Storyline

When the Soviet troops freed Ivan from the Nazi prison, he was charged with high treason and was facing long years in Siberian camps. Ivan did not want to die behind barbed wire or wait for an amnesty. Once he got an opportunity, he escaped from his camp. He was hunted high and low like the most wanted criminal and there was no place for him in the USSR. Based on the historical realities of those times, the film unfolds before the viewer a credible sequence of events that turned the Hero of the Soviet Union into a GULAG prisoner and then an Indian Chief. That is why the name Ivan Datsenko had to be changed for another - Firecrosser. Written by Andriy Suyarko

The greatest Ukrainian film of nowadays
5 May 2012 | by ivasykusSee all my reviews

Firecrosser - the most awaited film by Ukrainian filmmakers for a long time. I would to say it were really highest-quality film, but it is not. Me and most of spectators of my Motherland are spoiled by Hollywood blockbusters with perfect screenplay and expensive special effects. So everyone waited for something outstanding, especially after widespread advertising campaign of "Firecrosser"...

The film is not outstanding. It's even not impressive. But be sure: it is also not bad. Film is as good, as it possible for Ukrainian product.

If I rate it objectively, I would put it 7 points. But I remember that it is the first real Ukrainian film. The first try. The picture which gives all of us a hope that our cinematography is not dead and it will arise. So I just can't mark Firecrosser, which became the most important happening in Ukrainian culture of all time of Independence, by point less then 10.

It is excellent. And it is just a beginning.
