Still shot from the movie: U-571.


Commanding officer Mike Dahlgren's (Bill Paxton) crew is surprised when they are assigned to an aging S-33 WWI sub that has been retrofitted to look like a German U-boat. From intelligence officer Lt. Hirsch (Jake Weber) they learn another German U-boat lies disabled in the Atlantic and their mission is to fool the German crew on board into thinking help has arrived so they can take control of the lame sub, and an encryption device it carries.
