Contemporary Russia. Nadya gives up her dream of becoming a champion figure skater when she is hospitalized with an injury. But then she meets Sasha, a hockey player, who decides to teach her to believe in herself and her dream again.

A story of a legendary battle, where seventeen fearless warriors defend their land against an army of thousands well-trained soldiers. In 13th-century Mongol warrior hordes and their leader, Batu Khan, control most of the known world. As the Mongols move towards Europe they invade the last Russian principality standing in their way. Little do they know, their plans are about to be ruined by a small detachment of heroic strong men led by a mysterious brave warrior. This is a story about courage, endurance and self-sacrifice for the sake of one's country. This is the story of Evpaty the Furious.Written by
Well, i'm a Russian, and i'm from Moscow, Russia. I was born in USSR, 36 years ago.
If you want to watch/listen to Russian "Bylina", then it's your choice. We, the Russians, remember his (Kolovrat's) Choice, his Heroic Deed (podvig).
BUT. But this movie does't have anything to do with historical events (as we do know 'em). It's some sample of "hollywood" "action", brought to the Russian reality.
My post is not about his deed, his self-sacrifice, but about historical reality. He did, what he did. Many of us would do the same nowadays.
We just don't stand any lies, any interference in our lives. We don't like when anyone downplays our enemies. We don't like, when anyone displays our Heroes as comics characters (some stupid idiots like spiderman, whatsoever you may think).
The problem of this movie is that it has too much pathos and it's doesn't have anything with, well, "historical reality".
If you want to watch some (at least) good historical movies, then watch old "I na kamnyakh rastut derevya", or "Pathfinder"(1987!!! not that recent crap!).
