Critic Reviews for Red Army
Fascinating, funny, heroic, moving and may even make hockey fans out of nonbelievers.
It's a mark of Polsky's ambition and canniness that he braids hockey not just with geopolitics but also with personal history and human drama.
Polsky keeps things lively, both visually and with his editing. But the sometimes-lighthearted approach never undermines the serious business at hand.
On the surface it's the story of one particular hockey player, but it reflects so much more.
It's a story of global consequences and historic proportions, and of astounding athleticism and synchronicity - and filmmaker Polsky ices it.
Audience Reviews for Red Army
A surprisingly emotional trip through Soviet hockey history from the late 70s to the fall of the Berlin Wall with the traditionally unemotional stars of the Soviet team. Their stories are fascinating and the documentarians have a great eye and sense of topics to be raised.
One for anyone interested in ice hockey and/or the cold war.
For those interested in Soviet era hockey, this is a well deserving documentary telling the story from the perspective of the Soviet players. Although it lacks in any serious challenge or criticism, it is still quite informative and enjoyable.
