Enemy at the gates is one of those films at the end of which either your dead or your alive. Either your truley madly deeply in love or betrayed by your bretheren. Either you’r a young kids dead body hanging on the pole or you’r a mother unaware of her childs death, either way your one of the characters of the film. If theres ever a film that sucks you in, this is bloody well one of them.
Its the true story of Hitlers attack on Stalingrad (1942) during the second world war. Vassili Zytsev is a young man brought up in the ice covered hills of russia, taught shooting by his grandfather. At a time when retreating soldiers were considered as traitors and shot by their own countrymen, Vassili brings in something that motivates the dead spirit of the red army. He brings in hope. He becomes a hero when people desperately need one. He single handedly snipes a large number of Nazi personnels and trains many more to be like him.
An experienced sniper of the Nazi army is called to end the Vassili story. Through some insider information, he knows exactly where hes going to be and waits for him. A battle begins between two sniper rifles and two pairs of eyes that dare not blink. Sounds exciting enough? if not then its my fault. If you’r a war films lover, you ought to see this one to be called one, if not, well its a good time to become one. A must watch for people interested in the red army history, the fact that its a true story make it all the more fantastic. A scene where one sniper can see the other through a mirror is just brilliant. The sets are great and flawless. If youv seen some war films, youd know how foolish editing can destroy a great film. Highly recomended.
