Stalingrad is the first Russian movie made completely in 3D IMAX and the first non-North American film in the IMAX format. However, it is not the first 3D movie to come out of Russian territory. The honor goes to "Concert" produced in 1940-1941 in USSR, directed by Alexander Andrievsky, and released on February 4th, 1941. See more »

WWII gets the 300 treatment as our fantastic heroes defeat the nasty Germans, sometimes single handedly killing a dozen men each in slow motion blood spraying hand to hand combat. It's that realistic, especially as Russians apparently keep fighting even when completely consumed by flames.
The defenders of Stalingrad were courageous real people but this belittles them as two dimensional action heroes.
A lot of effort and budget was put into making this but it was ill spent, there is no reflection, no feeling, no humanity, it is hollow. If you want to see a film about Stalingrad look up the earlier German film.
