One of the greatest war movies. Almost flawless. ***½ out of ****

Impressively made and powerfully themed WW2 story following the captain and crew of the Compass Rose, escorting allied convoys in waters patrolled by U-boats. Jack Hawkins gives a brilliant performance as Cmd. Ericson, leading a largely inexperienced crew against impossible odds, and who has his nerves rattled in some incredibly tense and surprisingly dark scenes. He is ably supported by a cast including Donald Sinden and Denholm Elliott. Certainly one of the pinnacles of British war movies, shorn as it is of all sentimentality and propaganda.
