Goofs

Captain Kan mentions how he had once been invited to meet Field Marshal Paulus. The problem is the movie takes place in November 1942 and Paulus was only a General at that time. Adolf Hitler didn't promote him to Field Marshal until January 1943, thinking that a Field Marshal would never surrender...He was quite wrong about that, Paulus surrendered to the Russians the very next day.

Stalingrad- A missed opportunity

For the story, I give this movie a 5/10. I was a little bored by it. However, for the fighting, this movie gets a 8/10. This movie has some of the best fighting scenes I have ever seen. The visuals also are truly some of the best I have ever seen. Any future war movie needs to borrow from this movies visuals. I can't overstate how blown away visually the combat was.

This movie deserves better than a 5.6. I can understand a low rating for the boring scenes in between the fighting, but its just too low for what its really worth. It is clear this movie missed the mark in delivering a good story as well as making us truly love the characters who were rather still good. More fighting and less sitting around would have done this movie far better.
