Das Boot (1981)


Director: Wolfgang Petersen
Starring: Jürgen Prochnow, Herbert Grönemeyer, Klaus Wennemann and Hubertus Bengsch


It is 1942 and the German submarine fleet is heavily engaged in the so called "Battle of the Atlantic" to harass and destroy English shipping. With better escorts of the Destroyer Class, however, German U-Boats have begun to take heavy losses.

"Das Boot" is the story of one such U-Boat crew, with the film examining how these submariners maintained their professionalism as soldiers, attempted to accomplish impossible missions, while all the time attempting to understand and obey the ideology of the government under which they served.

The Abyss (1989)


Director: James Cameron
Starring: Ed Harris, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Michael Biehn and Leo Burmester


When an American nuclear submarine crashes, the United States Government believes the Russians to be responsible. They enlist the help of a team of underwater drilling platform workers who are to help the deployed Navy SEALS locate the crash site. As they get closer to their destination, the friction between the two teams increases.

When some workers report seeing UFOs underwater, the SEALS grow increasingly suspicious and suspect a Russian mini-sub. After a series of near-fatal disasters, the workers find that they are the only people who are capable of stopping World War III. But they are not the only inhabitants of the deep, and strange things are happening back at the surface.

Captain Marko Ramius, a dissatisfied Russian commander, navigates his submarine towards America in an attempt to defect. Soviet intelligence claims that Ramius has gone insane and that he plans to launch nuclear missiles at the United States. Jack Ryan, an analyst at the CIA, believes otherwise: American spies have determined that the submarine is powered by a stealth engine. In order to save the "caterpillar drive" and avoid a nuclear incident, Agent Ryan must board the Red October and assist Captain Ramius in its navigation to U.S. waters.
