* AdvertisedExtra: “Extra” is a bit of a stretch, but Jon Bon Jovi dies halfway through the movie offscreen after only about ten minutes of fairly insignificant screen time. However, marketing would have you believe he was the main character.

Added DiffLines:

* SpecialEffectsFailure: While the exterior sets and models for the modified ''S''-class sub and the Type-VII U-boats are decent enough, the film can’t seem to decide what class of destroyer they are facing, as that model switches between ''Narvik''- and ''Z-31''-class configurations between shots. Look for the forward guns flip-flopping between two single mounts and one twin mount.


* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The plot involves Americans seizing a German U-boat, which [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_submarine_U-505 really happened in 1944]] and could have been a compelling historical film.

* CausticCritic: According to the IMDb, A German U-boat commander's response was; "They got one thing right in the movie. There were U-Boats in the North Atlantic during the Second World War."

* HateDumb: The film never really even *tries* to pretend it's accurate, and the afterword gave due credit to those that actually captured German U-Boats. Most of the credit being to the British.
