        3.0 out of 5 stars For fans of such strips in order, 7th April 2010

        ( REAL NAME )

        Review relates to: Special unit Werewolf ( DVD)
        In recent times, some even come to cinematic material from Russia. So far, a lot of fun stuff was there , but also some misses . Here, as once again have a war film of a story from the time of the second World War told.
        In 1942, the Germans are realizing this is a special project that the increase will be instrumental in the East. They build the so -called bunker werewolf . The Russians know this, and want to send a special unit that takes over the bunker. After this is happening, they should prepare the leader himself , who is invited to the opening, a fiery reception. But the journey is dangerous there , especially since it turns out that one of the men spied for the Nazis.
        This Russian / Ukrainian co-production of director Evgen Mitrofanov was certainly a version of the classic " The Dirty Dozen "are . Unfortunately " special unit Werewolf " directed to ensure unloving. The entire presentation leaves me rather suggest that this is a TV movie. While the white stripes to amuse thoroughly , and has made not much more neutral, but the actors sometimes seem just listless, and also the German Synchro is sometimes a bit too much. Here are some committed speaker, the better off doing something to work, where you must not talk. All in all, good solid war action , but offers no highlights, and especially in the fight scenes a little more steam could tolerate . The historical backgrounds are sure to call rather than vague and therefore of historical interest rather uninteresting.

The Second World War has been murdering a good month to end, but still pull armed armed services around the country who carry out attacks from ambush , and attempt in the direction of the Allied lines held Trans .

This one has not reckoned with the number still fighting strength of the Germans.

          Action- adventure from a Russian war movie factory. The script must be quite a twist to make bloody skirmishes after the war between young and advised of plans for civilian life, forging and the scattered remains of Red Army soldiers of the defeated army to the desired David versus Goliath situation. But one has got used to the idea only once , takes an exciting scavenger hunt with enthusiastic performers and well-staged battles its course. Is Hollywood war movies after only in terms of star power.

          Review relates to: Death squad Russia 3 ( DVD)
          A very interesting film that touches on the underlying problems of the multinational Soviet Union. In purely military is also convincing
          Part II of these films with realism and quiet heroism. The representation
          the Germans, I felt as realistic and tactically clever . Yes the American Bin -
          African heroes representation ( action heroes ) is missing here. And that I find soothing. Anyone could be hit by bullets and also for errors
          worst possible time ( even after the war ended die ). Great,
          how this tremendous inner conflict was portrayed as quiet and yet present.

          • Attack on Leningrad



            The one above is just the Movie disrtributed in the west.
            There is also the miniseries, where the movie was cut from.
            There is no english subtitled version for the miniseries, but I do recomand to watch it.
            You will find that the whole story is more focused on another story, than the one told in the movie.

            Here is the german and UK version:
            http://www.amazon.de/Attack-Leningra...019855&sr=1-87

              Even if it screams the title of the roofs, Alexander is not a crusader . Rather, the Russian hero stands in the fight against the German knights . The implementation of the Russian spectacle is very expensive. The costumes look authentic , the fight scenes are implemented with a lot of momentum and achieve realistic proportions, swords and the like are not meant for fighting filigree . Sergei Eisenstein filmed the story of Alexander Nevsky before. This new version, which is well with international productions à la Braveheart or ARN - can be measured by the Crusaders in terms of implementation effort and is prepared dramatic and apparently has been realized with a high budget. Conclusion : A small gem from Russia.
              Movie Mans commentary on the DVD : Good colors , with some gerarbeitet with filters is what puts the event will turn yellow ( 00:20:51 ). Noise is only minimally present, and the compression works perfectly well apart from a few glitches . The template is very well preserved. The audio is in Russian concise . In German, distort the dialogue a little and clean sound clinical. The only bonus is the trailer and some pictures. - movieman . de

              4.0 out of 5 stars The Battle on the Neva, 17th October 2009
              By time diver ® " Ronald Funck " ( Offenbach am Main, Europe) - All my reviews
              ( TOP 50 REVIEWER )

              Review relates to: Alexander the Crusaders - DVD ( DVD)
              In 1236 , the Rurik Dynasty Alexander of Kostroma ( 1120-1263 ) from the veche ( town meeting ) to the city of Novgorod Knyaz (Herzog called ). After he had on his Druzhina 15/07/1240 ( followers ) led victorious from the battle on the Neva against a Swedish invasion army under Birger Magnusson of Bjälbo ( 1210-1266 ), he received his nickname of " Nevsky ". With another military victory on the fifth April 1242 on the ice of frozen Peipusees succeeded Alexander Nevsky an army of the Teutonic Order , together with allied Danes and Estonians to annihilate , and thus the Catholic mission plans for the Orthodox Russia to put a final end. As Grand Duke he also managed a peaceful settlement with the Mongols. In 1547 he was canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church holy and is still regarded as a national hero .....

