Das Boot

This is a very good and realistic portrayal of a German U-boat in World War II. While I loved the movie, the Director’s Cut was a bit long for me. I rate it 8/10.

Das Boot is a movie about a German U-boat during World War II.

As a submarine movie, it is great. Unlike other movies, it is very realistic, showing the claustrophobic quarters and the close contact of crew in a submarine very well.

One issue I had with the movie is that it seemed a bit longer than it should have been. I looked at my watch a few times while watching it. I guess I would have been better off watching the theatrical version (2.5 hours) instead of the Director’s cut (3.5 hours) that I watched.

Oh and I really liked the ending.

I would rate Das Boot 8/10.

One thought on “Das Boot”

  1. A German, irony of ironies, once loaned me his Das Boot DVD. I found it to be quite an engaging movie, but for some reason, I do not recall watching all of it. Hmm…
