The Beast is by far one of greatest war movies of all time. It's too bad that it didn't make it into the theatres. This is definitely a movie that you should look for. Don't rent it, buy it. George Dzundza plays Daskal PERFECTLY. The camera work is extremely well done. All the actors in the movie do a great job, except for Stephen Baldwin, who does only decently. Possibly the stealer of the show is the T-62 tank that is used. Not only is it shown from the inside out, you get to see it shoot, move, everything. What other movie has that? This is a once-in-a-lifetime movie, so take advantage of it while you can. No doubt should it be in everyone's DVD/VHS collection.

One of the best war movies to date.Reviewed byjsalvador555Vote: 10/10
I have watched this film several times over the years but as world events have evolved, it seems to have had fewer and fewer airings.
Maybe that's because there is no further way to 'polish a turd'.
My apologies to all of those involved but this is a reprehensible piece of US film-making.
When this film was produced, the Berlin Wall had just come down but the Soviet Union still existed and still posed a severe threat to the US.
However, no-one should delude themselves - this is simply a white hat/black hat/good guy/bad guy re-hash of what Hollywood has been doing for decades.
Only in this film, the Soviets are the bad guys and the 'Mujihadeen' are the good guys.
Then, having ousted the Soviet regime, the Mujihadeen (see the word 'jihad' in there) seized control of Afghanistan and transformed into... the 'Taliban'.
Beautiful desert scenery, photography that really stands out, emotional soundtrack (though dated at times), powerful acting, great storyline and convincing character development
Nothing worth mentioning!
I can only speculate why this movie isn't recognised up there with Apocalypse Now and Platoon. Maybe the American audience wasn't interested in the topic in 1988, maybe it's because of poor marketing by Columbia (Seashellz talks about a period of transition there). Whatever the reason, it's a damn shame, because this marvel deserves more.
