Stefan Pape, Scott Davis and Linda Marric review Greyhound for the HeyUGuys Youtube channel.
Tom Hanks leads the Word War 2 film Greyhound, which also stars Stephen Graham, Elisabeth Shue, Michael Benz, Rob Morgan, David Maldonado, Jimi Stanton, Matt Helm, Manuel Garcia-Rufloa, Travis Przybylski and tom Brittney. It went to VOD, disappointing Hanks, but our team take a look at the war film and see if the action still impresses on the small screen. Plot: Early in World War II, an inexperienced U.S. Navy captain must lead an Allied convoy being stalked by Nazi U-boat wolfpacks.
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 leader of the convoy’s destroyer screen is a US Navy commander making his first Atlantic crossing.
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. Greyhound premieres July 10 only on the Apple TV app
