Great epic film of all times
11 November 2013 | by geogqqSee all my reviews

I was looking for this movie, which I saw as a little boy during the Cultural Revolution in China.

I cannot write a better review than what has been written here. I sincerely, wholeheartedly echo the reviewer's assessment. This is truly an epic film of all times, notwithstanding the intention ofr political propaganda behind the making of this film. Heck, all have tried to make such nationalistic films. The Soviets have done a better job than most others.

We were shown this film as part of Chinese government propaganda of revealing Soviet imperial designs. I was impressed, nevertheless, by the epic battle scenes and how Admiral Ushakov faded away (reminding an American perhaps General MacArthur).

How can we get to see more non-American/non-English epics?
