    Wow! I got this movie last night from the $5.50 bin at Walmart! I haven't gone more than about 20 minutes into it, and one of these initial scenes has Jude Law taking on the role of a sniper when he and a guy are pinned down by some German troops (Law plays a Russian WWII soldier). He shoots like five guys, four of them done each time a bomb falls, to conceal the sound of his rifle-shot. It's an amazing scene! Since it's only five bucks, you should go get it and watch it. It's pretty friggin' cool!

    Awesome movie!!!

    Danilov: I want to help you, Vassili. Let me do one last thing, something useful for a change.
    [Takes off his helmet]
    Danilov: Let me show you where the Major is.

    That part was the funniest thing I have ever seen. Ok so I have a bad sense of humor. It was a great historical movie.

    It was good to see a WWII movie in a different setting than usual. Plus I loved the battles between the two snipers. So cool.

    It was maddening to witness the largest bloodiest battle of the largest bloodiest war in history reduced to a mere backround for two little insignificant snipers.


    The backround was awesomely done in this movie, and was far more interesting than the main sniper plot; Which just got in the way.

    I know, the battle is just too big to be able to focus on any clear dramatic struggle, but it would have been better to focus on one or more starving children sneaking around the battle looking for food and trying to survive.

    Seeing the battle-torn city through their impressionable eyes would have been far more dramatic, powerful, and memorable.

    The only thing that spoiled it for me was Judd Law. He looked the part and I can't criticise him for something I myself couldn't do, but he lacked the spirit of this legendary soldier. This was a true story and in Hollywood fashion they served it in a little paper box with large fries and a coke attached. All these true story movies are great when you don't know the history, as for example m6m's, eye-opening statement(btw very good, mate), but for someone who is affected by history, due to culture, or nationality they are an insult.(as was Alexander to everyone living in Greece).

    lets take it one step futher, i have not seen the movie yet "i well" but the most famous and the snipers with the most kill "this IS a fact" were russian woman snipers and few americans "public" knows anything about them and have never been shown or talk about in any western WW 2 movies one of this russian woman snipers had 800 confirm kills. there were a few more with slight less.

    I was watching it today.

    Good performance, but a very shitty holywoo plot, and a bad representation of Stalingrad.

    The "sex" scene was raw and dirty. Oddly erotic in my opinion. Maybe its cause Rachael Weisz is so friggen hot.
     
  13. I thought it was a great movie, but then again I tend to like anything where nazis get shot.
