While the Nazi and Russian armies hurl rank after rank of soldiers at each other and the world fearfully awaits the outcome of the battle of Stalingrad, the celebrated Russian sniper Vassili Zaitsev (Jude Law) quietly stalks his enemies one man at a time. His fame, however, soon thrusts him into a duel with the Nazi's best sharpshooter, Major Konig (Ed Harris), and the two find themselves waging an intense personal war while the most momentous battle of the age rages around them...

Zaitsev features briefly in the book of "Enemy At The Gates" but is the perfect human story to focus on the Stalingrad meat grinder. The other refreshing aspect of the film is the attempt at telling a Russian viewpoint of WW2.
The opening is suitably horrific-no doubt influenced by "Saving Private Ryan" but falls short due to the average sound design and the annoying Cockney Commisars who usher Jude Law into battle without a rifle and at the end of a machine gun. And thats the problem. As soon as the actors open their north and souths all realism is lost.
What's worse is that two of the most average actors this country has ever produced-Fiennes and Weisz turn the film into a knock about love triangle which smacks of TV movie.
The whole mess is nearly saved by the entrance of Ed Harris as Zaitsev's nemesis who in real life may or may not be the boss of the Zotzen sniper school-but even he can't rescue a film that resembles a trip down to Albert Square via The Winds of War.

This war film is very loosly based on actual events. The Stalingrad setting is very bleak, and very realistic in the way the City was held under seige for so long. The cold winter setting is also great and only adds to the atmosphere. But the best thing about the film is the unrelenting cat and mouse game Jude Law (the Russian Sniper) and Ed Harris (The German Sniper) play, in the bombed out buildings. There is also a great James Horner Music score, that plays like a hybrid of all his other music scores, where you can pick up the odd bout of Aliens, and Titanic playing in the background. But what stops this film from being the classic it should be is by some of the very dodgy accents, worst being Bob Hoskins. But the biggest problem is the tagged on love story, that really does feel out of place with what should be a epic and lean war movie. It realy does get in the way of the exploding heads we all want to see. But still with all it's obviouse faults, this is a great evenings war torn entertainment.
