Das Boot (The Boat) is a graphic and gripping tale that follows the daring patrol of U-96, one of the famed German U-Boats known as 'The Grey Wolves'. Prowling the North Atlantic, they challenged the British Navy at every turn. The crew aboard the U-96 is portrayed in a desperate life-and-death struggle, coping with endless hours of claustrophobic boredom at sea, which quickly gives way to terror when confronting the enemy. Relentlessly under attack, the U-96 is forced to unheard of depths, the creaking hull threatening to collapse and crush the panicked sailors. Orinignally nominated for six Academy Awards - Best Picture, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Sound Effects, Best Editing and Best Screenplay Adaptation, The Director's Cut includes over one hour of additional footage and delivers an amazingly realistic account of Germany's Elite U-boat crewmen, placing the viewer at the heart of the ship's appalling conditions.

Das Boot is a great anti-war movie, It shows the futility and pointlessness of war, the tragic loss of life, the mistaken ideology of patriotism. A film portraying the harsh cruel and brutal facts of armed conflict. Well made and pulling no punches a vivid testament of mans cruelty to man.
One of the greatest War movies in the most beautiful form, Blu-ray! Feel the fear, excitement and action in the best way possible! It also comes with great extras on an extra disc.
Excellent film, sound and picture brilliant.
I purchased this disc having partly watched the original series when it was first shown in the eighties.I am the type of person who finds movies last too long and tend to watch a film in stages, however I watched this film (all three and a half hours of it) all the way through with only an occasional pause for coffee. I will not go into the storyline as you probably are familiar with it. I really cannot recommend this disc highly enough it is a gripping tale from start to finish, I could not help but empathise with these german submariners. If I was nitpicking I could say the picture quality is a little grainy at times but this does not detract from what is truly a cinematic masterpiece. For anyone with even the slightest interest in films of this ilk buy this I am sure you will not be disappointed.
Still the best Submarine War Movies ever made !!!, now even better in Blue Ray!!
Undoubtedly the best WW11 movie ever made and now with a deservedly excellent bluray transfer providing first class hi-def graphics with a superb audio soundtrack. You won`t be disappointed-just BUY IT!!!!!!
