I've made a brief quiz through my friends, colleagues and relatives (about 60 people in all), after the "Hetman Mazepa" was shown on the wide screens here, in Ukraine. The question was simple: "Did you like it?". Everybody said "no", except for one person, the professional critic, who admired it much, and compared with "Plan 9 from Outer Space".
And this is true. "Hetman Mazepa" compete with films by Edward D. Wood Jr. for the right to be called the worst movie ever made. Don't expect, that you'll make it through all the 2 h 32 min of the show. Usually, 98% of audience left after the first 40 minutes.
