Attack on Leningrad is a pretty good movie, but one that I found to be a bit disappointing as well. By the looks of the trailer, it looked like this was going to be a sweeping war movie, it was, and wasn't. The film started well, quite exciting and thrilling, but it slowed down near the end, and it felt like the filmmakers didn't know how to conclude the story. I thought it was a decent ending, but one that could have been much better. The film is inaccurate, but for the most part, it shows us the chaos of what it was like for the Russians fighting. There was something missing from the film's script to really make it standout among other genre picture. The cast on the other were quite good, and elevated the average material enough to make this film watchable. This is not an awful film, it's just that it lacks in terms of authenticity and great storytelling. The film shows a bit of the suffering during the Second World, but it could use a more in depth structure to tell this compelling story. As a drama film it's average and as a war film, it's nothing remarkable. Despite the movies flaws, it's a worthy film to watch, but it really doesn't stand out among some of the best War films ever made. The film had so much potential in being a terrific experience, but it leaves you wanting more. The cast, like I said make it good, but at times there are things that really don't fit and fall flat. Attack on Leningrad should have been a memorable genre movie, but it's one of those movies that doesn't necessitate multiple viewings. Entertaining, but the script and execution could have been better overall.
