Outstanding!
Russian Tank Movie
Happy Veteran's day.

Move over Hollywood. Russia is filling the role you abdicated.

Just watched it on Amazon Prime.

Acting was sub-par, character development was non-existent, storyline made absolutely no sense.

Entertainment value wise, I enjoyed it but it's not winning any awards in my book

Well, I enjoyed the heck out of it.

Of course the story was absurd, but enjoyable.

The best stomachs are not those which reject all food.

I liked that it lacked all the crappy contrivances of a hollywood movie. When they turned the key, the tank actually starts.
When the fire the gun, the shell actually fires. American movies suck so bad, they make Russian movies look good.

And no virtue signalling transgender hero. Actual white men playing competent roles. And some actual words from the bible recited.

Finally watched it on Amazon Video. Hokey dialog (possible fault of the translation and bad voice-acting/dubbing?? Guessing the original was in Russian & German, so I'll never know...). Over-the-top & improbable plot. Great action.

The Nazi bad guy -- a cunning, ruthless kraut tank commander (lol! he even has scars on his face!) -- was excellent. Someone you can relish hating, but respect. So many plot hole, great and small, but after a bit, you don't care. You just root for the likeable underdog crew, with its intuitive lieutenant Russian commander (described by the opposition as "a magician"), with all the odds stacked against them. There's even a girl thrown into the mix. Believably done, but mostly a side distraction.

Last word: the CGI "camera" work on the tank projectiles was... different. Made it seem like a video game at time. Kinda annoying, but once you get a little used to it, it adds a new dimension to the armor battles. Mixed bag, though.

Overall, it was quite entertaining. Grade: B- (3.2 out of 5 stars)
[Hey, what can I say? I'm an easy grader ]

Good recommend, Justme11! Thx.

it was obviously a Russian produced movie, similar to the pro war stuff the US produces.
Like everything Russian, it is kind of clunky. But I got a kick out of seeing through their camera lens.

Not quite as bad as a Rambo movie for implausibility, but in that ball park. a fun ride.

At least not another "woke" movie.

I'd bet that polar bear isn't all that happy to be a walking billboard.

It was ok.

Fury was better if you like WW2 / tank movies and haven't seen it.

I just discovered this, by Haynes Manuals: T-34 Tank Owners' Workshop Manual


That's hilarious!! Like any ordinary individual would just happen to have a T-34 laying around in their backyard that needs a bit a work...

I discovered, too, that Haynes has "owners manuals" on all kinds of WW2 hardware, such as the Stuka, Panzer III, the Flak 88, etc. What a clever & interesting way to disseminate history and make some money at the same time! Isn't the free enterprise great?

[They're a smidge pricey, at $23-$28... I wonder if they have any at the local public library?]

I would love a Battle of Kursk big-budget movie, but since it didn't involve the U.S. directly it'll probably never get made.

^^^ There are a lot of WW2 stories to be told; huge amounts of money to be made, **if** someone with deep pockets and a sound, historical eye, decides to do it. T-34 was made in the Czech Republic, whose filming industry seems fast-becoming to be a viable alternative to Hollywood... without all the crazy SJW crap.

I had to turn it off 1/2 way. Couldn't hack the stilted language and cheap CGI attempts. I will check out Fury sometime soon.

You might be interested in some of the WWII era "Warbird Checkout" movies. They are the actual movies shown to new pilots to familiarize them with the basics of operating a WWII aircraft. They start with the walk around, then the cockpit, then flight characteristics like how the bird stalls, and when to activate the two-stage superchargers, etc.
These aircraft were the ultimate development of piston power, while at the same time they were stripped to the bone to enable maximum combat performance. In some of the early versions, the pilot had to manually pump the landing gear up and down. Those planes are nothing like modern civilian piston pumpers.

If your going to go down the ww2 youtube hole, what man doesnt need to know how to assemble a p47 thunderbolt in the field?


Or possibly my favorite vid, a german infantry training film on how to take on soviet tanks with an anti tank raincoat, anti tank crowbar, anti tank grease, anti tank hat and anti tank wedges. It had to be a depressing watch for nazi soldiers thinking they were going to be shown something that might stop the onslaught of Kv and T34 russian tanks
