a good British movie
½ December 29, 2010
Good but rather stiff British WWII film about British midget submarines sinking the German battleship "Tirpitz". It was good, but the film kept making me think of the Anglo-Zulu War scene in "Monty Python's The Meaning of Life". I guess I just prefer the tough talking American sub captains like Robert Mitchum or Clark Gable in "The Enemy Below" or "Run Silent, Run Deep".

Solid bw WWII fodder...Mills dials it in, Sinden is the least nasal you'll ever hear him and the comedy Nazis are great.

Bit of an odd movie here, about the British trying out some new technologies to try to get at the Germans during WWII. They have Mini Submarines and manned torpedoes! We see a group of British Navy training to use these and then going on a mission to sink a German ship. Not as exciting as it sounds, it's actually on the dull side of things, with a very very very odd conclusion. Yay Germans win!

A good old fashioned British war movie where they have tried to get as near to the truth as they possibly could. The actual raid is actually quite gripping drama as the viewer is wondering if the raid will actually succeed!! But the effects are a bit dated but that doesn't stop the film from being dramatic!!

John Mills is quite good in the role of the Commander and there is an equally good supporting cast especially Michael Medwin as the lively and humerous Cockney

Stirring British derring-do - based on true events during WW2. Still enjoyably told, if obviously dated - a classic British war flick!

A true story given the post war hero treatment. A dated but entertaining tale in British movie history.

Considering its age a surprisingly gripping film as you wait to find out who will and who won't fulfill their mission and make it back to good old blighty. John Mills is good as ever and the supporting cast including a young Donald Sinden perform well.

Dated, uninspiring stuff. Surely if they were torpedoing the Tirpitz they might find at least one submarine that worked.
