During military exercises, the commander of the landing regiment sends three groups of saboteurs to the enemy's rear. Their task is to detect and capture a disguised command post. To complete the task they have not much time - two days. In case of failure of the operation, they will be defeated in the exercises, which is completely unacceptable. They will execute the order in conditions as close as possible to the combat ones. Two groups of saboteurs are defeated and captured. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

A good action film
22 September 2001 | by neuromancer51See all my reviews

This is a very good action film about the Russian paratroopers. It is a film of substance, far superior to any Hollywood action movie, despite the relatively low budget. The action is much less frantic than that portrayed in Hollywood films of the same nature, and at the same time it is much closer to how we (soldiers) actually do things.

The film has a good plot, solid characters, and offers plenty of suspense.
