Goofs

When Lady Esther shows baron Evert-Kokoltsev kids playing in laboratory, there is a Wimshurst machine on the table. However, this contraption was developed after 1880 while the movie is set in 1875. Distinctive oblong inserts show that this is machine of Wimshurst's design, not the period-appropriate generator designed by Holtz or Toepler. See more »

Could have been better
8 December 2008 | by TofigSee all my reviews

There is a usual disappointment when someone reads an ingenious work of a writer and watches the film of it after even though the screenplay is written by the writer. You feel it in this one too. Mise-en-scene and cinematography is proper, however acting of some of the actors might be much better especially the main interesting character Fandorin had to have the best acting but unfortunately he has not. The music was missing in some parts of the movie. There should have been less cuts. And the important moments should have been emphasized. Overall it is a very interesting detective to watch, but it could have been done better by Aleksandr Abadashyan.
