From Amazon.co.uk

Enemy at the Gates opens with a pivotal event of World War II--the German invasion of Stalingrad--recreated in Saving Private Ryan-like epic scale as ill-trained Russian soldiers face German attack or punitive execution if they flee from the enemy's advance. Director Jean-Jacques Annaud captures this madness with urgent authenticity, creating a massive context for a more intimate battle waged amidst the city's ruins. Embellished from its basis in fact, the story shifts to an intense cat-and-mouse game between a Russian shepherd raised to iconic fame, and a German marksman whose skill is unmatched in its lethal precision. Vassily Zaitzev (Jude Law) has been sniping Nazis one bullet at a time, while the German Major Konig (Ed Harris) has been assigned to kill Vassily and spare Hitler from further embarrassment. There's love in this war, too, as Vassily connects with a woman soldier (Rachel Weisz), but she is also loved by Danilov (Joseph Fiennes), the Soviet officer who promotes his friend Vassily as Russia's much-needed hero. This romantic rivalry lends marginal interest to the central plot, but it's not enough to make this a classic war film. Instead it's a taut, well-made suspense thriller isolated within an epic battle, and although Annaud and cowriter Alain Godard (drawing from William Craig's book and David L Robbins' novel The War of the Rats) fail to connect the parallel plots with any lasting impact, the production is never less than impressive. Highly conventional but handled with intelligence and superior craftsmanship, this is warfare as strategic entertainment, without compromising warfare as a man-made hell on Earth. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

On the DVD: with a choice of Dolby 5.1 or DTS the sound is suitably spectacular (James Horner's Prokofiev-inspired score comes up well amid whizzing bullets and explosions), while the 2.35:1 anamorphic picture makes the best of the epic battle sequences. "Through the Crosshairs" is a standard 20-minute behind-the-scenes documentary, which is complemented by "Inside Enemy at the Gates", a 15-minute montage of interviews with the stars and director. There's also a 25-minute French-made documentary (with English subtitles) about the real battle that includes a short interview with the real Vassily Zaitsev. Eight brief deleted scenes can be played separately or neatly inserted into the movie by pressing Enter when the gun sight icon appears on screen. The commentary by director Jean-Jacques Annaud is as informative as might be expected from a director who always seems passionate about his film projects. Storyboards, posters, a trailer and filmographies round out an excellent disc package. --Mark Walker

**For UK buyers of the Blu Ray import with the red cover, this US disc is region free and works on UK Blu Ray players.**
I love this film and have seen it multiple times since it was released so long ago so I wanted to get it on blu ray with some urgency, and here it is, the quality is excellent, full 1080p with a razor sharp picture, a must have.

I really enjoyed Enemy At The Gates On blu ray as the captured the WW2 German invasion in Russia really well. The Russians are desperate to get the people to fight and not lose Stalingrad city at any cost. They need a hero so they get one and his name is Vassili Zaitzev played by Jude Law. He is a sniper who learned everything from his granddad. He becomes the peoples hero and challenges the Germans with his sniping skills. The Russians fight hard and things get more serious as the Germans bring in a Sniper Specialist them selves Major Konig played by Ed Harris. Some other great actors star in this movie too such as Joseph Fiennes who plays as Danilov A political officer and Rachel Weisz that plays as Tania.The story becomes complicated as both guys fall in love with Tania. The story gets better so I wont spoil it any more for anyone. Now the blu ray picture quality: The facial detail is great but the movie has a lot of grain especially in darker scenes. Nothing that you will make you not watch it just something obvious. As I said before the Facial detail and sound are really good. Overall is a great movie that definitely should be bought. Its a very well done movie and you will enjoy it. For the price you cant go wrong. For guys in the UK this blu ray will work on your machines with no problems. Great seller and fast delivery from the US. Thank You.

Format: DVD
Aside from a very dodgy ariel shot in the film's opening battle sequence, the special effects here are so superbly implemented as to be seamless - it simply looks like the producers bombed a 1940s Russian City and took some cameras into the devastation. Only the later scenes in Polanski's 'The Pianist' match it for gritty, ambient realism. I cannot even put 'Saving Private Ryan' in the same class, since these dystopian, bombed-out landscapes are *vast* and hypnotising rather than episodic, and Stalingrad itself -as depicted by the producers- is a major character in the film.
On paper this film has the utterly compelling simplicity of a spaghetti western, with Jude Law's brave but talented farm-boy sniper and soviet hero pitched against Ed Harris's taciturn and masterly sniper, stringing out a long and complicated cat-and-mouse game among the astounding sights of Stalingrad in ruins. And, in fact, whatever criticism I have of the film, the premise and visual execution are simply so compelling as to outweigh them all.
That said, I wonder if the apparently French-speaking director was really able to elicit convincing performances from a first-rate cast...? I suspect a director with better English might have trashed and retaken a lot of the dialogue scenes that ended up in the final cut here. The delivery of the not-terrible dialogue is often hokey and stilted, and only the masterly Ed Harris seems to have a consistent handle on his character.

I first saw this film at the cinema and was blown away by the quality of the performances, the storyline and the amazing reality of the sets.
The film is set during the battle for Stalingrad in the winter of 1942, and as with all good war films has a very personal story line set in the midst of this massive confrontation. There are several fine performances from key British actors, especially from Jude Law in the main role of Soviet Sniper - Vassili Zeitsev.
I especially enjoyed the lack of American or British armed forces involvement, as films such as Pearl Harbour and Saving Private Ryan have taken much away from the massive contribution the Russians gave to the World War II effort.
I was keen to purchase the DVD as soon as it was made available, and I would recommend this as a worthy addition to any film collection.

A good film, that sums up Enemy at the Gates. War is hell, and that is what this film shows without the need for a over the top story that Private ryan used.
Jude Law is at his usual best, and like all the characters in this film, is believable. Based on a true story, two snipers (Jude Law with the Russians) and Ed Harris (German) play a game of propoganda cat and mouse, who is the best?
This film is also non-patriotic to either side which is a much needed relief from the biased U-571, Thin Red Line and Private Ryan.
Its not the most succesful War film but the best films rarely are.
watch it and enjoy.

A great film, one of my all time favorite war films I spent a long time waiting for an EU/UK wide release onto blu-ray but it never came. It's not the greatest transfer to HD ever but it does the film justice. Don't expect too many extra features, there's some extra scenes and mini-documentaries but that's about it. The case it comes in is slimmer than your regular blu-ray case, so bear that in mind if you like you collection of films to look 'just so' on the shelf.
