      Sarah Boslaugh TheArtsStl Unknown Soldier does not sugar-coat the grind of this kind of warfare, nor the inevitable loss of life that comes with any war, but it also offers moments of respite, levity, and even joy. Rated: 7/10 Mar 23, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Darren B This is a well-made film. It effectively portrays the brutality of war as well as its absolute futility in this case. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/13/24 Full Review Aron Johansson A brilliant and heartbreaking war movie for anyone interested in the finnish perspective in ww2. Stunning graphics and true to history, avoiding any Hollywood glamour. One of the best war movies to my knowledge. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Rolando R This is a really Great war film. It is a bit long but a complete War film that encompasses all. Strongly suggest see if you appreciate history and the sacrifices of All soldiers. I am a Veteran and the battles are very accurate too. I rented on Vudu. Enjoy Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/14/23 Full Review martin f An absolutely great war movie, worth a watch in finnish. The story telling was really good and as far as i can say historicaly authentic which in my humble opinion is very important, at the least to me. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review yukiko h I cried a little after watch this movie . Finland people , women or men had fought to USSR by their entire lives among Nazis Deutschland and USSR . After all , Finland had to close to Nazis Deutschland for against USSR . It was and it's too hard to defense to Russia by long border line . Why Russian always such a horrible mind is ? It seems ridiculously . Finland or Ukraine has the rights of their " Independence " as country . Many Suomi soldiers were dying or injured next to next was actual history . Now a day , Finland or Sweden doesn't join NATO as their decisions as Russia's next country . I'm emotional a little by their fighting with empathy . Finland and Sweden or Norway keep to be good economy countries to their national defense , I think . Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
