A good cat and mouse game.
Ed Harris (the Nazi) and Jude Law (the Russian) are matched against each other as World War II snipers serving their countries. Joseph Fiennes is also good in a pivotal role as is Bob Hoskins as Nikita Khrushchev and Rachel Weisz as a strong female character. This is a compelling look at the constantly needed reminder that simply, war is terrible and the innocent victims that suffer is even more tragic. Director Jean-Jacques Annaud’s still framed direction has always lacked a depth of character development but he still makes admirable films for the high end lovers of film art.
brilliantly flawed … is still brilliant
In the grand tradition of Old Hollywood, this international co-production seeks to frame the key battle of WW2 (the REAL key battle, not the ones from the John Wayne movies) as a morality tale involving a love triangle.
It is a bold idea, and beautifully executed.
In fact an argument could be made — and I will make it — that any flaws in the execution (it lags a bit here and there) are the result of the film-makers’ “reach exceeding their grasp” and they attempted too much, more than one film could ever accomplish.
But what a film it is! You viewer feel as though you are there, making history. The four stars involved have, each of them, never given a bad performance in their careers and they surely maintain their records here.
Ed Harris in particular — although he has less screen time — will always to this reviewer seem a vastly under-rated actor. (This review written in 2017 where an older Harris still uses his charisma in a defining role for HBOs Westworld …. and nails it.) Recommended? Absolutely! In the Metacritic data that IMDb so helpfully provides I could not help but notice one reviewer commenting that, well, it sure isn’t in the same class as SAVING PRIVATE RYAN.
Which is the irony of doing film reviews. I have never not once thought of wanting to see SAVING PRIVATE RYAN again, but this film is one I like to revisit every few years. Magnificent.
