The film is based on a true story of the 9th company during the Soviet invasion in Afghanistan in the 1980's. Young Soviet Army recruits are sent from a boot camp into the middle of the war in Afghanistan. The action is not like a boot camp at all. It is very bloody and dirty. The 9th company is defending the hill 3234. They are hopelessly calling for help.Written by

We were leaving Afghanistan. We, the 9th company, we won our war. Back then we didn't know many things. We didn't know that, two years later, the country we had fought for would vanish. That wearing medals of a nonexistent country would become unfashionable.

I really expected to see some stupid clone movie and watched it 6 months after buying because nothing else was to see.
Darn this one rocks, I laughed, understood situations and it really nicely messed some things together like you were fighting there yourself. At the beginning I was thinking Full Metal Jacket, somehow it was pretty much alike.
I have seen so many bad and boring war movies, this isn't one of them. Excellent is my opinion.
Anyway I haven't seen any other Russian war movie and I like Russian movies...
Really worth of watching if you like war movies even a bit.
