Trivia

Stalingrad is the first Russian movie made completely in 3D IMAX and the first non-North American film in the IMAX format. However, it is not the first 3D movie to come out of Russian territory. The honor goes to "Concert" produced in 1940-1941 in USSR, directed by Alexander Andrievsky, and released on February 4th, 1941. 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 »

Very poor film about great battle
23 October 2013 | by mikhusSee all my reviews

Actually, this film MUST not have its name. There is nothing about Stalingrad battle... Yes, cute pictures how burned Soviet soldiers attacking German positions and slow-motion hand-to-hand battles looks nice, but that is nothing related to real history of this battle.

In terms of scale the film does not give the answer at least about one local engagement in Stalingrad in WW2, especially if take into account that there were a lot of such events. Heroes behaves really strange and illogical sometimes. Very messy scene where commander made hysteric about killed German soldier who came for water. "Even animals do not devour each other at the watering!" he says. What? Hey, director, haven't you seen "Animal planet"?..

So the good name for this film is "Saving girl Katya", but not "Stalingrad". It's just a director's fantasies about THE WAR, and how does he see it, but there is nothing related to Stalingrad battle at all. Now we can easily change decorations and make film with same mental content named "Berlin" or "Kiev", because we could simply imagine the same "war story" anywhere. So, why Stalingrad?..
