Review
It's 1942 and the Russians and Germans are deep into the bloody mire of the siege of Stalingrad. Vassili is a simple Russian soldier with a remarkable skill, he's an excellent sniper. Political officer, Danilov, expands on Vassili's accomplishments, creating a hero to boost the morale of his fellow comrades. But when both men fall in love with the same woman Danilov becomes dangerously jealous and to compound Vassili's problems the Germans send in the best sniper they have, Major Konig, to silence his deadly muzzle. The sets of Enemy At The Gate are suitably impressive, as are the action sequences, but the drama is painfully clich├ęd and the romance could have done with one of the story's many bullets.
