Review of First Squad: The Moment of Truth

A mixture of anime and talking heads (live); Russian written, Japanese animated. Reminded me a bit of Nightwatch/Daywatch. Involves Nazi and German para-normal intelligence divisions battling each other manipulate a turning point in history (the moment of history) The real problem with First Squad was that everytime the story gained any momentum it cut to a talking head, that talked about the history of that time period. It was interesting, especially the blending of fact and fiction, but it felt like we were stuttering through the movie. Still worth watching for a Russian perspective of the early war years. Studio 4C's animation is up to snuff, but nothing special.
