Enemy at the Gates
During WWII the fall of Stalingrad would have meant the collapse of the whole country. The Germans and Russians fought over every block. In this movie Russian sniper Vassili Zaitsev stalks the German officers, taking them out one by one. He becomes a hero to his countrymen. A master German sniper is sent in to kill him. A young Russian boy, Sacha Filipov (Gabriel Thomson) acts as a go-between for the two snipers.

I was shocked at the end when Sacha met his demise!My Movie Rating: 9 / 10
A very realistic war movie depicting the carnage at Stalingrad. Despite the unnecessary drag on the plot by Jude Law's romancing, the battle scenes and sniping suspense is kept to a high standard. Gabriel Marshall-Thomson's character of Sacha, the boy runaround/boot polisher, who serves both the Russians and the Germans was playing a dangerous game and I'm not surprised he came to a sticky end. (How could Ed Harris have done such a thing?)I had never seen this boy actor before. I'm sure Krushchev was not quite the villain shown nor did the Russian army shoot it's own retreating soldiers.My Movie Rating: 7 / 10
