Product Description

Special Features

The original DVD release for Das Boot featured a fabulous digitally remastered Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. In addition, that DVD included one of the more informative director commentaries and making-of documentaries yet. The only complaint was that the movie was so long that it was spread over two sides, and the viewer had to get up to flip the disc over halfway through. This Superbit version won't remove the inconvenience of getting up off the sofa; it spreads the movie across two separate DVDs. However, the picture is slightly less noisy, something that will only be noticeable on larger screens with high quality A/V equipment due to the already murky, shadowy cinematography inside the submarine. The Superbit version of the movie has both a Dolby Digital 5.1 and a new DTS 5.1 mix of the soundtrack which is very similar to the digitally remastered soundtrack from the original DVD, but both are at a higher bit rate. Whereas the original DVD had a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix of both the original German and an English dubbed soundtrack, the Superbit DVD's Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS mixes are both of the German soundtrack. The English dubbed soundtrack only comes in Dolby Surround.

Is the higher bit rate audio and video worth losing the commentary and documentary? For anyone without the right A/V setup, it won't be, but a submarine movie is so much about the audio experience that Das Boot might be one of the movies most worthy of the Superbit treatment. --Eugene Wei

This film is amazing.
I served in the US Navy's submarine force, and Petersen's movie is the closest you can get to being in a sub without actually signing enlistment papers. This is one of the few war movies that is not relentlessly propagandistic. Petersen presents a story of humans--not stereotypes, not jingoistic misrepresentations of sailors. By the end of the film, you'll probably find yourself cheering for the Kriegsmarine crew, or at least hoping that they get home safely. As an American, raised after World War Two, I grew up with nothing but negative images and stereotypes of WWII Germany and Germans. Petersen and his cast do an amazing job of breaking through those representations and portraying a story of young, proud men who defy the odds and the elements and do what they perceive of as their duty, even though they find no glory--just despair.
I would recommend that you read Herbert Werner's memoir Iron Coffins in addition to watching this movie, especially if you are unfamiliar with the Battle of the Atlantic. Also, after the end of the movie, you should go outside, stand in the sunshine, and be glad that you are.

This is most definetly the best war movie I have ever seen. I have never seen anyone that has not taken interest in war after watching this movie. I have seen this movie many times and each time I learn something new. It is interesting to see how the other side was during WWII. I recommend this movie for anyone that has time to watch it.

My father in law served in German u-boots in WW II. He was one of the lucky ones who survived. He watched the director's cut, in German of course, and he said it was very authentic. All the things in the movie would not happen on any one boat, but he said that if you combine the stories of any 5 or 6 boats, you would have a move like that.

I have watched the movie in its dubbed version and German version. I much prefer the German version. I also have the original uncut version. I highly recommend you only watch that in its German version or you will miss a lot.

Is this the greatest war (or rather, anti-war) movie yet? I certainly think so. Before I saw Das Boot, my favourite movie with a war theme was actually Judgment At Nuremberg. But great as that movie was, it fell to second place even when the first time I saw Das Boot, it was a very badly annotated version.

Here we have the director's cut and the full suspense, horror and tragedy of Wolfgang Petersen's masterpiece has captivated me once again. The suffocating atmosphere of a WWII German U-boat is so real, you almost have to open a window in your home just to get through watching it. One can only imagine the stench in that tiny space crammed with dozens of men eating, drinking (and of course, defecating) whilst pouring with the sweat of effort and sheer terror.

You finish up wondering how it is that men can put themselves through such a ghastly experience in such a terrible environment. And then you realize that throughout the history of warfare it has always been so. From the hopelessness of the Spartans holding off the Persians at Thermopylae to the grisly trenches and massive casualties of WWI, the maxim that old men of dubious morals have always been able to convince young men of the glory and excitement of participating in war and of the moral right of doing so.

Only when they experience the reality of actual combat do these young men realize how truly human (even child-like) they really are and the horror of what they've gotten themselves into. And when you see the talents that many of them have, from the mechanics, electricians and other specialists that keep the boat running while at sea, to the human-management capabilities of the senior officers, you realize what a truly wasteful endeavour the practice of war is.

For those of us who have been fortunate enough never to have had to go to war, this film will reinforce our gratitude.

Das Boot (The Boat) presents us with a view of German submariners as was never done before. Forget the two-dimensional, semi-robotic Nazis perpetually portrayed in Hollywood films. These are men, ordinary men, serving in extraordinary times. Whatever the reasons that compelled them to go to war, here they are cast in all their glory with their human frailties facing up best they can to War and her unimaginable cruelties & painful ironies.

The best anti-war films are actually the ones that depict war the most realistically, and here, Wolfgang Petersen & his team really outdid themselves. From the decors that would have you believe a real U-boat appeared out of its legendary past to the first rate performance of all the actors involved. Nothing looks, or feels, fake about this movie. You simply have the impression of being really there getting your soul shaken to its very foundation by the Allied depth charges.

Having said this, this full-length version is only for the true fans of this type of saga. Mainstream viewers may find this a bit lengthy. After all, the movie is almost 5 hours long! Also, I was disappointed by the special features in this DVD. It just contains a re-hash hastily put together of material presented in earlier releases of the film. They could have done something a bit better as a complement to such a masterpiece of cinematography.

This movie, a classic in its` genre, is a fitting tribute to Dönitz`s Grey Wolves of the Kriegsmarine.
