We gave it a C-

Seeking that hard-to-find hybrid of ”A Beautiful Mind” and ”U-571”? Try this adaptation of Robert Harris’ best-selling novel, starring ”M:I-2”’s Dougray Scott as a British mathematician tapped to break Nazi U-boat codes. Also headlining are Kate Winslet and Jeremy Northam, but note the star wattage behind the camera: Michael Apted (”The World Is Not Enough”) directs a script by Tom Stoppard (”Shakespeare in Love”), while Mick Jagger and Lorne Michaels produce.
