    I'd like to point out that this really happened. That incident was taken directly from Zaitsev's memoirs ("There Was no Land for us Beyond Volga. Sniperís Notes").

    ĎAs the Nazis discovered a concentration of our infantry near a gasoline storage, they engaged by massed mortar and artillery fire. Then dive-bombing started. The gasoline storage was blazing in flame, fuel tanks began to explode, and ground caught fire. Giant bodies of flames were rushing about with thunderous roar above the lines of attacking sailors. Everything caught fire. Another minute and we all will turn into burning ember, firebrands...
    - Advance! Advance!
    The soldiers and sailors on fire tore off their burning clothes on the go but no one laid down his arms. It was an attack of burning naked people...Ď
    I still haven't watched the movie though - don't know how it was portrayed there.

    Saw it, badly infected by the Hollywoody virus and the desire of the Russians to immortalize themselves instead of just presenting the truth, didn't like it.

    Always seems to me that the Russian movies have a look to what Holywood did the worst,copy it and add a great amount of pathos,to create a movie that will be downed in flames in Europe.
    But hey,that's part of the great anti Russia western plot,no?

    Cross of Iron @ IMBD
    Yes. Movie's very good but the book is better.

    Ruskies, germans. What else do you need? The people who don't know history will go to see the actor and the action.

    Hollywood is still trying to apologize for Enemy at the Gates.

    At first I thought it was a joke. The poster looked like something out of Tropic Thunder or Hot Shots Part Deux, but then I realized it was just horribly dated.

    The trailer completely turned me off. As someone who is interested in history and the epic struggle of Stalingrad, I realized the movie wasn't targeted at me, but it was for 19 year-old Call of Duty players with the love interest thrown in so their girlfriends won't complain too much.
