U-571 (2000 U.S. FRANCE) D/W: JONATHAN MOSTOW W: SAM MONTGOMERY/DAVID AYER P: DINO and MARTHA DE LAURENTIIS
I was surprised that this big-budget thriller about an American submarine crew ending up inside a German sub while trying to capture a decoding machine was real tense and exciting. The U.K. Prime Minister at the time (Tony Blair) complained that in real-life the crew were British. He should have concentratde on fixing his country`s fucked-up economy rather than moaning about little things, and then maybe we could also crank out quality, expensive B flicks like this. With Matthew McConaughey, Bill Paxton, Harvey Keitel, Jon Bon Jovi, David Keith, Thomas Kretschmann, Will Estes, Jake Weber, Erik Palladino, Matthew Settle, Robin Askwith (hooray!), Martin Glade and big Dino himself.
