To be honest I expected more from a $40 million movie but it's still good. Comparing to the novel... Yeah... This kind of literature can be difficult for basing a movie on it. It contains a lot of philosophy which cannot be transferred to the movie. But this particular novel is also a good action which was not utilized in the movie. Why? Who knows... I guess Bondarchuck didn't want to make just an action blockbuster like it was with "It's hard to be a god". He tried to save philosophical idea. I am not sure if he succeeded. Any way this movie is an event in Russian movie industry which is discussed a lot and will be discussed few months more. The appearance of the film is very appropriate. Many people would see an analogy between Saraksh propaganda and whatever is happening in Russian politics and media. Let's wait for the 2nd part of the movie to be released.
