Annaud shows a real knack for suspense here, enough to make me hope he will do more action-adventure in the future.

If only ambition was the bar at which to measure the quality of motion pictures, Enemy at the Gates could sit atop the best of the year.

It generally succeeds at telling a truly heroic story, providing yet another vehicle to showcase the talents of Law and Harris, and of their supporting cast.

The central thriller element of the film more than compensates for these deficiencies as well as any of the dodgier script moments.

Time and again the movie feels like it's working toward a Hollywood moment but always retreats before succumbing to the opportunity.

Good but not great, marred by a sometimes implausible storyline and an accentuation of a love story that seems grafted onto the real movie.

A waste of talent on this scale would, in a just world, earn Annaud and Godard a well-placed bullet apiece.

With his uncanny gift of leading us from the unfamiliar to the intimate, Jude Law claims his place among Hollywood's leading character actors as he captures our imagination with the innocence, vulnerability, and perseverance of Vassili.

Probably worth seeing for the sets, battle scenes, and the questions of patriotism and allegiance it raises early on.
