Storyline

Biographical film about the inventor and designer of small arms Mikhail Timofeevich Kalashnikov. Today it is difficult to find a person who does not know this name. However, not everyone knows what a long and thorny path traveled a self-taught guy to create the legendary AK-47 weapon at the age of 28, which to this day is a symbol of the weapons thought of our time.

Entertaining and worth a watch
17 February 2021 | by bjackson-739-450552See all my reviews

I just saw the English dubbed version of this film and the voice actors did a pretty good job. Don't know how accurate this was compared to the real history, but it sure was entertaining and kept my interest right to the very end. Propaganda, so what? You'd be hard pressed to find any fictional movie, docudrama, documentary, or fact based movie of similar genre that doesn't have propaganda. Hell, the Americans are experts on it and I wish us Canadians were better at it.
