A., CBS Fox Video., Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation., United States., Navy., United States., Department of Defense., PB CBS/Fox Video PP New York YR 1990 AB Drama about two ship captains stalking each other in the South Atlantic during World War II. When an American destroyer detects a German U-boat prowling beneath the surface, its captain (Mitchum) immediately pursues the enemy. The Sub's commander (Jurgens) is a wily veteran who uses ingenious evasive tactics while angling for position to torpedo the destroyer. As both men try to outwit each other, the chase becomes a deadly game of cat and mouse in which any mistake can bring defeat and death. Alternating between both ships and their crews, the film offers an impartial view of war that portrays the American and German captains as professional soldiers who respect each other's abilities. Gripping tale of two men who are determined not to sacrifice their dignity or honor even though duty demands that they must destroy each other. Not rated.
