awfully executed movie, 21 April 2009
Author: cossack-5 from United States

I was really looking forward to watch this movie but when I actually got to see it, I couldn't stand more than 15 min of this amateur level time waster- silly and unbelievable speeches, video, sound effects... it was just horrible. I fast forwarded to the battle scenes and it was just as bad- a bunch of people in pretty dresses running around, gunshot sounds taken straight out of old western movies, Polish hussars charges looked like a slow walk in a park.. the whole thing looked like a parody.

If this movie was a college cinematography project, I would give it 7/10, but it wasn't, so I give 2/10 for nice dresses.
