Excellent movie
21 February 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I totally disagree with the previous review awarding this movie 4 out of 10 and viewers then not going ahead and seeing this great movie. Just because this movie depicts a genuine Russian war hero; instead of the usual USA war hero does not mean we should not appreciate a realistic, uplifting and patriotic drama displaying a more positive side to the Russian character than we usually see, e.g. Russian mafia etc. I found the movie fascinating and exciting, re-creating a war little is known about in the west. This movie is in the great tradition of earlier Russian movies about the Second World War and shows a long-suffering people still has pride in their country despite its sad recent history. The love story is cute and although I would have liked to have seen more passion, it might have been out of character for the young girl who is absolutely gorgeous, by the way. As for the Moslems rebels in Chechna I thought they were depicted realistically and we all know that we can't criticize them because they are so touchy, so I will not elaborate on this and I will not include any cartoons on this public media website or I may start another war or be included on a jihad blacklist. After all as a movie buff I just want to continue to enjoy good movies and hope that one day there will be no more wars let alone; religious wars! I can only say the Cold War is over so let everyone including even touchy Moslems enjoy this great Russian, admittedly propaganda, movie glorifying its military heroes and not let Hollywood have a monopoly on brave Yankee soldiers! I noticed it on Foxtel in Australia and suspected it would be a good movie, despite the only one review on IMDb, so see it if you can, especially if you like good war movies, you won't regret it! I give this movie a solid 7/10!
