Yes, very unusual movie. Russians don't really like talking about the Afghan War.

Worth seeing if you haven't seen it.

Good movie. If possible, watch in Russian with subtitles rather than dubbed. As with Das Boot, the dubbing is kinda shit.

Get it. It was a pretty good movie. I couldn't find a copy of it the last few times I've went to Hastings.

Decent movie, fairly hollywood style.

I like Grozovye Vorota better though...nothing like a twin mount firing at a pesky sniper for the win...

I think I've seen it.. seen several CCCP war movies

they usually have some good weapons (personal/armor/aircraft) better than a lot of US Army training materials

Watched it several months ago on Netflix. Think it's still on there. Pretty good movie.

Can't seem to find that one on Amazon. Or at least, I think I can but it says unavailable. Was that Chechnya or Afghanistan? Sounds like I hear a "Grozny" in the title.

ETA: Is this what you are referring to? If so, looks like the whole thing is on the youtubes.

ETA 2: No subtitles though. Blegh. I'll have to keep it on my list and see if I can find a copy somewhere.

Chechnya. I've got a copy here somewhere, never could get it to play. The only place I've seen it is on youtube, but it's still worth the watch.

This version does have subtitles...not great ones, but enough to get the gist.

Go to the 26:00 mark for some twin mount goodness lol

I must be missing something. When do the subtitles start? I can't see shit on the screen. Or do I have to turn on Youtube's CC and go that route?

ETA: N/M. Looks like YT's closed captioning works, so I assume that's what you were referring to. Thanks a lot for the tip! Looks interesting so far.

Seen it, great movie, crazy action.

Grozovye Vorota was very good too but the subtitles when I saw it were god-awful. Barely enough to give a general idea of what they are saying; just enough to get the point across.

Thumbs Up.

I saw it. Pure cheese. Reminds me of American military movies made in the 1950s.

That said, it gives insight into the Russian attitudes/expectations regarding military operations and training.

Apparently their DI's drink. A lot.

Great movie.

Long watch, but great movie.



Entirely worth $2.

9th Company is a good movie. I learned about it here a few years ago.

Link Posted: 12/14/2013 4:11:10 AM EST
I watched it last year got a copy from my nephew, unfortunatly it was all in russian but if you pay attention you pretty much get the idea.
Link Posted: 12/14/2013 6:14:16 AM EST
Mix of The Green Berets, Full Metal Jacket, Platoon, and the A Team. Highly fictionalized story of a Soviet company. Entertaining. Lot's of gun action and some female nudity.
Link Posted: 12/14/2013 7:49:32 AM EST
I am about halfway through it, entertaining so far.

Long movie
