Saw The Unknown Soldier (Tuntematon Sotilas, 2017) on Saturday.

Holy fucking shit.

The old black and white one from 1955 had some kind of positive vibe and message in it, but this one doesn't play around. There is no positive message, there is no hope. It shows how fucking horrible war is in a way I haven't seen before. It's tough to say what exactly they did what I experienced as especially powerful. It might be the fact that I was kind of expecting the morale boosting banter and 'don't worry guys, we'll be fine!' mentality from the book and the old movie but all I got was gritty scenes of wounded soldiers screaming and crying in pain in bloodcurdling voices, a thick atmosphere of constant fear and anxiety and the pain of losing friends and fellow soldiers you count upon. And it was three hours long. An even longer series is coming out later.

The battle scenes were shot beautifully, mostly from the viewpoint of the soldiers themselves and they even got some real T-34's driving around and wrecking shit. A couple of really nice Allahu Akbar scenes as well!

I'm giving the film 9/10 points, but I might be biassed though because Finland, the continuation war and all that. However, I honestly think most of you guys would really like this film.


Edit: Actually, I think I'm gonna go watch it again...

Just saw the trailer and, besides I understood shit, it looks great!

Any link to download it on the original language? And subtitles in english at least

If you click on the closed captions [CC] button, you'll get English subtitles for the trailer.

The movie is currently shown only in Finland. Sweden will get it on our independence day (6.12) and after that... I don't know. A DVD/BR rip should appear later on.

Jesus Christ... I don't even like the Punisher as a comic book character - I always found him a bit mindless. But this was one of the best Marvel series to date. Second only to Defenders and Daredevil 2 because I'm hot for Elektra. Entirely convincing, took up some interesting issues and was just brilliant all round.
