I really wanted this movie to be worth watching. The plot looked great, the setting (WWII Eastern Front) has always been one of my favorite topics in history. This movie does have a great storyline, but it looks like they were trying too hard or had zero budget. The scenes are far too contrived, the war action looks completely fake, and the actors are a bit too hard to take seriously. The "German", which was obviously dubbed in by Russians, was awful (I speak both languages). Even someone who does not speak either language could easily hear how awful that dialog is. They couldn't find ANY real German actors in all of Russia???
After months of exhausting trench warfare, most of Major Belyaev's battalion was destroyed. The area is ruled by German aces snipers. Hope for replenishment collapses when the convoy, in which the Soviet snipers were traveling, falls under a German airstrike. A handful of soldiers and a young hunter from Yakutia, Yegor Cheerin, survive.—themoviedb
