good wwii movie
31 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

very good movie for world war 2 fans. there is pretty good comparison about the expression of emotions between german and the slavic people. as the previous comments, if there is a partizan get killed, the whole world is bleeding. when german colonel kranzer called host and suddently he realised that host is killed. he just supressed his emotion. this is a international movie. there are two german tiger tanks, some ex-cccp t34 tanks and us made sherman tanks. of course, the german tiger tanks are too expensive to be destroyed. most of the destroyed tanks are us made sherman tanks(cheap).
