(2001) Jean-Jacques Annaud’s second world war thriller is set in Stalingrad, which the Nazis are threatening to overrun. Nikita Khrushchev (Bob Hoskins) arrives to stiffen the defending troops’ resolve and decides they need a hero to rally the forces. He finds one in Vassily Zaitsev (Jude Law), a deadly sniper whose expertise soon has the Germans in turmoil. To take him down, the Germans send in Major Konig (Ed Harris), Zaitsev’s equal as a sniper, and the war-torn ruins of Stalingrad become a deadly hunting ground for the pair.
