    I think what director Wolfgang Petersen successfully achieved the most was making the audience feel as if they were on the boat themselves. Even just by looking at the actors in a confined space, I felt like I was experiencing claustrophobia. It's not just a war epic, there are moments in the film that moves the audience in a profound way: spoiler, those moments make you empathize the characters even more. Highly recommend others to watch the director's cut, it does the movie justice. 7 years 1 month ago

    i don't understand what people mean by boring - i can't take my eyes away from it! it's incredibly exciting, both in its action sequences and in the quiet moments! the music is so eerie too. 9 years 2 months ago
