Editorial Reviews

A band of determined Russian soldiers fight to hold a strategic building in their devastated city against a ruthless German army, and in the process become deeply connected to a Russian woman who has been living there. In Stalingrad, directed by Fedor Bondarchuk, the scale of the battle contrasts dramatically with the human drama of the Russian soldiers, the few remaining civilians and their invaders into Stalingrad.

Customer Reviews

I thought maybe this movie wouldn't be as bad as everyone was making out.
D. Roberts
It is the story of a woman saved by a group of Soviet soldiers and how they keep open a path for the Russian forces to reenforce Stalingrad.
Bill Hensler
Extreme action, excellent special effects, great sound and a decent story line.
W. Baumbeck

Well, for $ 1.28, I suppose I can't complain that much, but I was rather disappointed, in this film. While the special effects were much superior to the 1993 German production of the same title, the earlier film is much better , with a much more compelling story, and lacking the silly romantic side story of this version.
Ironically, the seemingly ubiquitous Thomas Kretschmann was also in the 1993 version, yet, after 20 years, he's still only a hauptmann! I thought promotion was quicker in wartime?
A Russian production, the movie concentrates primarily on a Russian reconnaisance team facing long odds in the defense of a buliding blocking the German's route to the Volga, and possible final victory in this horrific battle.
The Russian's are given some fleshing out of their characters, but are still somewhat stereotypical types, but not as bad as the Germans, save, perhaps Kretschmann's somewhat conflicted portrayal. His CO, a far too long in the tooth oberstleutnant, is a caricature of the German officer we have seen in so many movies. The killing of Russian civilians, graphically portrayed, was really unecessary, and all too stereotypical.
The scene where the Russians attack through burning gasoline is compelling, but the final German assault, with tanks lined up together like an old cavalry charge, is militarily and historically absurd.
To sum up, it's a film worth watching for anyone with a casual interest in this battle,as long as high expectations are not present.

First, I have seen it in an IMAX cinema which is well worth to do even only for the stunning effect of the Stalingrad surrounding you as sure as hell.

If not, watching it at home is still the second best.

Warning: I have made an effort to make a no-spoilers review but still it contains some hints about the plot, etc.

Pros: a very good actors' work; a true no-sugar but very human portrait of Russian soldiers; a sharp contrast between a gentle 18-year girl and ash and fire around her; the state of the art visual effects; attention to every detail of the Stalingrad's reality, from uniforms to military training of the actors (they move like soldiers and use weapons like soldiers), from weapons to spoons (note: the tanks, of course, are not real German tanks so as it is the case with any WWII movie, the history maniacs are certainly going to "notice" this); a majority of the battle scenes is gripping and very realistic (and is based on the real events - including, I must notice, an attack of the burning Russian soldiers at the beginning of the movie).

Cons: the characters of the main heroes are not detailed (which, however, is the director's intentional choice); a love story of a German officer is something plugged in to show "the other side of the battle"; the German officer himself should have been separated into several people since otherwise he seems to be everywhere; SOME of the battle scenes (like killing a woman) lack, I would say, military (logical?) background.

I was impressed about the humanity portrait in this film.
Soldiers put to the utmost stress as human beings , portrait a wide range of reactions, that viewers will seldom see in combat movies. And that for both sides : Wehrmacht vs Soviet Army.
The German soldiers are being experienced as individuals, struggling with the racial doctrine with whom they have been brainwashed. The Directors idea of casting professional German actors, playing German officers, really pays off.
The special effects and combat scenes enhanced by CGI are breath taking and awesome.
Message of the film:
Every individual is loosing in War. There is only hardship and tragedy.

I've read many books, watched several documentaries and also watched the movie "Enemy at the Gates." as well as the German version of Stalingrad. Without question "Enemy at the Gates" is the most accurate followed very closely by the German "Stalingrad."
This movie does not show the political commissars machine gunning raw Russian recruits for retreating. It does not show the recruits charging into overwhelming German fire without a rifle. It does not show how brutal the battle really was. Perhaps someday a film company and director will get it right.

This is a not terrible & not exactly good--new film about the battle of Stalingrad. It focuses on one band of Russian soldiers defending a house from attacking German troops. When the battle scenes are shown (which is maybe 30% of the film) this is a very good movie. The rest of the movie/story tho was really memorable at all. Both the German & Russian side of the film have a love story thread going thru them neither of which adds anything to the film. The subtitles make no sense; the english grammer is either incorrect or out of order. But in the end, the dialogue spoken or the subtitles presented don't really matter. You can understand the story--kill or be killed/war is hell--without translation anyway so enjoy the visual look of the fim--which is great.
