The plot: U.S. Navy Cmdr. Ernest Krause is assigned to lead an Allied convoy across the Atlantic during World War II. His convoy, however, is pursued by German U-boats. Although this is Krause’s first wartime mission, he finds himself embroiled in what would come to be known as the longest, largest and most complex naval battle in history: The Battle of the Atlantic.

This film was fine.

Pros: Tom Hanks performance was Good, I was amazed how they used certain scenes in different colours & this was a calm film for families to sit down to watch.

Cons: This film can get grim and difficult to sit through at times.

Casts & characters:

I recommend watching this film to those who subscribed to the AppleTV Plus subscription service and a fan of tom hanks other work.
