REVIEW: MOVIE - 9TH COMPANY
9th Company is a Russian/Finnish made movie recently released in those countries. It is based on a true story about the 9th company from the 351st Guards Regiment of the Russian Army as they tried holding a hilltop area in Afganistan against Taliban fighters. Further research into this movie shows it botched up a few of the facts but otherwise I feel it is very well done. It shows a bit of the training and huge amount of modern combat in a really rough area of the world by 2 equally rough opponents.
I enjoyed seeing all the russian armour throughout and the array of russian firearms in use. I also was intrigued by the constant use of the word "mate" although I think this was more likely a result of the subtitling.
Anyway, here is the link to the youtube member with the entire movie split into 13 parts.
