Movie Reviews

A Good Introduction Into the Modern Silent Service
M. A. Ramos | Florida USA | 07/08/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This short documentary of just under an hour gives you a very brief history of the submarine service and an introduction into what it takes to become and live on a US. Nuclear submarine. There is some filming of the crew and operations with a couple of drills on a SSN. This brief glimpse is amazing considering how the service does not wish to share information on a weapon system that relies on secrecy. Having been on a nuclear submarine I can tell you that they filmed on an actual boat and if you are interested in modern submarines this is worth watching for the brief glimpse into that world."
Intro to nuclear submarine life
G. Wayne Hild | mars | 07/13/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This video is a basic introduction to life on & in a nuclear submarine. It does touch & I mean touch lightly upon the earlier WW subs & some basic statistics about how they performed such a great part in the war against japan. If you are interested in a light glimpse into the nuclear sub except where only the priveledged are allowed then buy this dvd."
This Was A Good Buy
Pirate54 | Real World | 01/13/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I am always interested in the history and the workings of mililary operations. The DVD movie is a good representation of submarine history. Many often forget that after Pearl Harbor, the 'Silent Service' was the main means of defense in the Pacific until the fleet could be rebuilt. Or that Rickover was the father of our present nuclear navy. A navy that kept this world safe during the Cold War.

The music CD is a pleasant surprise. My wife enjoys that. We both enjoy Mozart."
Good documentary
CoolFatDog | Richmond, VA USA | 03/29/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Although it is a bit short in length, this is a good documentary on subs, including some discussion of strategy."
