Ruskie spy WW2 fantasy
5 September 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Some stylish handling, personable cast and a potentially interesting idea, in admiral Canaris trying to obfuscate Hitler's intention of declaring war on Stalin's Russia in 1941, but the plotting, like the colour is murky. Looked like the Russain laboratories had solved their programs a few years back but shadow detail has vanished in an orange haze again.

Our boxer-secret agent hero has to sort out spy rings that are using narrow cast TV and tape recorders before they were invented and are willing to send trolley cars to their doom.

It might play better with an audience who already knew the difference between the Cheka and the NKVD.
