Remarkable! No matter how many depth charges were dropped, or how deep they went, the submarine still remained afloat after all the chaos it went through and wouldn't go down without a fight. I am a history buff and that is one of the reasons why I like this movie a lot. From what I've read, I can tell it's based on three Nazi u boats from World War 2, U-110, U-505, and U-570.
On what should be a routine rescue mission during World War II, the submarine USS Tiger Shark picks up three survivors of a U- boat attack. But for the crew -- trapped together in the sub's narrow corridors and constricted spaces -- the unexpected visitors seem to spark a series of chilling, otherworldly occurrences! Starring Hollywood favorites Olivia Williams (THE SIXTH SENSE, THE POSTMAN), Bruce Greenwood (THIRTEEN DAYS, DOUBLE JEAPOARD), and Matt Davis (LEGALLY BLONDE, BLUE CRUSH).
The Enemy Below is an even-handed study of submarine warfare (during WWII) from the vantage point of both sides. The captain of an American destroyer, despite having lost his family in the war, endeavors to let his head rule his heart in combat. He encounters a German U-boat commander as honorable and compassionate as himself. The two men develop a grudging respect for one another as they pursue one another throughout the North Atlantic. Both vessels are destroyed; several days after the battle, the two men meet one another face to face for the first time, and chivalrously exchange salutes.
In the midst of a global crisis, the USS Alabama receives an unconfirmed order to launch its nuclear missiles -- signaling the start of Word War III. The tension quickly rises as the sub's respected commander (Gene Hackman) and his brilliant executive officer (Denzel Washington) clash over the validity of their orders ... battling each other for control of the sub. As this epic struggle rages under the sea, CRIMSON TIDE brings motion picture excitement to a new level -- and you to the edge of your seat.
At the height of Hitler's notorious U-boat war, the crew of the U.S.S. Swordfish is taken prisoner in a battle with a German submarine. However, meningitis strikes more than half of the German crew, and there aren't enough Germans to run the submarine. Avoiding both the contagion and POW protocol, crewmembers and prisoners alike must work together to survive. It isn't until a U.S. carrier locates the ship that the men aboard the U-boat are put to the ultimate test of will and survival.
