Although there's no documentary confirmation of a Soviet tank's escape from German concentration camp, there was confirmed successful escape of Soviet imprisoned pilots leading by Michael Devyataev on German bomber in February 1945. The fact is well-known in SU/Russia and have been filmed as well. See more »
This movie definitely does not aim at depicting anything technically or historically genuine about WWII. It rather shows a legend, like those of the old good russian "bogatyri", with all the good sentiments that are still very popular in Russia about the "Great Patriotic War" and the comforts of a contemporary action movie.
That said, I found the film fresh and highly enjoyable. Maybe I'm a little biased, due to my personal interest in Russian language and popular culture, but I'd say that it compares well with the best occidental production of the same genre.
