Goofs

The movie has a scene with the Estonian consulate in Leningrad, dated November 29, 1924. There is an angry crowd, and among the many insults it shouts, several times fascists are mentioned. This is unlikely for 1924, as the word came in use as a pejorative in Russia only in World War II, after the German attack in 1941. See more »

Bad, cliché-ridden movie
12 April 2014 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

This is a lame excuse for a "political"/historical drama movie, it's even bad for a propaganda one; every movie-cliché is present here in it's worst form, for example, in one of the final scenes you get a BIG, BAD, COMMUNIST villain who tries to kiss a damsel-in-distress (who happens to be the "good guy" girlfriend) while (I kid you not) there's some old ladies tied to a chair in the room next door, silently screaming because their mouths are gagged (it looks like a "popeye" scene, really). Luckily our hero, a charming young man, comes up in the last minute and saves the girl, kill the baddies and saves the republic for falling into the soviet hands!

Another thing you can learn from this movie: All communists are bad, like, REALLY bad. They spend all time murdering people in cold blood and shouting incomprehensible slogans. And their bosses in Moscow are no better, really. Now that I recall, before I said this movie had every bad-movie cliché in the world, well, I was wrong: the filmmakers didn't made Zinoviev use an evil laughter or pet a cat while he was commanding the failed coup; now THAT would have been the icing on the cake. Kudos for that, you win an extra point: 3/10
