    Looks pretty good. There's a few scenes that look identical to "Enemy At The Gates", it has me wondering if they shot some of the scenes using the same set? One place in particular is the fountain with the four marble children statues.

    Well "the fountain with the four marble children statues" was a much photographed icon (if you will) of Stalingrad. Kind of like disaster films showing the Statue of Liberty for New York. It this case it's an especially poignant juxtaposition between war and peace. In short I think it’s a new set. LOL

    Well, the statute wouldn't be different although the He 111 crashed looks familiar.

    I just hope its not another "Pearl Harbor". It is kinda hard to beat the original "Stalingrad".

    The plane in "Enemy at the Gates" was a Si 204 made to look like a He 111

    Not sure what I think of the film just by watching this trailer, it could be either good or bad. My favourite film about the Eastern front is Come and See, it even has a FW189 in it, Cross of Iron is an old favourite.

    Cross of Iron was a great movie, the book is even better...definately check out either (or both) if you have a chance.

    Enemy At The Gates on-location set described by CinemaReview:
    The location of Stalingrad filming, according to wiki:
    So it looks like there's no connection between locations, but they sure look darn close as far as the finished product goes.

    Awesome! I often wondered about that myself and also identified it as a Si 204. Didn't make the link with a He 111 though. Why would you think that?

    Could be good, have to wait and see. At least one 'mortar man' wasn't trained properly for the movie though, judging by the brief clip in the trailer - you never put your hand over the muzzle of the mortar tube when loading a bomb!

    Spotted that right away, Terry...

    In a real world situation, that guy would have had a nasty surprise dangling at the end of his arm...

    Siebels were used as well as crew trainers, as liason and possibly when pushed, for night harrasment a/c's; why would they recreate a siebel and not hienkel in a film unless they are more ignorant than percieved... perhaps there was a crashed Siebel somewhere in Jugasvili's 'Steel City' (or was it Steal City - a joke to Iosefs younger banditry days).

    Well so long as its better than Braveheart, Battleship, Torque or Knights Templar, it can't be that bad - well that also depends upon if its more historical or more 'patriotic' than most other recent 'war' films.

    In all likelyhood they/it wasn't, more likey for liason if at all..., or a film related joke upon the amature sofa academics.
