The film was originally released through Artisan Entertainment under the title "U-Boat". However, another film with the same title had recently been released. The film was changed to "In Enemy Hands" after the film was purchased by Lionsgate.. "In Enemy Hands" received little or no publicity or advertising after being released in the U.S. by Lionsgate. Based on a true story, the lack of publicity and advertisement resulted in very little attention by movie-goers. See more »

Kapitän Jonas Herdt:
At the outbreak of World War II, Germany increased its U-boat production by 1,000%, mass-producing 17 new U-boats a month. Hitler knew the key to winning the war in Europe was to control the Atlantic. And control it he would. By 1942, German U-boats, working in groups called wolf packs, sunk over 1,000 Allied ships. Their success gave Germany a decisive advantage. They were winning the war. And if this trend continued, all of Europe would fall.

Til Schweiger and Thomas Kretschmann really make this movie, I have no idea if they have ever worked together before this but they really connected as their characters in this film.I found all the scenes in this film that draw you in and make you care about what is happening always were with these two actors or a scene with the German actors in the film.
The neat part of the English speaking actors is that you have probably have seen most of them on several shows on t.v., they are good but not very established.
Til and Thomas were fantastic to watch, for me they were the reason I liked this movie. I realize two people can not make a script good, nor a movie great but I think those two actors alone make this movie worth watching.
