5.0 out of 5 stars Russian Blockbuster Nov. 29 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm surprised how few russian movies make it to a release in northamerica.
There are so many just as good as Hollywood Productions, if not better.
The ninth company, is just one of those.
Great acting, incredible CGI enhanced Battlescenes, moving scenes of humanity, in a world of madness.
Young canadian Veterans, back from Afghanistan, how have seen this film, where surprised about it's authentissity.
Specially the scenes, that dealt with meeting the civilians, or the terror into stumbling into the usually "unseen" combatant enemies. Like our protagonist Aleksy Shadov who runs unexpectedly into a Mujaheddin (todays Taliban),when
he tries to replenish his water-bottle at a mountain spring, finding one young enemy, at the same activity......
The viewer will also be witness, of how the CIA (Charly Wilsons War) imported Stinger Missiles take their toll on russian Aircraft. There is one really spectacular scene at the Kandahar Airport.
What I liked most about this film, was it's humanity, and how simular those russian soldiers, resembled our own brave canadian Soldiers.
Also this film used elements of the earlier Full Metal Jacket Vietnam flick, portraing young russian recruits, undergoing a harsh and gritty combat training, leaving their loved ones at home to enter Hell.

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh March 2 2014

Took a gamble, wasn't the best in my opinion.

I could tell it was very pro Russian in how the story line went. Mujaheddin would walk and not be in cover annihilating Russians who had high ground a good cover, but after a Hoorah! from the Russians they start walking out and slaughter the mujaheddin.

1.0 out of 5 stars Highly overrated... Dec 18 2010
I was quite surprised about the number of good reviews that are out there for this movie. I found it to be a train wreck of cheesey cliche after cheesey cliche. All the stereotypical war movie characters are there....the wise cracking street tough, the educated intellectual, the grizzled war vet, etc. On top of that I'm sure the director painted some of the actors faces darker brown to make them look more "Afghani". The acting was quite poor for the most part, particularly the scenes where the actors are trying to portray intense emotions.

The battle scenes are some of the worst I've seen in recent memory. The battles seem to consist of either the enemy walking slowly in the middle of open terrain shoulder to shoulder and occasionally firing a few rounds at the "good guys". Or the Russians walking shoulder to shoulder and practically tripping on each others heals in the middle of the open. The stereotypical "we're all going to die so lets make one last charge" theme strikes several times to poor effect.

Every bit of the movie is predictable, I won't give any spoiler alerts but chances are your first predictions you have about what is going to happen will be correct. All in all I found very little of this movie believable or even entertaining. I had such high hopes. If you want to watch a movie about Russians in Afghanistan stick with "The Beast".
