great trailer, awful movie
1 September 2020 | by munich1972See all my reviews

So "Secret Weapon" is a new Soviet war fim about a group of soldiers sent behind the german lines to destroy a secret weapon now in possession of the germans (the weapon is the katusha rocket launcher). The trailer for this movie is great--the film is a waste of time to watch. With no backstory a russian solder is taken from jail and put in command of a group sent to get the secret weapon back or desttroy it. The dialogue, dubbing and plot of the movie quickly unravel and start not making sense. Their are battle scenes where the germans fall down dead if the russians merely take the safety catch off their rifles and lots of slow scenes where the soldiers talk about home and their families. A similar but actually quite good russian film from 2002 called "The Star" covers the same ground as Secret Weapon but does it way better than this film. My favorite scene in Secret Weapon which took it from bad to ridiculous was when one soldier orders another to collect firewood and the 2nd soldier's response is "your way too bold dude"--no I'm not kidding. I don't think "dude" was part of the russian vocabulary in 1943 but I could be wrong.
