Illogical free interpretation of history in its worst.
This movie has nothing to do with history and actually art of movie. The story told in the movie has nothing to do to Russia. The actual story is about Kyivan Rus' that existed long before Russia appeared. Briefly: Volodymyr looks like stupid monkey with AK-47. Story is illogical, torn and lifeless. Lots of stupid, unhistorical events like boats sliding from the hill. Another crap movie wasted over 200mln dollars of taxes. Despite the budget decorations are poor, 2nd plan actors lazy and pretending. God, this movie so bad that even Uve Boll would film it better.
