4.0 out of 5 stars A war time propaganda film, but also a surprisingly realistic look at the opening stages of the Battle of the Atlantic
This 1940 British film was part of war time propaganda effort, but as this kind of things goes it was rather a nicely done one and it is worth (re)discovering even today. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

Good period British war film, shows the dark days of the Battle of the Atlantic. Not a huge list of known stars but very well acted all the same. Fits well into my collection of WWII B&W films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where has this one been hiding?, 1 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Convoy (DVD)
What a gem of a film, so good was the action that at times you could almost feel as though you were there. Impeccable acting by the cast. many of them in the first throws of their careers and didn't they look young! The action shots for 1940 were excellent and the black white film helped to create the atmosphere. A film not to be missed if you like war themed ones.

I love the old films. They just don't make them like they use to. A certain generation of actors produced some of the great classics and this just adds to them.