              .... in light of these historical facts , the director Igor Kalenov his " Aleksandr. Nevskaya Bitva " staged , on 1 May 2008, first performed in Russia. From the aptly English title " Alexander : The Neva Battle " for the German DVD is finally the misleading title "Alexander the Crusaders ".....

              ..... because its western and northern European opponents , Eric XI. (The lisping & lame ) of Sweden and the German Teutonic Knights would force the Orthodox " heretics " convert to "right ", ie the Roman Catholic faith. In the film, Alexander is of Roman Catholic monks, a book about the " exploits during the Crusades in Palestine handed , "which he is outraged back . The film shows the history and the actual battle on the Neva. Important individual events are identified with date and location special. These include treason and collaboration with the Swedes and an assassination attempt on Alexander. While convince Anton Pampushny (Alexander ) and his friend Igor Botvin ( Ratmir can ), the 52 year old Valeri Kukhareshim as King Eric miscast as this is then have been only 34 years . A good acting performance as the deaf and dumb shows Andrey Fyodortsov jester Kornily will warn his Fürtsen against a poison attack . To 110minütigen action includes the unhappy love Ratmir to Aleksandra Bryachislavna , when he appeared as a suitor for Alexander . Ratmir is suspected of conspiracy and falls out of favor with the prince . Rehabilitated and he finds himself one on the battlefield. The Russian scenario with Kremlin Novgorod boyars , their clothing , weapons , armor, pp. rises managed by usual standards of the medieval western Europe from . The fight scenes are determined by a fast camera work ....

              ..... The subsequent battle on the frozen Peipusee is simply told in the credits, so that " Alexander the Crusaders "is not true to get a remake of the Soviet propaganda film Alexander Nevsky in 1938. Nevertheless, it has the support of a national pathos , with the " good " Alexander the one hand and the "evil "Sweden and German knights on the other.

              In addition to the synchronized German , you can also view the film in the original Russian version with or without German subtitles. 3 - Super Stars for an entertaining film, which - despite misleading pp German title - with a few small details (such as log homes , long boats continues. ) to the historical facts.

                It's very rare, and has become a collectors item.
                I have a VHS copy of it in my store.

                But Checkist does not equal Commissar. The Commissar is a diffrent movie about a pregnant female red army Commissar, during the russian civil war.
                That has to stay behind in a small village, soon to be occupied by the white army.

                  • yes, now the brand new movie "The Brest Fortress" is distributing in Russian cinemas.

                    The Brest fortress was the Soviet Alamo.

                    The movie is based on real facts and many famous actors play in it.

                    The Soviet soldiers of a few different units were disposed inside of the Brest Fortress which situated right on the Soviet-German border by June 22nd of 1941.

                    It was not planned to defend the fortress by all those forces, the Brest Fortress was used as a barracks for those units.

                    The sudden German attack in morning of June 22nd 1941 turned all those people in defenders of the fortress.

                    And they fought for a month while the frontline was far away and was moving further to east every day.

                    There is a famous inscription in a wall inside of the fortress "I am dying but do not surrender. Farewell, Motherland! July, 22nd".

                    A few defenders including Major Gavrilov survived the war being captured wounded.

                    Only in 50th the Soviet people knew about the feat of the defenders of the fortress.

                    The Brest Fortress have got the rank of Fortress-Hero.

                    I myself haven't seen it but according all the info I have got it looks like it is an excellent movie.

                              • Has anyone seen these new russian films ?

                                1.) KRAY (The Edge) new russian DVD + CD film english sub`s:

                                The action takes place shortly after the end of the Second World War in the Siberian hinterland, among Russians and Germans with damaged personal stories and a strange transformation: the victors seem to be crawling into the skins of the defeated, and vice versa. Ignat, is the embodiment of the larger-than-life image of the Soviet victorious warrior who, in fact, proves to be shell-shocked, sick and broken, although not completely destroyed. Trains become fetish for the heroes of the film, and speed becomes a mania; they virtually become one with their steam engines, while the machines take on human names. The heroes set up an almost fatal race in the Siberian forest, risking their own lives and those of others.

                                2.) CAPTIVE (Plennyy) - Russian War Drama (Eng Subs) - NEW

                                Based on Vladimir Makanin's The Prisoner from the Caucasus CAPTIVE focuses on the folly of war in an intimate, startling way. In modern times, the Russian soldiers are trapped in the vast Chechen landscape, stifling in the heat, lost in hostile, alien surrounds. The handsome, laconic commander Rubakhin and the playful sniper Vovka need a guide to lead their convoy to safety. They seize a local, beautiful boy, who becomes their passport to safety, but must pay a terrible price. And his captors will not escape from the incident unscathed either.
