U-571 (2000) - Another in a long line of dreadful movies depicting fake Hollywood-style "history." Vastly inferior to "Das Boot" in every way, this ripoff almost reaches parody status. Worst of all, the movie SUBSTITUTES AMERICANS FOR BRITS. The British found and decoded Enigma. What a disgusting falsification of history. Avoid this travesty at all costs. This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen.
In 1943, the Navy submarine US Lionfish was inexplicably shut down: its commander, Tony Sterling, gone without a trace. Seventy years later, Sterling's grandson, professor Peter Williams, is recruited by a top-secret government agency to investigate. Aboard the Lionfish, Peter and his team uncover clues to the sub's cryptic past, and are plunged into a terrifying supernatural journey that will take them across the dark abyss of time, with history hanging in the balance.
Directed by John McTiernan. With Sean Connery, Alec Baldwin, Scott Glenn, Sam Neill. In November 1984, the Soviet Union's best submarine captain in their newest sub violates orders and heads for the USA. Is he trying to defect or to start a war?
