USSR, Late November, 1941. Based on the account by reporter Vasiliy Koroteev that appeared in the Red Army's newspaper, Krasnaya Zvezda, shortly after the battle, this is the story of Panifilov's Twenty-Eight, a group of twenty-eight soldiers of the Red Army's 316th Rifle Division, under the command of General Ivan Panfilov, that stopped the advance on Moscow of a column of fifty-four Nazi tanks of the 11th Panzer Division for several days. Though armed only with standard issue Mosin-Nagant infantry rifles and DP and PM-M1910 machine guns, all useless against tanks, and with wholly inadequate RPG-40 anti-tank grenades and PTRD-41 anti-tank rifles, they fight tirelessly and defiantly, with uncommon bravery and unwavering dedication, to protect Moscow and their Motherland.

    So "28 Panfilov's" came out. Only 1.700.000$ in budget. For a start, i'm very sorry for bad English, but i trying, because never teaching in school (in my school in city - only German language), only in internet (films, games, forums, without teacher, i hope you will forgive me). I have not seen such a realistic film about the Great Patriotic War, filmed in modern Russia. But what is really there, the normal film about this war we have, in fact, and not removed. "Brest Fortress" stands out, of course, but it is not quite realistic - after all the drama and all the love stories are present there. In the "28-Panfilov," all this is not a realistic film to the limit, and this will please any fan of military history, like me. I very much awaited release of the film, and believed in him. It wanted to get it to something stirred up the people, the hope of a good movie appeared, the fact that such films can be done for little money, giving a soul into his work and solid professionalism.
    Today, finally, went to the movies and after watching I can safely say
