Quite good.
25 February 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This war movie was quite nice. It portrayed the lives of the people in Leningrad during the siege during World War 2. So in this aspect it was refreshing to see a new approach to parts of WW2.

The story was compelling and moving. You got to feel for and with the characters in the movie, like you were part of their struggles. The cast had a huge part in this, because all characters were well portrayed and really came to life on the screen.

The sets and sceneries were amazing as well, very detailed in every aspect.

The movie have a lot of moving scenes and images, and it makes you feel part of the story. It really came together in a good way, and the movie was not boring for a second, despite it not being non-stop action from start till end - as with most war movies. What really works in this movie is that the Russians do speak Russian and the Germans do speak German. It is crap when they speak English, but with an added Russian or German accent - which they do in most movies! That just doesn't work. But keeping it in their respective languages adds so much more realism to the movie, and that is one of the really good things in this movie.

This movie is almost as good as the 1993 German movie "Stalingrad". If you liked that one, then you should not let "Leningrad" pass you by. This is top entertainment, especially if you like WW2.
