I really expected to see some stupid clone movie and watched it 6 months after buying because nothing else was to see.
Darn this one rocks, I laughed, understood situations and it really nicely messed some things together like you were fighting there yourself. At the beginning I was thinking Full Metal Jacket, somehow it was pretty much alike.
I have seen so many bad and boring war movies, this isn't one of them. Excellent is my opinion.
Anyway I haven't seen any other Russian war movie and I like Russian movies...
Really worth of watching if you like war movies even a bit.
