2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Ian Gordon Malcomson HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Sept. 20 2014
Format: DVD
As other reviewers have mentioned already, this production is flat, uninspiring, and a little heavy on the propaganda. Seen through the eyes of a platoon of Russian soldiers set on defending Stalingrad at all costs, this story quickly becomes a patchwork of ill-conceived features that only undermine the real importance of this tragic event. Sensationalized combat scenes meant to appeal to those who like playing video games give it an air of unreality; a thinly veiled attempt to lionize Russian defenders creates characters that talk and act like automatons; and a couple of quirky features such as the absence of subtitles and the occasional annoying monotone voice of a narrator to move things along. It is obvious that too much has been done to fix up this movie for the North American market. One thing in its favour, however, is that it does not let up when it comes to presenting this epic battle in all its mindless fury. In the end, the viewer is left with a collection of images that are supposed to explain that humanity can co-exist with, and even triumph over, savagery in war. The problem here is that the story is not very compelling because the main characters are not allowed to be themselves; they all seem to be operating according to a very controlled script: kill or be killed.

Format: Blu-ray
This is Russia's entry to the 2014 Academy Awards for best Foreign language film. Problem is the version I saw was dubbed into American. I know there have been issues with the huge sub titles that did not necessarily match the dialogue, but I would always prefer to watch in the original language - which I have now found out was an option. The Germans all speak German so that bit was alright.

Anyway the movie tells the story of a band of Russian soldiers and navy who have to defend a strategically important house in the centre of Stalingrad to protect the Volga crossing. [If only the Germans had brought some planes they could have flown over!] Still never mind, and in this house is Katya who they are all smitten with. They are up against a German of ambiguous disposition, Kahn, who could be a good German or a crazed rapist and xenophobe, the debate is a bit wide open.

We have a number of battles and fighting scenes, which are mostly done in slow motion and with some bizarre camera angles, which are there I suspect, as this was also shot in 3 D so has to have the pizzazz factor for the pop corn addicts. It has very little to do with the actual battle of Stalingrad and the story line could be placed in a fair number of other locations. The action was done very well and the CGI money was generally well spent. The acting is hard to gauge because of the awful dubbing.

There is a lot of pointless dialogue too that seems to act as padding. The soldiers being afire and attacking the Germans at the beginning was a bit of a stretch and set my mind against the film from that point. There was a lot of cash spent on this and yet the overall accomplishment is somewhat flat. It comes across as a bit propaganda filled too but is so unconvincing that it doesn't matter.

Stalingrad the turning point of WWII. Here in this film we see why the determination of the Russian people was finally able to overcome the strength of the German army. Five Russian and a girl are held up in a house and are able through their grit and strength to beat beat the Germans. It is beautiful to watch as the girl is able to bring out the inner man even though they are faced with the daily horrors of war.
Really worth watching as history comes alive.

Boy did I made a mistake trusting the reviewer ratings for this movie. This movie is crap. I think it was cheap Russian movie with voice over. Yes, it has some fancy CGI but the acting and story line is lousy. So many useless slow-motion scenes which does not help with the story. I watch only 1/2 the movie and I threw it in the garbage can since I can't get my money back. Don't buy this movie.

If you are are expecting a version of 'Enemy at the Gates' you will be sorely dissappointed. I sure was!!!!! This starts with a long scene of a Japanese disaster leaving you wondering whether they've sent you the right movie....it ends with the same scenario but draws the weakest of connections. The film has some (I emphasize some) good scenes. Constantly falling ash is a nice touch. The dubbing in very strong american accents is cheesy to the extreme.....but then most of the dialogue is cheesy too. This film starts with a lot of confusion - has a tolerable, maudlin, mid-section, and a truly terrible inconclusive ending leaving you thinking WTF?
'Enemy at the Gates' was a superb film - this is ratshit. There appears not to be a rating for -5 stars.

This was a decent movie and better than most of the russian produced stuff and of course better than most things published here about Stalingrad. If you are interested in one short Story of Stalingrad...you will like this
