Enemy At The Gates

Enemy At The GatesBB.5

(out of 5)


plays a Russian soldier from the sticks whose skills as a marksman help the Red Army single-handedly protect Stalingrad from German invasion.  is the urban intellectual whose fervent propagandizing of Law’s achievements makes the sniper a hero and makes the two men the closest of friends. Trouble is afoot, however, when both fall in love with beautiful  and everything is put on the line. Like all of Jean-Jacques Annaud’s films, this is a lushly beautiful (despite the cold Russian weather), sumptuously produced period piece, but the characterizations are dull and the story is quite boring. Features  impressively playing Khrushchev.
