Impressive film with a wrong title
29 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

The producer was able to pull the Russia-Ukraine title all in one piece despite the events of 2014 in Kiev. Probably the bulk of the scenes was shot in 2013.

The storyline goes on about a true WW2 Red Army female sniper with the highest confirmed hit list ever. Check out the Wikipedia.

A sad personal drama wound into the 1941 context when Wehrmacht was advancing in Southern Ukraine, USSR.

With a moderate budget, as it appears to me, the makers were restricted to a moderate combined arms warfare footage, but of a very decent quality.

Most moving is the tragedy of the main character who lives through the first two years of war and a personal tragedy.

It is not a blockbuster action-filled war theme that must be a dangling carrot for a moviegoer but rather a biographical sniper daily routine and mentality.

On seeing the movie I was a bit puzzled why its name bears "Battle for Sevastopol" as it is only touched upon.

A mind-blowing alternative to the American Sniper. You decide on your own.
