Action Packed .

Worth watching

The acting is superb and the pace of the film is breathtaking.

This movie had alot of potential, and with just a few adjustments could have been a very realistic, exciting movie that poses good questions to ponder.

If you're really bored, it's ...

Nice directing, nice shooting, nice acting yet so poor script that it becames so boring and ridicouly that at some point is hilarious.

Gripping .

The beginning was a bit confusing, mostly because what happened on ground seems messy.

This movie is so worth watching!!

There's something vaguely mystical about gliding through the water in darkness listening for the sound of other predators in a dangerous game of hide and seek that I've always found fascinating, and 'The Wolf's Call', the title a reference to that idea, is an excellent contribution to the genre.

Some very funny one liners in my opinion and some great tense moments which kept me on the edge of my seat.

In addition, it was just too slow for my taste, and in some cases, overly technical.

Found this film watchable and entertaining.

It kept you on the edge of your seat, & as someone who worked on the Seawolf support group I found this movie very accurate.

Breathtaking .

Cinematographically, this film is very compelling, capturing tangibly the inherent claustrophobia and constant danger of a sub at war.

Silly and a bit slow .

Le Chant du Loup is a simple, yet complex story, with solid acting and compelling narrative and a strong reminiscence of the great classics of the genre.

Exciting realistic well acted .

Stunning camerawork of under water.

still stupid, but hey, you can spend your time hating instead of boredom.

Breathtaking and Heartwrenching .

The first half of this movie is gripping, and though the submarine genre may already be saturated, it tells it's story from a unique perspective, that of the sub's expert sonar technician.

Definitely a good watch however and I enjoyed it .

Capitalising on that, it builds a suspenseful thriller that keeps you on edge all the way through.

Thoroughly enjoyable watching and I couldn't turn away.

Riveting .

Definitely an enjoyable movie.

Submarines are exciting, maybe because there aren't that many films involving them.

After a brief interlude wherethe pace got somewhat slower, I just couldn't stop watching it.

Very entertaining.

Tense, exciting and captivating.

I think that's the reason the story is so compelling, and why I personally found the movie so immersive.

Obviously flawed in plot, acting and believability yet entertaining.

I entered the theater ready to be bored, being there to please some friends, and we ended the dinner endlessly talking about it.

A riveting, breath taking movie with a very dark atmosphere and an ending that Hollywood film industry will never give us anymore.

Very intelligent plot, still suffers from some cliche characters.

Pure waste of time .

Well worth watching .

INTENSE!

tired cliché #1: the XO's fighting the captain again.

But third act aside, the movie is still really solid and entertaining.

It was fast paced and the twists were incredible.

A very entertaining movie and one will empathize for each and every character.

However the story is confusing a little bit and movie is lengthy.

The story is great and the acting has well the main characters is great But the supporting actors are also engaging as well alldo very well at commanding our attention.

WOLF'S CALL proves that a smaller scale underwater thriller can be tense and engaging even with a very restricted budget.

This film is like many war films, created by studios and directors that are more interested in making something look exciting than making it realistic.

All in all, an entertaining couple of hours - apart from the last thirty minutes.

And yes, of course, tired cliché #2: a torpedo falls and injures a sailor.

All in all, very entertaining, and recommended.

The movie look like yet another shameless western propaganda due to its geopolitical context, which includes all the "usual suspects".

Frigate men must fell asleep.
