Goofs

The broken down 'tank' in the German headquarters is actually a self propelled gun. Kan should have known this when he asked when the 'tank' was going to be repaired. At the very least, the crew should have pointed out that it was a self propelled gun. See more »

Descent blockbuster
5 January 2014 | by klukvindomSee all my reviews

Admire the ambition, but this version of Bondarchuk fails to back up its camera work, special effects and editing with enough of substance to anchor the spectator.

Cant say i was convinced with the plot or the dialogs, neither my feelings were really touched. Thomas Kretschmann actually is the only one who's character seems to be convincing. Great actor who saved this film...

Descent piece of work, but not anything i would choose to watch one more time. Would have expected Fedor Bondarchuk to come up with something much more substantial, taking into consideration the topic...
