Das BootSet during World War II, the film tells the fictional story of U-96 and its crew. It depicts both the excitement of battle and the tedium of the fruitless hunt, and shows the submariners as ordinary individuals with a desire to do their best for their comrades and their country.

Critic Reviews of "Das Boot"VarietyFebruary 23, 2012
Everything described in the film is authentic.Chicago ReaderDecember 09, 2011
The film has no qualities beyond its formal polish.VarietyMarch 19, 2009
Agripping, impressively detailed account of one harrowing voyage by a German U-boat during World War II.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Petersen's shooting style displays a breathtaking, if impersonal and faintly academic, virtuosity comparable to that of Lean or Coppola.New York TimesAugust 30, 2004
Das Boot is yet another moving testament to the wastefulness of battle.Houston ChronicleFebruary 02, 2002
The film reaches right out to grab us by the neck and squeeze hard.Film4May 14, 2012
Still makes compulsive viewing.TV GuideDecember 09, 2011
Gripping and authentic.Empire MagazineSeptember 21, 2011
The execution is second to none; taut, claustrophobic and overwhelming.Groucho ReviewsJuly 25, 2011
Few war films are more potent than Das Boot...the ultimate submarine movie. [Blu-ray]ColeSmithey.comApril 24, 2009
It is unlike any other war film in that it confines the audience in a confined submarine where we digest the fear and panic of the human beings on screen. In short, "Das Boot" is a religious experience.Video-Reviewmaster.comFebruary 19, 2008
Just as good, some say better, than the original classic.
