour running time.

Four hours of pure tension; Petersen envelops the viewer in the dank, grungy submarine and makes us sympathize with the enemy, as we are able to see that these men, these soldiers are truly no different than any other sailor of any other nationality - they fight for their countries with pride and determination. The levels of intensity Petersen reaches at times are incredible.

Absolutely amazing. At times the tension simply becomes unbearable. Great use of the claustrophobic space in the ship with some fantastic tracking shots. Superb use of sound as well. The only nitpick is how obviously some of the scenes with the crew outside the ship were filmed on a set. Minor nitpicking of course. The final result is still 100% engaging, with a devastating end to top it all off.
