Trivia

The original script by Ilya Tilkin has no literary source. Tilkin studied museum archives as well as the diaries of the Stalingrad Battle participants to write the script. Some parts of Vasiliy Grossman's "Life and Fate" were used for a few scenes. See more »

Goofs

When the Germans begin firing mortars, you see one of them drop a round down the tube, then place his hand over the muzzle for a moment. This is an unthinkable act for any soldier - as soon as the round reaches the firing pin at the bottom of the tube, it will fire, and any fingers over the muzzle will be on their way to the target. Any soldier with even basic mortar experience will know to keep his hand moving downward as soon as he lets go of the round. Firing a mortar is a pretty intense experience, and the muzzle is the most dangerous part of the weapon (for the person firing it), and it is just natural to keep your fingers away as much as possible. A soldier firing a mortar as depicted in the movie will only get a couple of rounds off before he runs out of hands. See more »

Big explosions, little feeling.

WWII gets the 300 treatment as our fantastic heroes defeat the nasty Germans, sometimes single handedly killing a dozen men each in slow motion blood spraying hand to hand combat. It's that realistic, especially as Russians apparently keep fighting even when completely consumed by flames.

The defenders of Stalingrad were courageous real people but this belittles them as two dimensional action heroes.

A lot of effort and budget was put into making this but it was ill spent, there is no reflection, no feeling, no humanity, it is hollow. If you want to see a film about Stalingrad look up the earlier German film.
