Hmmm. I'm getting sick of Tom Hanks.This movie has potential.
The promo says it's based on a true story, but unfortunately I'm not familiar with the event it is supposed to be based on.
I certainly hope it's not full of promo bullshit on how the Americans made the crucial breakthrough in capturing the Enigma code machine used by the Germans in ww2 with their film U571.
U571 was never involved in the incident and I'm pretty sure the British had captured a Enigma machine a couple of years earlier.
Another point of contention was when they were being depth charged,they depicted the German destroyer using active sonar pings when the German Navy of the time only had passive radar..
In fact their was much more inaccuracies with the film,that IIMO, it was a bit of a insult to the men who participated in the event.
