    Excellent movie. Great cinematography. Great use of lighting and shadows. And all around great framing with excellent acting. Enjoyed part I and II. 8 years 1 month ago

    So much overacting. Ruined the whole movie for me. 2 years 10 months ago

    Incredibly disappointing. The film is a staid historical picture and lacks the creative montage techniques that made Eisenstein's previous films so exhilarating. 10 years 11 months ago
