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.

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.

In one of the "special features" accompanying this DVD, the director Jean-Jacques Annaud talks of the fascination of the "rhythm" of a slow, intimate story (the sniper v. sniper slow dance) set against the world-historical, densely-populated, "action-oriented" story of the Battle of Stalingrad in 1942-43, the battle in which the Red Army, taking horrific losses, managed to stop the eastward movement of Hitler's Nazi war machine. The movie actually starts with an old-fashioned visual device -- the map of Europe with the black stain of Nazism spreading out from Germany in all directions, until it comes, in the east, to the Volga . . . I liked that. It reminded me of old war movies I had enjoyed. And the "rhythm" idea is kind of neat too, although it's pretty much an aesthetic indulgence on Annaud's part -- for it isn't totally credible, for all of rhetoric of the Russian propagandist commissar Danilov (Joseph Fiennes) and Nikita Khrushchev (Bob Hoskins), that victory at Stalingrad depends on the outcome of the sniper war between the Russian Vassily Zaitsev and the German master-sniper Konig (Ed Harris). One has to give some credit to the set-designers -- the ruined Stalingrad is well presented and at times spectacularly filmed, whether in its details or in the wider picture. But that's it -- for the film is hollow at the core: these cast members have done very good work in other movies, and they go at it like true professionals here, but they're given nothing to work on in terms of character. Such back-stories as we get are very sketchy, and it's as if they have no lives beyond the exigencies of the plot.Read more ›

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.
