"Long live the Provisional Government." You just gotta say, "Hmm, isn't that kinda of an oxymoron?"
This has some magnificent sequences, but it's not the revelation to me that Strike or Ivan P1 were. Leaning a little too hard on the associative editing with constant insert shots of iconic statues that represent something (or other) that may be relevant to the onscreen action?
Also, it's a little wearying to be shouted at for two hours.
I'd say this is the least of Eisenstein's major films.
