Overview

After several months' heavy war duty, the crew of the British submarine Sea Tiger is enjoying a much-deserved leave, when suddenly they're called back to active duty. Sub commander John Mills has been ordered to pursue and sink the formidable German battleship Brandenburg. A series of nailbiting seaborne perils, each one more life-threatening than the last, awaits the Sea Tiger as Mills endeavors to carry out his orders. Setting the British We Dive at Dawn apart from the usual Hollywood submarine epic is the fact that all the characters-include the senior officers-are between the ages of 19 and 23; There's no room for an "old sea dog" Alan Hale or Charles Bickford in this one. Though modestly produced, We Dive at Dawn offers a million dollars (or a million pounds)' worth of pulse-pounding excitement.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
A ripping good war film, We Dive at Dawn is a "must see" for those who relish submarine-based movies. Like many of these films, there's a certain formula that is adhered to -- introduce the fairly large ensemble, get to know them as basic types, pack them into the sub and start off on the mission. In some hands, this formula can lead to predictability and boredom, but Dive for the most part avoids this. True, the characters are essentially types, but the director and writers have added enough detail and nuance to make them stand out as more human. Director Anthony Asquith also seems to be fascinated by the mere workings of a submarine, and his attention to detail here adds energy to the depiction of typical life aboard the boat. These men are professionals, but -- unlike in a Hollywood movie -- they are not superhuman; they make mistakes, they misjudge, they do their best but sometimes their best may not be what is required. Asquith and his writers are aided enormously by a first rate cast, with special kudos due to Eric Portman and John Mills. Portman is excellent throughout, but especially in the climax, as he goes undercover to save the sub. And Mills, who could have played this part in his sleep, keeps things fresh and new. Dive has tension, excitement, and top drawer acting, writing and direction -- a classic of its kind.
