Bear Island 
About this deal
However, several of them turn out to be more interested in the fact that (according to the film) there was a German U-boat base on the island during the Second World War. Donald Sutherland attempts a flawed hero, but he doesn’t have much to work with, which includes a particularly vapid Redgrave.
Casualties will soon begin to mount and if one didn’t know any better, you might think Kurt Russell and the cast of The Thing might turn up at any moment due to the arctic isolation and the sabotage being committed upon various life preserving needs such as a generator. The filmography is also great for a self-shot action movie under such conditions (if only the "found footage" genre films could be this smooth). Gewiss nicht der spannenste Thriller, dennoch schön in Kälte eingewattet und auf Rätselsuche (U-Boot, zweiter Weltkrieg) sogar etwas Adventure-Feeling ausstrahlend.The downside of this professionalism is that some viewers might be skeptical that they actually pulled this off. And a member of the expedition is quickly killed, but it's way over an hour into it before we even know the cause of the mystery, let alone who is behind the naughty goings on.
The 'Morning Rose' is carrying a multinational expedition of United Nations scientists to the remote Bear Island to study " climate change".

We know Sutherland isn't the bad guy because he is the hero, but his father was a U-Boat captain who died on the island. I was drawn to this because of the fantastic cast so it made an instant poor impression because so many of them were sporting silly accents and I'm not sure it ever really recovered. Christopher Lee, Richard Widmark and Vanessa Redgrave give their European accents a whirl (which, in Widmark’s case, is oddly transfixing). Most notably, the view of the captain Lansing's cabin presents the captain's corpse being handcuffed to bulkhead and another corpse sitting by the desk.
In 2020 HarperCollins Publishers decided to reprint MacLean with fine new covers and a uniform look. They transform the challenging nature of Bear Island into their own playground, finding ice-cold waves and precipitous slopes. However, due to this movie's disappointing box-office performance, "Goodbye, California", and the other titles were never made by producer Peter Snell, who had bought the rights to numerous MacLean works in 1975, including ones at the time that had not even been published or written yet. On the remote Norwegian Bear Island, used as a submarine base by the Germans during World War II, U.
