    Don't get too upset U 571 is typical Hollywood historical garbage and some would say an insult to the extremely brave BRITISH sailors who actually recovered the first enigma machine.

    But doesn't Matthew Mcconaughy look fantastic !!

    Complete rubbish,

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Well, remember the audience. Made by Americans for Americans. Doing historical justice to the Brits, or the Germans for that matter, never figured into the story. For whatever reason, Hollywood seems to think that we need to always have the GIs kicking ass, even if we never did -- or that we can't watch a story about someone else playing/being the hero.

    So what if the history gets in the way? That movie is in one of my "worst ever" categories for historical subject.

    I'm already cringing about what Tom Cruise does to the Stauffenberg story in the soon-to-be-released "Valkyrie". I'm not hopeful.

    Movies are seldomly accurate. If they really wanted them to be accurate, they would probably ask people that know better than they do. If they did that, then what use are they?

    When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
    An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
    An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
