Goofs

When Admiral Kolchak is addressing his troops in November 1918 at the Eastern Front, a variety of flags can be seen in the background, including an American flag that clearly has nine rows of stars. All American flags of this period had just six rows of stars; the US flag didn't contain more than six rows of stars until 1959, when on January 3 a seventh row was added to recognize Alaska's entry into the union, and on August 21 the stars were rearranged in nine rows in recognition of Hawaii's entry.

Finally a chance to see through the glass darkly
12 June 2011 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Soviet cinema provided us with a myriad films on the Russian revolution and Civil War. While many were artistically engaging, all of them had one mission - to portray the Soviet cause as just and right.

Admiral finally gives audiences an opportunity to see the other side of the story in a human way, without the heavy handed political approach of its Soviet counterparts. It gives you a taste of a Russia that was destroyed after the Bolsheviks sealed their grip on the country. A respectable budget and modern technology allows this film to portray a realism that even Soviet cinema at its prime couldn't match. Everything, from battle scenes to tea parties is very much alive. At the same time, cheap Hollywood-isms are avoided, so if you're looking for a steamy sex scene you'll be disappointed.

The 124 minute version of this film suffers from being a bit rushed, with the romantic story taking center stage which obscures other deep elements of the story. The expanded version is considerably more filling, especially those who enjoy the historical content and a more laid back pace that allows you to absorb.
