Movie Reviews

Reviewed by fairviewed

The review of this film by whpratt1 is completely wrong. This film isnot critical of the Mujahadeen, but rather shows them struggling tofight for their freedom. The Soviet army is the oppressive evilpresence. This film was made during the Cold War, when Americans saw aline drawn in the sand between communism and capitalist democracy. Inthe film, the Soviets are clearly the bad guys, and the Mujahadeen arefighting the good fight. The main character comes to understand thisduring the film, finally telling his Soviet commanding officer that&quot;we're the Nazis this time.&quot;<br><br>During the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, the United States funded,supplied, and trained Mujahadeen forces. American stinger missiles wereused to shoot down Soviet helicopters. The most famous Mujahadeenfighter trained by the United States would come to be Osama bin Laden.He would participate in the fight against the Soviet army, much to theapproval of the United States. This film pays tribute to the Mujahadeenfor valiantly defending themselves against America's enemy. The factthat the United States has invaded Afghanistan makes the film much moreinteresting to watch. It is ironic that these militants once praised byHollywood are now our enemies. The lesson this film should teach usnow, albeit inadvertently, is that we should be careful who we glorifyand who we vilify. Humans will be humans, and will fight for what they*believe* is right, sometimes whether it actually is right or not.

This neglected and largely unknown anti-war film, ranks as one of the bestof the genre. Since other posters have commented extensively on this movie,I'll limit myself to a few comments about those elements others have notaddressed.<br><br>In it my understanding from material I read at the time the movie was inrelease (I saw it in Los Angeles when I was living there in the late 80s)that the actors who portrayed Afghanis learned and delivered their linesphonetically. The fact that the &quot;Russians&quot; sound like Americans, and theAfghans are speaking the language without subtitles is a brilliant dramaticdevice. Virtually no one is going to understand what the Afghanis areactually saying, but it is possible to get the gist from the context andfrom body language. This has the effect of alienating the viewer from thefreedom fighters and making them tend to identify with the Russian tankcrew. The movie then operates subversively against this natural tendencythroughout the remainder of the story.<br><br>The hunting of the tank by the Mujahadeen has an almost mythic quality,except for the fact that the T-62 is real and it has a human crew. Andleading that crew is the tank commander whose entire life was shaped by hisexperiences in &quot;The Great Patriotic War&quot; against the Nazis when, as an8-year-old, he was used by Russian troops in Stalingrad to help kill Germantanks. The commander is as monomaniacal as Ahab, but instead of pursuingthe whale, he is it's animating spirit.<br><br>There are a lot of layers to this movie -- it will definitely repay repeatviewings.

A very enjoyable film! Reynolds captures the essence of man's strugglewith right &amp; wrong, good &amp; evil, on several levels in this realisticdepiction of the Soviet-Afghan conflict. It was both meaningful andentertaining. I gave it an 8.<br><br>The internal conflicts of the characters reflect the many ways thatpeople reconcile and deal with their emotions and beliefs vis-&agrave;-vis theroles thrust upon them by war and duty- the soldier, the faithful, thevictim, the oppressor, the revenge-seeker and the order-follower. Eachmain character struggles at some point with his or her decisions in theface of right and wrong, duty and morality. It is the results of thesechoices that guide the film to transcend the events of war, and delveinto the universal questions of how and why man struggles with real andpainful choices.<br><br>Although the film does prove to be quite predictable, the underlyingmessages are timeless and well depicted. A moving story with goodcharacter development artistically filmed and approached realistically.The brutality and violence of war is not gratuitous, and the anti-warmessage is delivered superbly.<br><br>I highly recommend this film to all audiences... not just war-filmbuffs. With the US presence in Afghanistan today, the film should serveto help understand that conflict and this one in regards to the humancomponents that are so often overlooked.<br><br>A note regarding other user's comments: The film was subtitled. Itseems that some saw it without the subtitles for some reason. If youare one of those people, you really must view it with them. Rent it. Icannot imagine truly understanding the full scope of the film withoutthe benefit of the Afghan dialog. Also, the &quot;Americanization&quot; of thesoviet dialog not only serves to draw parallels between that conflictand the Vietnam War, but it universalizes the struggles of war andallows the viewer to empathize on a human level- not just a politicalone. In our long human history, how often have these basic humanconflicts occurred... particularly in times of war and oppression andinjustice?
