The first half is....OK
11 September 2012 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Trailer -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnKZcGtHNlY

:This Review is Without Spoilers:

If you saw the trailer (linked above), you know what to expect, right? It's Moby Dick with tanks. An action packed cracker about a incredibly gifted tank commander hell-bent on tracking down an invincible ghost tank. Is that what the movie lives up to be?

Well... yes and no.

The first half follows this premise, sure. Atmospheric, gritty, dangerous. it's pretty much just what you were expecting, except everyone is so deadly serious. For crying out loud, we're talking about a ghost tank that vanishes into thin air and doesn't make mistakes? A man 90% covered in burns at the start who fully recovers shortly after? Why couldn't they have accepted how ridiculous that was and just rolled with it? The straight faced approach has it's advantages, sure- the buildup to the first encounter is supremely tense and eerie- but otherwise it just doesn't fit. It's almost like the film scolds us for enjoying this slice of high fantasy.

Also, for all the tanks that explode in the trailer, there are really only two main battle scenes, and while they are excellent (and I do mean excellent- some of the best tank action I've ever seen on film), they make up a relatively small fragment of the film, and leave you shocked when they decide not to show any more.

The other main problem is that the film does a sudden change towards the philosophical side halfway through. Now don't get me wrong- I have nothing against films that explore the introspective manner of human nature, that give you deep thoughts to contemplate after the movie is over, have quiet scenes with characters forced to look at themselves in a new way and so on. It's just that in a film where you advertise it as a tank explosion extravaganza with miracle healing and ghost vehicles, it's the LAST thing you need. The creators may have felt compelled to make a comment on the nature of the war or the people who fought in it. There is a time and place for that. This is not it.

People come to this movie to see what it advertised: tanks shooting and stuff blowing up. Save your more serious commentary for a film that suits the message- not your ghost-tank story! Overall, the first half is OK. Too serious for it's own good, but some real satisfying action in there. The second half... it's just a mess.

Seriously- Frozen Strawberries? What the hell was THAT about!?
