It's like a kung fu movie but for Eastern European Politics
3 November 2004 | by (Iowa City) – See all my reviews

So you might find yourself watching this movie somehow, somewhere. For me, it was a class about a much more talented Bosnian director (Emir Kusturica) and the film was shown to give us a better understanding of the recent history of the region. Anyway, this movie is OK when it's OK, and really, really bad when it's really, really bad. Just watch the hilarious torture scene with Maxmillian Schell. Honestly, it's hysterically funny how hammy the acting is.

And the dubbing is really bad, even though it looks like it was shot in English to begin with.

The only scenes of merit are the limited battle sequences. The rest is stupid and obvious, with over-wrought faces and an annoying supporting conspirator in the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand who bounces from playboy to patriot at the drop of a hat. It takes him three minutes to make the obvious pun that he has a date with destiny. Whatever, watch this film some time if you want a good laugh.
