bad propaganda and a bad film
4 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A gorgeous print of this film is now available. Too bad as it is a terrible film. It is almost impossible to follow and in most action scenes it is hard to tell who is who. There are thousands of extras and battles of all types here but for no good reason. Stalin, Molotov, Hitler, Roosevelt, Churchill and other World War 2 personalities occasionally show up but, overall, Stalin steals everything.

The Fall of Berlin is now also available and though a bad film it is fascinating and I love it. Skip this mess and see the latter. You'll see Stalin and Hitler as you've never seen them before in the greatest propaganda film of all time. It is everything The Battle of Stalingrad is not and it has the glorious music of Shostakovich.
