Gratuitous Llama Netflix Movie Review


Enemy at the Gates (2001)

I suppose the only reason I'm bothering to mention my first viewing of this film at all is so that I can use the line "Saving Private Ivan," which has always amused me.

Too bad the movie wasn't of comparable calibre. The battle scenes looked like, well, Hollywood-staged battle scenes, the "cat and mouse" game between Zaitsev and König never really grasped my attention, the love triangle among the Ruskies was vapid and why the hell wasn't Ed Harris allowed to use a fake German accent?

Bright spot? Bob Hoskins as Khrushchev. That was one meeeeean motorcycle.

Don't think I'll bother with it again, tho'.

Yips from Steve-O: You forgot to mention the dirty fingernails scene. Yikes.

Heck, when I feel the need for a Rachel fix, I just rent the Mummy movies. Much more entertaining and no hygeine issues.

Bill gets his cash when he shows up at Lamapalooza on Saturday. (Ahem.)
