Top 20 Best War Movies Of All Time for Action Movies Lovers

Das Boot

Das Boot Movie Screencaps

This 1981 German film tells the story of a fictional German submarine and its crew. The movie shows the terrible conditions and circumstances that the German soldiers have to endure during World War II.

It brilliantly evokes the claustrophobia and clamor of undersea battle as the story takes place deep below the surface of the ocean, in a submarine known as German U-boat which patrols the Atlantic Ocean during World War II.

The entire picture of the life in the submarine has been shown through a war correspondent named Werner, played by Herbert Gronemeyer. Jurgen Prochnow gives a spectacular performance as the German U-Boat  Captain. He struggles to maintain his own motivation as he attempts to keep the ship’s morale up in the face of fierce battles, intense storms, and dwindling supplies.

At times, the movie grows slow and drawn out but that is intentional to make you feel like you are trapped underwater with nothing to do and nowhere to go.

Although this movie didn’t get any distinct recognition as a war film, many who have actually watched the movie glorify it as a perfect depiction of the intense and harsh life of soldiers during the World War.
