As Hitler's grip of fear continues to tighten during World War II, the capture of the U.S.S. Swordfish by a German U-boat leads to a brutal struggle for survival between axis and allies deep beneath the ocean surface. Following the capture of the U.S.S. Swordfish, the German crew soon begins to fall ill to a particularly powerful strain of meningitis, leaving the American prisoners-of-war obligated to work with the remaining German crew to keep the vessel from descending to the bottom of the ocean. Though they are able to cast aside their differences in the name of survival, the discovery that the ship has been located by a U.S. carrier forces the prisoners into a harrowing struggle for survival. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
In Enemy Hands was a waste of time. I am an ex-submariner, so I am a bit critical of all sub movies. Few sub movies are acurate when depicting the interior of a sub; they'd have a hard time filming how tight the surroundings really are. But, In Enemy Hands, was beyond stupid and low budget. Add that to an extremly lame and contrived plot and you end up with a total waste of time.
DAS Boot is the movie to watch if you want to get the feel of how tight and cramped a sub really is.
Completely unbelievable plot, poorly cast, that takes elements from every submarine movie ever made (Das Boot meets Crimson Tide). No suspense, and no characters that you really care about. Real Hollywood cliched trash.
