Trivia

Mosfilm gave the production crew exactly 5400 m of color Kodak stock for the whole movie, therefore parts of the movie and some demanding sequences, like the train robbery, had to be filmed on cheaper black and white stock. See more »

19 July 2001 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie. It reminds me a little bit of "Beloye Solntse Pustini" or in English "The White Sun of the Desert", same type of the 1920's action movie. I think this movie has some of the best cinematography that I have ever seen in any film. This is a very easy going-enjoyable-smart action film. Mikhalkov did a great job.
