William H. Macy stars as the Chief of the Boat (COB) of USS Swordfish. Swordfish, out on patrol in WWII, has its crew fall under meningitis. In a fight with a German U-boat, Swordfish is mostly destroyed and the crew abandons at sea only to be picked up by the same U-boat (U-429) who took her under.
The XO (Second in Command) of Swordfish had the disease and owing to an order from the new, young CO, was required to status his watch station during battle. Subsequently, he passed the meningitis on to other members of the crew. Being taking aboard 429, the sick crewmen eventually pass it on to the German sailors.
The real story is how the two crews eventually had to work with each other in order to stay alive. Macy's character is a realist. He wants his crew to survive and the only way to do so it through cooperation.
This is a very well acted movie on all parts. The Germans who tolerate the Americans as well as the Germans who do not. That goes equally for the Americans who tolerate the Germans and those who do not. They are all believable.
I won't summarize the plot, since that's already been done well by others, except to mention that while it sounds like the American submarine commander (Scott Caan) was entirely at fault for the spread of meningitis, actually it was already spreading. Scott Caan's character wasn't kind about it, but it would have spread throughout the crew(s) in any case. Crowded quarters, and the first crewman to catch it hid his symptoms until it was too late to contain it.
I can't compare this movie to other WWII submarine movies since I have seen so few. I watched this movie for only two reasons: Scott Caan is in it (I'm a huge admirer of his work on the Hawaii Five-0 TV series) and the plot sounded compelling. I wasn't familiar with any of the other stars in this movie, but that's no reflection on their quality, only that I don't watch very many movies and TV shows. The quality of the acting was superb, especially William Macy as the American Chief of Boat and the German captain and first officer. Marvelous acting! Scott Caan was excellent, too, though his role was smaller than I expected. He is more than good enough to be a leading man of a movie or TV series, but he didn't get to show his very best work because I feel that the most meaty part of the movie began once the German and American crews had to start working together, and Scott Caan's character was barely involved by then.
I don't see this as an anti-war movie, or a criticism of American culture or values. It's a character study, and asks you to think about motivations, personal integrity, decency, mercy, hope... The only real "bad guys" in this movie were those crew members who were never willing to stop hating and start recognizing each other as fellow human beings instead of just "German" or "American" chess pieces. War is very peculiar in that when you haven't personally met the enemy and it's necessary to do battle, you have to do your job even if it means killing. But once you meet each other as people and for whatever reason you don't have to fight anymore, you might actually become friends, which is what happens at the end between the American Chief of Boat (William Macy) and the German first officer.
Others have written here that they see this as a highly ideological film, a pacificist statement with a degree of nazi apologism. I don't think the script or film-makers have shown themselves to be smart enough to pull such a thing off. If you want moral complexity in your films set in Nazi Germany, there are so many better examples (hint: watch *recent* German-language films.) If you want conflicted motives in your portrayals of WWII Allied heroes, well you might be looking a long while in Hollywood-made films, but you could try French or British cinema.
is destroyed. The Germans and Amercans must work together after an meningitis affects both crews.
Excellent acting a little far fetched but very entertaining. Well worth the price if you likeWWII stuff.
