World War II: Stan (Koen De Bouw) and his gang of Bad Potatoes are the Resistance's most ruthless Nazi killers, so much so that even the Allied Forces put them on a black list - but then there's a nutjob mission only they can be expected to succeed in: To deliver a load of uranium for the Manhattan Project in a submarine stolen from the Germans. Stan's men are not entirely keen on being instructed how to even maneuver a submarine by German prisoner of war Captain Jäger (Thure Riefenstein), who tells them repeatedly they'll never make it out alive, but it gets worse when their original captain (Vic de Wachter) dies right before cast-off and they have to pretty much force Jäger to become their commander as he's the only one who has any experience with how to run a submarine. The journey is under a bad star right from the start, as everything that can go wrong does go wrong, from Stan catching his daughter (Ella-June Henrard) he didn't even want to take with him in bed with the ratio operator (Robrecht Vanden Thoren) to the submarine under attack from the air, duelling it out with another sub, a German patrol inspecting the ship, and ultimately being run over by a battleship - and all the while Stan knows he can't trust Jäger one bit. And whenever things can get worse, they do, and Stan and his men are always just one betrayal away from the firing squad - or worse ...

 

Now there are not all that many submarine thrillers around, and quite objectively speaking, that's maybe a good thing, as the range of situations that can happen on a sub is pretty limited - but that said, Torpedo U-235 sure is one of the best U-boat movies that has come out in quite some time as it tells its character-heavy story at a rather breathless pace, puts an emphasis on suspense throughout, and yet keeps the audience guessing till he end how and even if our heroes will succeed. And of course, having Martin Semmelrogge from the German mother (if by no means originator) of all submarine movies, Das Boot, make a guest appearance as a German officer is a rather inspired idea that only contributes to making this one a top thriller of its ilk.
