...typical of John Wayne's war films: heroic, nationalistic, patriotic, sentimental, and hokey.

Emanuel Levy

The most interesting element of this typical John Wayne WWII picture is his relationship with his former wife, played by the estimable Patricia Neal.

Routine WW II submarine film that's lengthy and short on action but long on romance.

One of my favorite WWII dramas.
Dean McKenna
Action, suspense, comedy and romance are nicely mixed in this fact-based film about the rush to perfect American torpedoes during World War II.
