Brief Synopsis – The crew of a Russian Battleship unhappy with the way that their officers act, decide to mutiny.
Bottom Line – Interesting film that works quite well. The story plays out really fluidly and the fact that this was made in 1925 is amazing due to the lack of technical expertise at that time. The visuals are great and allow us to see the kind of issues that these men were faced with which caused their actions. The story works well here in helping to establish the cruel ways that these men were treated by their superiors and their actions are somewhat warranted due to this. The fact that this film is based on actual events enhances things so much. Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The flag seen flying on the ship after the crew had mutinied was white, which is the color of the tsars, but this was done so that it could be hand-painted red on the celluloid, which is the color of communism. Since this is a black-and-white film, if the flag had been red it would have shown up black in the film. The flag was hand-tinted red for 108 frames by director Sergei M. Eisenstein for the film’s premier.(From IMDB)
Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
