Just watched this movie yesterday and it was awesome. Much better than some American crap I saw. I didn't watch much Russian war movies and I didn't expect much, but this one blew my mind. With each minute it was more and more interesting.
The ending was a bit unexpected. I thought maybe one or two of them would survive, but as soon as I saw that they were in the attic of house, I knew it will end with total encirclement and elimination. Flamethrower!
I was a bit sad for the poor captured soldier from Leipzig, because I knew they would not let him go.
What I liked the most was the interaction and behavior of German soldiers. This is probably the first movie where you can hear enemy soldiers talk for a few minutes, not only saying a few typical, retarded lines.
The scene where the Germans hunt down one of the scouts that leads them away from the group was also interesting, particulary the way he dies.
All in all, it's not the greatest war movies, but whoever wants to see a war movie from the Russian side i would prefer this one.
