Fun for What It Is,

This review is from: U-571 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
U-571 is a non-historically accurate movie about a group of Americans who commandeer a Nazi U-Boat. Not everything goes according to plan, of course, and soon Matthew Mcconaughey and his buddies are scrambling and fighting for their lives. It's fast and intense, with fantastic set design and awesome sound. Make sure to turn your soundsystem up loud. You really feel at times as if your living room couch has become a claustrophobic, cramped vessel far below the sea. If this sounds cool to you, and you're not a stickler for historical accuracy, then U-571 should entertain you. Don't expect any unexpected character design or the most original plot of all time, but it's fun enough.
