Enemy at the Gates

  • I really should have stayed in bed today...

Based on a true story which took place during the German attack on Stalingrad in World War II, we follow the adventures of a simple ex-shepherd who is a crack marksman. Morale amongst the Russians was at an all-time low, when a propaganda officer stumbled across the marksman and decided to turn him into a hero as a motivational tool. The shepherd merely did his job, in awe of the legend built up around him. After knocking off too many Germans, the Nazis shipped in a crack marksman of their own to take care of him. To make matters more complicated, the shepherd and the propaganda officer both fall in love with the same woman...

Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: The North American critics were not kind to this movie, the British reviews which I read were much more flattering. I was impressed with the attention to detail and level of realism, this film brought over the horror of war much more powerfully than say, Pearl Harbor did. It was a little slow, the trailer lead me to believe the pace would be quicker. As in Pearl Harbor, there is a love triangle, but thankfully there is no ''Ra-Ra America'' (or Russia or Germany), only desperate men doing desperate things to survive.
