Goofs

During the opening sequence at the Baltic Sea (November 1916, according to the captions), Admiral Kolchak identifies the pursuing German armored cruiser as the SMS Friedrich Carl and enters his own minefield in order to escape. Later, when the Germans are about to blast the immobile and damaged Russian vessel, they strike a mine and their ship blows apart and sinks within seconds with a clear big loss of lives. Actually, although the SMS Friedrich Carl was in fact sunk by Russian mines, this happened two years before than the movie shows (November 1914). Besides, she stayed afloat for several hours, enough for the light cruiser SMS Augsburg to arrive to the scene and rescue most of the crew, and only 8 crew members were lost. (In reference to a deliberate mistake, it is very unlikely that an experienced seaman and high rank officer such as Kolchak had mistaken a ship for one that the entire Russian navy knew had sunk two years before.)

Interesting and somewhat entertaining, but too solemn biopic
23 February 2013 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

An interesting, if flawed, biopic about Alexander Kolchak, Russian admiral during World War I, and after the Russian revolution, leader of the Russian whites during the civil war. I know the Soviet Union ended more than 20 years ago, but I was still surprised to see such a reverent movie about one of the leaders of the Russian whites. For example, the scene where Kolchak takes command of his army with the blessing of the Russian Orthodox Church is told with soaring musing, and without any hint of irony. Story of his romance with the wife of one of his fellow officers adds very little (in fact, probably detracts) from the film. In summary, a generally well made film and with a relatively generous budget, but a bit too reverent and solemn toward its subject.
