Review

Our Score
Spencer Gordon Bennet was a stuntman who acted in silent movies and became a prolific director of movie serials. Towards the end of his career, he made cheap B features, which to nobody's surprise closely resembled the serial format, with shoddy sets, hackneyed plots and casts of unknowns and has-beens. Equally unsurprisingly, such trashy tales now have a cult following, and this feeble war drama is no exception. Unfortunately, unlike Bennet's genuinely batty Atomic Submarine, which was filmed on the same sets - sorry, set - this has little to recommend it.

Summary

The crew of a submarine become angered by their new commander's lack of leadership experience and reluctance to attack nearby Japanese warships. Second World War drama, starring John Bentley, Brett Halsey and Wayne Heffley.
