Rating 5.0 Jaw-dropping spectacle! Movie Lover: from Elk Grove, CA US -- December, 16, 2007

The most expensive movie of all time, the Soviet government spared nothing in granting director Sergei Bondarchuk a virtual carte blanche to bring Leo Tolstoy's novel to life. Bondarchuk's sometimes excessive stylized visuals may make this version a bit daunting for those unfamiliar with Tolstoy's weighty and complicated novel, but the 100,000 or so Soviet soldiers acting as extras for the incredible battle scenes simply must be seen to be believed. Some shots include throngs of people literally as far as the horizon. I've seen this movie about a dozen times, and Bondarchuk's artsy form has an undeniable grace which gets more compelling with each viewing. The complete Russian language version with subtitles is far superior to the heavily edited and badly dubbed U.S. release version of the same movie.
