In 2004 unit of Polish forces was sent to Karbala to guard the city hall and adjoining prison for 24 hours, which did not sounded like complicated task, especially since Bulgarian soldiers and 300 Iraqi policemen will be supporting them. But on arrival Captain Kalicki realizes that the situation in city hall is completely different and they will be facing some heavy opposition.
First expedition of white people try to reach the region of Natal conquered by the tribe of Zulu under their fearless leader Shaka. Lieutenant Farewell wants to establish an ivory trading post, which is quite risky since Shaka is known for being ruthless and even tyrannical ruler. While the British reach his kraal the legends about the Zulu king prove to be right.
In December 1944 Hitler put the fate of his nation in last bold operation - all the offensive units Wehrmacht had available were put together to push towards Antwerp in Belgium in order to break the flood of Allied forces to the continent. Since the German fuel supplies were really stretched the spearhead of the offensive through Ardennes could not waste time or effort on dealing with prisoners, which lead to SS-handled massacres in Malmedy and other Belgian villages.
In 1994 the civil war in Rwanda has changed - the Hutu militia took the matters in their own hands and solved the tension between them and Tutsi in worst possible way - by genocide. Civilians were trapped in country turning into chaos, while the world just watched it on TV, not wanting to get involved, even to save the civilians from being killed on the streets.
When war suddenly brake out the civilians are always the first casualties - not on the battlefields, but in their own homes. Peopleâ€™s lives are shattered by the conflicts, men have to join the army, farmers have to provide food for the soldiers, the women have to deal with the life without their husbands or sons. Tom Dobb was one of such victims - when American revolution against the British Empire have started he wanted to stay away from politics, but as it is common, when you try to avoid politics, the politics will invade your life anyway.
World War 1 was one of the bloodiest and most senseless conflicts in human kind history - the war started for no better reason than having a good war again, the weapons used were more deadly and cruel than ever, the 4 years and millions of dead soldiers changed absolutely nothing. So what is a better way to tell that story than through a musical?
World War 2 had many faces and inspired many movies - some of them showed the most spectacular events of the war, but The Caine Mutiny is not one of them - here we have the other type of war movies, the drama (almost chamber drama) that takes place on one of many warships on the Pacific away from the glorious battles, but not away from the drama of the war itself.
This movie was called many things - Omar Sharif called it the worst film in his career, it was sometimes referred as the worst financial flop, sometimes as the flop with biggest budget in history, sometimes it was listed among the worst movies ever. Yes, The 13th Warrior was a financial flop, but comparing to other flops this one was one hell of enjoyable experience.
After the success of Saving Private Ryan it seemed that it was the ultimate production that set the standards that canâ€™t be made beaten. And that was true, many directors later tried to make their war movies similar to Saving Private Ryan, f.e. Assembly, Enemy at the Gates or Fury, but none of them reached the same level of realism, the atmosphere and storytelling. At least until Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg did not come up with one better - Band of Brothers TV mini-series.
In 1917 Germany was struggling to cope with the war - 3 years of conflict did not achieved anything, the forces were stretched on two fronts, food shortages were causing unrest in the German cities and the generals were desperate to find a solution. Moving the units from eastern front to France would give them advantage, but so far the abdication of tsar and Russian Provisional Government did not make any progress in pulling Russia from war. Doctor Parvus came up with unusual solution...
