• In Response to: Enemy at the Gates (Andrew Abrahamson)

I just thought this was the best war movie I had seen since Ted Turner's "Gettysburg." I think a lot of Americans have trouble with the story because there are no Americans in it, but the tale of the Battle of Stalingrad and the sniper duel that erupted is a fantastic story of resolve, courage and human tragedy. The characters of Vasili Zaitsev and Major Konigs were very well portrayed in the movie. I also thought the re-creation of the battle was excellent in that the scenery made you sort of feel you were there. The crossing across the Volga River by the Red Army troops was better done than the storming of Normandy on D-Day in "Saving Private Ryan," although I suspect many of my fellow Americans had trouble identifying with a battle of wits between foreign armies and foreign snipers. Too bad. They missed a real thriller.
