    I just watched it last night and was amazed. I can't think of anything more terrifying than being on a U-Boat that flooding and falling to the ocean floor.

    The video game Silent Hunter is a very realistic U-Boat simulator. It can be fun.

    I watched it on Netflix but I think I may have to invest in the Blu Ray.

    Side story. Filming of that movie had to be suspended because Steven Spielberg took that sub so he could use it in Raiders of the lost Ark.

    Me too...it takes it's time with the story and character development...and, technically brilliant, too.

    It really gives you that intense feeling of claustrophibia and panic of having the shit bombed out of you when you are a couple of hundred feet underwater.

    Depending on the sources, Germany lost between 700 to 778 U-boats during the war. Probably with a loss of 98% of the crews.
