Submarine 707R - The Movie

The animation is outstanding; the submarines look exceptionally realistic, as do the underwater special effects. (Look for a great scene where the subs dodge in and out of a thermocline.) Colors are crisp and well defined, and the animation flows smoothly, without any skips or freeze-frame shots during action sequences. In the sound department, you have your choice of Dolby 5.1 English dub or Japanese with subtitles; the Japanese voice actors sound a bit better in their roles than the English, but the English track does a better job with ambient noise and the "atmosphere" of sound in a submarine. It's your preference as to which you like better.
All in all, "Submarine 707R" is a decent genre flick, in the spirit of "Silent Service" and "Run Silent Run Deep," and those who remember the first season of "seaQuest DSV" will find more than a few parallels. (Whether the captain of the UX makes a better Max Scully or Marilyn Stark is your call. :)) It's got amazing battle sequences, a decent premise, and a sprinkling of comedy - a little something for everyone. Cons include a few massive plot holes, a rather flat ending, and the transition from Part 1 to Part 2, which is somewhat jarring. However, if you like submarine adventure, you could do far worse than to spend your evening with the 707.

I have absolutely no complaints about the DVD as Amazon sold it to me. I wish they had made more episodes, but that's not Amazon's fault.Published 4 months ago by James
If you like submarines especially the old pig boats you will want to add the 707 to your collection. You rarely get to see it in the US.Published on April 29, 2014 by submariner

This is anime that is lots of fun to watch. While not logistically perfect, it has a lot of sound Submarine tactics and is a gas to watch. Worth a watch if not a purchase. Read morePublished on February 12, 2010 by Trunker21
