Battle for Moscow is a war movie that shows the odds a small Soviet unit of soldiers faced in a battle during World War II. It shows us how they prepared for the battle and how they did it once they entered the battle.

While most of the movie is everything we have seen before, there is some heart involved with the passion project of the directors. However, it doesn’t end up being fresh enough and by the end of the movie, we know how most of it will unfold.
