No mention of Massie's famous work? Wow. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Absentee (talkcontribs) 05:55, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Plot summary[edit]

The plot summary, at over 1200 words, was overlong and had been tagged as such since November. I've replaced it with a much briefer, nore encyclopedic version from this older revision. --Tony Sidaway 05:32, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

And it has been growing like a cancer ever since. The current length of 11,600 characters is absolutely ludicrous. I suggest reverting the Plot section to the version of 02:39, 7 April 2013‎ and locking the article. (talk) 19:12, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

"Facts section"[edit]

Removed a discussion item over the "seriousness" with which the Bolshevik party was discussed. Bolsheviks were always a minority and furthermore this cited events happening outside the scope of the film. The duration of the film would entail a time when the communists were less likely to overtake Russia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:27, 26 December 2009 (UTC)


Could you add something about the locations? For example: IMDB lists S'Agaró. Did it stand for Crimea? And what building was the Tsar saluting the marching troops at the beginning of the war? Was it the Palacio de Oriente? --Error (talk) 00:34, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Different edits[edit]

I saw this film in the theater when it was first released. I was surprised seeing it on VHS and on TV a few years later, because quite a few key scenes had been removed. Scenes of the poverty, cruelty of the Tsar's Cossack soldiers were gone. The impression was that they had removed any motivation for the revolution, making it just appear to be a random power grab. Not that I'm supporting the Bolsheviks, but the film appeared to be politically edited. DonPMitchell (talk) 02:31, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Fact vs fiction section[edit]

Back in 2008, Radiohawk added a fact vs fiction section.[1] I removed that section today because of serious concerns about violating WP:No original research. All such information should be sourced. Binksternet (talk) 19:11, 27 April 2016 (UTC) you HAVE to have some description separating fact from fiction, it's REQUIRED, if it's a hardcore historical film. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:02, 10 May 2016 (UTC)
