It is impossible... not to marvel at his stylistic insistence that all people walk along a sky-line, and not to wish, in the same breath, that more directors had his talent for doing great things so well and little things so badly.

Sergei Eisenstein's mannerist epic about the Russian hero who warded off the invading Teutonic knights is a near-perfect combination of image and sound.

...qualifies as unabashed propaganda, but it also ranks as a first rate film about war that holds up because of Eisenstein's film artistry

The movie is strident, yes, but when it soars, it can't be touched.

a complete work of art that also functioned as a rallying cry for a burgeoning socialist nation under constant threat from fascism in the form of Nazi Germany

Edouard Tisse's superb photography and Prokofiev's stirring score contribute to a rhythm that is well-nigh irresistible.

Though made in 1938, Eisenstein historical epic, drawing parallels between the thirteenth centure and the late 1930s, is still one of the most rousing sepectacles ever made, rich in imagery and sound.

Sergei Eisenstein's classic tale of 13th-century Russia is as magnificent today as it must have been in 1938.
