Everything Das Boot Wasn't! U-571 Rocks!!

I was pleasantly surprised by U-571. So much so that I personally thought it was a better made film overall compared to Das Boot. Das Boot seems excessively slow and choppy in terms of pacing. U-571 took every element of Das Boot and just made it better and cooler. I prefer this over Das Boot! Please check this film out if your into WWII films or liked Das Boot, you won't be disappointed!

Historical?

Apparently everyone who reviewed this movie expected to see a historically accurate movie in every respect. Nowhere did the makers say it was an accurate portrayal of an actual event on any particular U Boat or any actual patrol. The film was made in the USA to make money, not be a historically 100% accurate film about any Nazi U boat. As far as whether the US Navy ever captured a U boat, yes they did on June 4, 1944. They arrested the crew and got the enigma machine which was sent to Bletchley Park England. The boat U 505 was then towed the boat to Bermuda. It now sits in Chicago at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry. The US under the Lend-Lease Program gave the United Kingdom $31.4 billion (equivalent to $427 billion today) during WW 2. I guess that was a mistake according to most respondants here I see. Perhaps the US should have stayed out of Europe and let France and England defeat Hitler by themselves while we took on Japan.

The Sound Design is What Makes This Movie

I remember seeing this in the theatre when it first came out. The sound design is what stood out the most, and still stands out today. I can "listen" to this movie over and over again. The DVD version I saw recently has commentary by director Jonathan Mostow. In it he talks about the value of having theatre-style "6-channel surround format (at home) because it really replicates, as close as possible, the experience of seeing a movie in the theatre."

I like watching "older" movies and listening to director commentary, especially when they get technical. Mostow, in his commentary, goes on to say how "with the film to tape transfers now-a-days you can really extract a tremendous amount of visual information out of each frame." (!) "Film to tape."

Film, to tape, to glass master DVD, to DVD replication. Ah yes, the turn of the century technology a mere 17 years ago!

Imagine, 17 years from now, we'll be mocking 4K UHD when we're sitting at home watching our favourite new-release film with some sort of organic-holographic-display-thing that looks so real it will seem like the actors are right in front of you and you can reach out and touch them; with sound so authentic you'd believe you were right there, with them, in the action. OK, maybe not 17 years, but perhaps 20.
