Do? That movie will generate the dreaded *faceskullheaddeskfloorcombo*
'tis not as bad as watching Das Boat in English just after watching the original 293 minute version in German (with English subs).
I don't see how people can stand the English dubbed version.
Speak of the devil! I watched the 293 minute subtitled version last night!
Why anyone would want to watch an english dubbed movie that is set on a GERMAN Unterseeboot in WWII, I will never know. Maybe they're the same people who enjoyed U-571...

Great movie is it not. I got the English version for the sake of seeing what scenes they cut out to get it down to 209minutes.
My favourite scene would have to be near the end, when they get the engines running and it shows an outside shot of the U-Boat in the water and the captain is yelling out. Well it's actually two scenes (the engine room and the outside shot) but I still love it.
Closely followed by the first Tipperary song they sing, and the captain says 'Den Tipperary-Song, wenn ich bitten darf'
, which means 'The Tipperary song, if you have no objections'
. And then they all start laughing, it's great.
Yes, the engine room scenes were pure hardcore pornography for an antique engine freak such as myself
Nothing like two straight-six MAN (Maschinenfabrik Augsburg Nuremburg) diesels running at 250 RPM.
(right after they manage to get the starboard diesel to start on what little air they have left)
"I think it's running."
"Who says you can't make something out of nothing?!"
That and the lines that the captain shouts once they get underway are just about my favorites out of the entire movie.
"They're all asleep in their bunks... They're all in the casinos, celebrating our sinking!"
