U.S sub crew is sent to steal an Enigma encryption device from a disabled Nazi U-boat before the Germans can send help. When their own sub is sunk, the Americans, led by Lt. Tyler (McConaughey), take over the German sub and try to make their way back home through enemy destroyers. Long on loud and impressive action sequences, but short on characterization and good dialogue, this one'll work best for adrenalin junkies and those with theatre-quality entertainment systems.
