Audience Reviews for 1612: Chroniki smutnogo vremeni

Maybe the best translation of the title should be "1612. Chronicles of the Troubled Time" and that it was... that year was in Russian history nothing but trouble! But, this is not a historical epic, even if it's trying to be, because many facts are simply twisted... We got as a result very entertaining action-adventure fantasy from Russia. I think that Vladimir Hotinenko (or Khotinenko if you want) is following the old fashioned way of story telling where a serf rises to a superhero and at the end "the justice wins"... even the movie itself is made in the old-fashioned style of the Russian movies with some amazing action scenes and superbly staged battles. If you're familiar with the Russian film you'll know that the main character is played by one of the most popular actors - Pyotr Kislov. The story of a young man who is trying to fight a Polish warlord who wants to marry the kidnapped daughter of Boris Godunov and making himself master of Russia is going to keep you glued to the screen most of the time during the 2 h 27 min you'll spend watching it. You could enjoy especially the "bad guy", Poland's #1 leading man, Michal Zebrowski, who has headlined some impressive action films in his career. If you believe in unicorns, like the old fashioned historical epics and you're not too "picky" regarding the actual historical facts - there is a movie for you! Enjoyment guaranteed!

I enjoyed this movie quite a bit. Costumes and settings were amazing. The action was relentless and well done. However I could have done with less mysticism/unicorns and more fighting. I especially was disappointed in the build up to the battle of Moscow and then them cutting away right as it happened. That ticked me off, but other than that it was pretty enjoyable. Doesn't make a whole hell of a lot of sense, but it was pretty good. Check it out if you like the genre and are looking for something different.

good fighting but was not a big fan of the main charector or the style of some of the movie. very slow. dead pan main actor. Kotska and Alvar (the spaniard) were the best.
