Murphy's War

Sole survivor of a British merchant vessel, sunk by torpedoes off the coast of Venezuela during the last days of World War II, conducts a one-man war against the U-boat responsible, all the way to a kamikaze end. But the potential of the storyline breaks down into a series of cliché scenes, characters and relationships, and neither Yates nor his lead actor Peter O'Toole has the inspiration to boost the level higher than mere competence.
