That doesn't matter if you're Russian or not... are you historian or WWII' fan?
I'm and I'll tell you that the movie did sense only on an "Hero" and when you see Soviets soldiers be killed by their own officers when they retreated is totally FALSE!
That didn't happen in Stalingrad, they just would like to overdo about this battle of Stalingrad.
I know and everyone know that the war wasn't fun in Russia at this time, but it wasn't either in France or anywhere else.

I'm not here to talk about movies, but soundtracks and I'd say this score is good on every aspects, when you're listening it on this movie and outside of this movie.

You're saying the Russians didn't kill their own soldiers? I don't know who you think you are, giving that kind of information out.
The NKVD (later known as KGB) was responsible for thousands of executions of Soviet soldiers, during the second World War.
"Not a step backwards", truly was their policy at the time. Anyone who was suspected of any kind of offence towards the policy of the Party and the whole country, could get shot. An offence could be e.g. a self-made injury, deserting, sleeping on guard, drinking, refusing to attack, any kind of negative comment on the party or its policy, morale decreasing comments on the success of the fighting, the list goes on forever...

You should really do some background checking before coming here and giving out false information.

About the soundtarck: nice work from Horner, ***

Let's settle this...
For one the NKVD didn't bother killing the Soviet soliders, they were busy with the civil Soviet popluation and later persecuting the people of 'liberated' territories occupied by the USSR. The Soviet army was victimized by the MVD or secuirty ministry (which later became the GRU).

The NKVD (the latter-day 'Oprichnina')was also busy maintaining the 'gulag' labour camps at this time. Most of my relatives were very familar with this situation.

With both the MVD & NKVD, you be could killed for the most trivial of reasons, and you would have the "comfort" of knowing your friends and family would suffer with you.

Like most Russians (and others under Soviet control) anybody else who has connection to the time of Stalin would object to having these events trivilazed. The suffering was geniune. The problem with any modern film company that plans to 'dramatise' these events as opposed to presenting a documentary is going run the gauntlet and such crtisiscm.

As for the film, I feel it was an inaccurate telling of a true story. The period and technical details are correct.
