A U.S. Navy captain and his crew are just beginning to enjoy 48 hours of leave when they receive word to immediately return to duty. On a top-secret assignment, they must disguise themselves as Nazis and infiltrate a severely damaged Nazi U-boat. Once on board, they are to steal the Nazi’s top-secret decoding device and sink the sub before the Germans catch on to what’s really happening. Their mission is more dangerous and frightening than anything they could have ever imagined, but one which has the power to turn the tide of battle.

“U-571 is exciting!” says Newsweek. Filled with incredible explosions, raging fires and speeding torpedoes, this suspense-filled, action-packed film sets a new standard for high-impact entertainment and features an impressive all-star cast.

 Insult to WW2 history

| | See all gray11's reviews (7)

This film is a sham and alters the story of how the British got the enigma machine and helped turn the tide of WW2. It also replaces the true story of British with the USA being the ones who are the heros, just typical of them.
Don't buy lies!

 Someone's re-writing history again!

Shamefully, shamefully changes the true story of the British capturing the Engima machine at all costs replacing it with the US Navy! Awful...but I suppose if you can stomach that then this is pretty watchable, I however will not watch again, if you want a brilliant WW2 submarine film then save your money and buy Das Boot!

Although i agree with what was said about this film that it takes the true story of how britain risked everything to get the enigma. This film is absolutely superb full of high octane packed action, explosions and death defying stunts. If you liked full metal jacket, three kings etc you will love this film.

 Great Movie

| | See all Wildcat25's reviews (3)

It's a great entertaining action film, despite it being fictional. Never a dull moment from start to finish. It's loosely based on the capture of the U-110 by the British in 1940, and does mention this at the end of the film. If you can put the facts to the one side then this is a good movie.

 STORY BLUDGEONED BY HOLLYWOOD

If you can get your head around the fact the whole film is a shameful attempt at re-writing history then you will probably enjoy it. For those who don't know this film is based on the Enigma machines captured from German U-Boats during WWII. In reality this was done by the Royal Navy, however it has been given the Hollywood makeover and the Brits are replaced by US Navy sailors. A complete insult to say the least!!! It's a shame really because they didn't need to change any of the story and the rest of the film is actually quite good, plenty of action & suspense. But it's never really going to convince the doubters with such a blatant "two fingered" salute to the REAL heroes!!! Das Boot is much better!!
