!Enemy at the Gates!

Though war glorification doesnt interest me much, I was spellbound by this particular movie! Its really difficult to come across such quality movies often.
The move is a tribute to the Russian sniper hero Vasily Zaytsev and his exploits during the 2nd WW. From the narrow survival after a suicidal charge against the Germans to becoming a legendary sniper... the film displays a splendid sketch of the development phases of this soldier... The warfare is shown to get worse due to the personal rivalry between Stalin and Hitler and hence each camp goes overboard to chart out strategies to fox their rivals...

The sniper deployed by the German forces proves to be too smart for our hero.... Honestly I was more influenced by the German sniper Erwin Konig who is aptly portrayed by Ed Harris! Most part of the movie showcases the personal rivalry between the two
and their thirst to outsmart one another.....

Their guile and wit keep the movie on the fast lane while Rachel Weisz makes sure theres enough spice! Vasily's heroics become legendary and is used to boost the morale of the Russian camp.... Theres an interesting love triangle and its easy to guess the eventual pair.... The movie definitely makes u realize that a marksman's job is not just a cakewalk.... Though you know whos going to triumph eventually.... the cunning rivalry between the two snipers is worth a watch... The gruesome atmosphere of a battle field is genuinely felt and is really hard to forget!
The movie ends with the announcement that he Germans have retreated and the Russians have emerged triumphant. Stalingrad was awarded the title Hero City in 1945.

Vasily was not a born hero, he was made!!!
