U-571 | Chicago Reader


As if to justify yet another unironic war movie, the closing credits of this 2000 feature include dedications to real men in the Allied armed forces who managed to take coding devices from German submarines during World War II. During the special operation executed by U.S. Navy lieutenant Matthew McConaughey and his cliche-spouting crew, lots of things go wrong. Only some are the result of sheer stupidity, but many are remedied by sheer coincidence. Sam Montgomery, David Ayer, and director Jonathan Mostow wrote the screenplay; with Bill Paxton and Harvey Keitel.
