      Enemy at the Gates is a superior movie, combining outstanding war set-pieces and an authentic backdrop, with the heart of a sniper movie. Although some might argue that this dilutes both aspects, I think that the film is possibly the best sniper movie I have ever seen, and a pretty good war movie too, even if not a mould-breaker. On Blu-ray I have to say I expected it to look marginally better, although at least the soundtrack is something of an improvement. The same lacklustre extras disappoint even more so here than they did on DVD but overall this is still a movie worth adding to your collection. Recommended, particularly for fans of sniper films!

      I found the cockney accents a big turn off- ruined any chance of authenticity. I felt the same for Valkyrie- why don't the directors at least try to make the actors put on an accent- maybe they are worried about the American audience being confused.

      Because that'd be even worse, quite frankly. :nono:
