Plot outline: In the midst of World War II, the battle below the seas rages. The Nazi's have the upper edge as the Allies are unable to crack their war codes. That is, until a wrecked U-boat sends out an SOS signal, and the Allies realise this is their chance to seize the 'enigma coding machine'. But masquerading as Nazi's and taking over the U-boat is the smallest of their problems. The action really begins when they get stranded on the U-boat. Summary written by Filmtwob {webmaster@filmfreak.co.za} In the battle front of espionage and code cracking of World War II, there remains but one task on the Allied agenda: the capture of a German "Enigma" machine which will allow the Allied naval forces to locate and track submerged German U-Boat submarines. When one such German vessel breaks down after a battle with British forces, a secret mission is dispatched to take over the U-Boat by commando American forces and retrieve an Enigma machine intact. The raid goes well, at first, yet following the destruction of the American mothership and the arrival of reenforcement German ships, the Americans trapped on the U-Boat must use their training and wits to pilot U-571 in order to save their lives.

Comment: Very good submarine flick. Twisted portrayal of history. In 1942, German U-Boats dominate the North Atlantic and sink Allied supply ships at will. A special mission is designed for an American submarine to disguise itself and crew as German in order to capture a German Code machine. The Enigma Code was very crucial in the Nazi naval war effort. This movie is an action packed two hours. The tension runs high. And the suspense is hard and rampant. The characters earn your concern for their survival. A very talented and hard working cast that features Matthew McConaughey and a sharp and surprising effort from Jon Bon Jovi. (Yes, the singer). Also turning in very fine performances are Bill Paxton, Harvey Keitel, David Keith and Erik Palladino.
