Sink the Bismarck!
A true WW2 story: the British Navy must find and destroy a powerful German warship.Chronicles the breakout of the Bismarck during the early days of World War Two. Seen both from the point of view of the many naval vessels on both sides and from the central headquarters of the British where the search for the super battleship was controlled.
Well shot, well crafted WW2 naval thriller. It's very British (which isn't always good) but it's a nice, classical sorta movie. The black and white photography is really nice. The director, Lewis Gilbert, went on to direct "Alfie" and three Bond films, "You Only Live Twice", "The Spy Who Loved Me" and Moonraker".
Filme simpático. Afinal de contas, toda a gente gosta de ver os alemães a levar na boca.
"Sink The Bismarck! was an interesting account of the Battle of the Denmark Strait and subsequent sinking of the Bismarck. The film was let down by one-dimensional characters who were in some cases very obvious caricatures (for instance Admiral Günther Lütjens wasn't the rabid Nazi portrayed here) and 'over-explaining' where people told each other things (for our benefit) that wouldn't have been said at the time."
