An absorbing account of the trials and tribulations that beset the crew of the H.L Hunley. A strong cast and dynamic direction vibrates throughout this film. Strangely enough, this film left me emotional as each actor vividly brings the characters to life and the screenplay is taunt with tension.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

An excellent dramatic treatment of one of the largely unknown episodes of the Civil War. Even more topical now that the real C.S.S. Hunley has just been raised off the coast of Charleston, this movie tells the story of the last-ditch attempt by the Confederacy to break the crippling Union blockade and the lengths to which her crew would go to see the constricting band of Union warships destroyed. John Gray's superb script and direction take centerstage here, brought to life by an outstanding cast led by Armand Assante (delivering one of his strongest performances). Of particular interest is this relatively rare portrayal of the almost apocolyptic destruction wreaked upon the cities of the South (not including the over-the-top burning of Atlanta presented in technicolor oversaturation in ''Gone with the Wind''). If you enjoy this movie, try also John Gray's adaptation of ''The Day Lincoln Was Shot'' with Lance Henriksen in very powerful performance as the assassinated president.Was this review helpful?
