    THE BEAST - THE T55 TANK - THE SHOW CASE WEAPON OF SOVIET RUSSIA

    THIS FILM TRYS TO DEPICT A MINI SAGA OF WHAT THE AFGHAN OCCAPTION BY SOVIET RUSSIA WAS LIKE. A WAR OF EXTERMINATION WHICH THE WORLD IN MY OPINION IS STILL FEELING THE EFFECT OF! THE FILM IS GOOD VIEWING BUT THE SCRIPT COULD BE MORE INTERESTING TO SHOW BETTER THE CAPABILITIES OF THE ACTORS WHO ARE MUCH BETTER THAN THEY WERE SHOWN TO BE IN THIS FILM.INEXPENSIVE DVD WHICH GIVES YOU VALUE FOR MONEY.

    Excellent tank movie for those of us who have been there

    Hollywood usually messes up tactics and the true nature of soldiers in films like this. Well, which ever Israeli (where the film was made and where the Syrian tanks were liberated to make this film) soldiers trained these actors should be commended for showing them what being a tanker is really like. I like accuracy in war films, and this film is excellent for that. Also, this film does depict how horrible war is. The cruelty displayed by both sides can now be seen by Americans fighting in both Afghanistan and Iraq (been to the latter twice). If you want to see a war film that is truly horrifying and can really show you what it is like, then pick up The Beast.

    Fantastic War Flick!

    War brings out the worst AND best in men. This story has cruelty and destruction, but also nobility and sacrifice on both sides - Russian and Afghani. The plot twists and turns and ironies pile up, all amid exciting and strange action in the pitiless desert. Great characters, dynamic action, non-stop suspense. A winner!
