I did not like this movie and i do not recommend seeing it on the big screen. My Russian boyfriend dragged me to see this movie and I wish I put my foot down and said no. Anyway, the film was overblown, melodramatic, and the story wasn’t good, it was all about special effects and big spectacle. I actually found it to be quite offensive, given that the film turns one of the bloodiest battles of the WWII into a special-effects-enhanced blockbuster. My boyfriend seemed to like the film and he said that he was proud that Russians made such a big and epic film but I wish they paid more attention to the screenplay instead of focusing so much on the special effects.
