Felt more like a made-for-TV production instead of a feature motion picture.

Based upon the novel "The Good Shepherd" by C S Forester, this is the thrilling story of the leader of an Allied convoy crossing the North Atlantic in 1942 as he faces relentless attack by a Nazi submarine wolf pack.

The story focuses on the his command responsibility as he fights the cold, the relentless night, the brutal sea and his deep fatigue as he chases down the attacking submarines in the deadly game of cat and mouse. The exciting story, a thrilling ride-along with the beleaguered captain, so deeply portrays the elements of battle command that for a long period of time the book was used as a text at the US Naval Academy.

Cheap filming qualityReviewed byglenhein-52126Vote: 4/10
It was just OK which is reflected in my 6 star rating.
It's a difficult challenge to portray on film the battle between a destroyer and a submarine. This movie never really pulls that off, it's like listening to one side of a telephone conversation. The German U-boats never seem to be part of the narrative.
Almost exactly half of the dialogue is sailors repeating orders. It got very tedious, very quickly. I thought they went too far in the whole "navy talk" department.
I found the U-boat attack theme music to be mostly bothersome and heavy-handed, like death wail of a fat man, or a runner-up in Dumb and Dumber's most annoying sound in the world.
The sea burial onboard was a moving tribute to our military dead. I couldn't imagine a better resting place than the open sea. I was air force and not really sure what we did. Threw bodies out the back of a C130? That'd be cool with me.
This one stars Tom Hanks commanding a CGI-destroyer called 'Greyhound' in the Atlantic Ocean. He has couple of stand-offs with some CGI-german U-boats before returning home at the 1 hour and 20 minute mark. 5 minutes later: the endtitles.
Like Nolan's 'Dunkirk' there's no character development at all. It's just 70 minutes of Hanks giving orders, and the second in command repeating them for the crew.
I am surprised that I found 'Greyhound' boring, but now I can at least understand the reason for the straight-to-VOD decision.
