Movie Info

A major international project involving Russian and German actors, WHITE TIGER is based on a novel Tankman by Ilya Boyashov. World War II is drawing to a close....furious and prolonged fighting is exhausting both the Soviet and the fascist troops. The more decisive the advance of the Soviet army, the more often White Tiger, a huge, indestructible fascist tank, appears in the battlefield. It relentlessly emerges from the smoke of combat, ruthlessly destroys the adversary and swiftly vanishes. No one can verify or refute its existence, however, the Soviet military command decides to build an extraordinary tank - a special version of the T-34 that can match the power of White Tiger.

Audience Reviews for White Tiger

Very cool to see authentic WW2 armour in action. But lord, does this thing crawl like a lumbering, entirely predictable machine. The ending degrades into some kind of obtuse Hitler commentary on the inevitability of war. Moby Dick in the Gotterdamerung sounds interesting, but other than the final combat scene, there just isn't much going on. Acting is, for the most part, wooden and uninvolved. I would much rather recommend Lebanon, the Israeli tank movie from 2012--better than Fury and much better than this snoozer.

Moby Dick re-imagined through a lens of mysticism set on the Russian front. Absorbing, even gripping, with strong performances and superb tank battles until the movie slips a tread and wanders in odd circles toward the end.
