This is a Russian take on part of the life of Alexander Yaroslavich Prince of all Novgorod set in the 1240's and played by Anton Pampushny. He faces evil enemies on all sides he has Eric King of Sweden with his Crusader Knights wanting to force the Church of Rome onto the Orthodox Novgoroddians, the Germans who want a land grab and some religious conversion would be nice, and the Tartars who apart from selling their sauce also want tribute in return for not being enslaved.

Problem is he also has some scheming Boyars in his own midst who for their own selfish gain are willing to sell out their Prince. His best friend Ratmir (Igor Botvin) is making eyes at the new princess and he increasingly feels isolated. But according to the blurb `his power was that of Samson and his wisdom that of Solomon'. Well we are going to have to take their word for that as he doesn't get to push over a temple of threaten a baby with dissection, but he is rather handy in a scuffle and he knows how to play a player and so the fun begins.

This is a really good story and is not half bad, but the problem seems to be down to cash or rather the lack of it, some of the scenes could have done with some judicious editing and the extras could have been more plentiful especially in the battle scenes where some clever camera angles are often used to make up for lack of background animation, but not here.

The acting is all above average though no-one was writing an award acceptance speech during post production and there was a fair amount of character development and some on screen chemistry but it is all not developed enough, we just sort of are asked to accept the situation is as portrayed on screen.

Very much in the same school as "1612" this is patriotic Russian cinema at its fullest. Well shot in the yellow light of a Russian summer with lots of trees and lots of wooden buildings; there has been plenty spent on kit and on extras. The goodies and baddies are clearly identified (it's the Swedes this time) and there's lots of court intrigue, a Sir Lancelot figure, and a big fight at the end. The plot is pretty simple but with lots of side sub-plots to keep you busy. Somewhere between A Game Of Thrones and Braveheart.

Russians can make such good films, so it is simply annoying that they also make some as bad as this. The early years of Alexander Nevsky may have been a turmoil of internal politics, and threats from Swedes, Germans, and Mongols alike: but do they have to be so dull? Most of the film plays like an episode of 'Cadfael', with about as much historical accuracy and tension. The action scenes resemble the old 'Robin Hood' TV series, with constant jump cuts, slo-mo effects, and anything thrown in, all to detract from the lack of extras, and the restricted budget.
The usual Russian acting style of hamming it up, wide-eyed and shouting, is done to death here, with a ridiculous soundtrack not helping matters, as it 'tells' you when to be excited, or to expect dramatic events.
The lead actor as Alexander, and the one playing his best friend, resemble the Gibb brothers from the Bee Gees, all bouffant hair, and neat designer beards, giving the whole thing a 1980's feel, rather than 13th Century gravitas. Even as a comedy , it just doesn't work. Despite the current small asking price, I am afraid that it is still £2.43 too much.

Russian historical action movie focussing on the struggle of a young Prince Alexander desperately defending his homeland. Following the death of his father, Alexander (Anton Pampushny) finds himself facing serious challenges to his rule. His kingdom (Novgorod) is coveted by the Swedes and the Germans so with little choice but to fight or surrender Alexander embarks on a military campaign to consolidate his power. Worth sticking with if you enjoy medieval genre battle field movies. But beware this movie has subtitles and has an abrupt ending.

This is a workmanlike retelling of the early life of Alexander Nevsky as we now know him and how he came to get his surname. There's plenty of sword-play and behind the scenes skullduggery featuring Germans and Swedes and dodgy boyers at home in Novgorod. I thought that the battle scenes were quite well done although the final battle is a little drawn out but perhaps it's meant to be.

Not too many special effects as far as I could see. I've noticed that quite a few of these Russian movies rely on compuetr graphics to generate scenes of Moscow/Kiev/Warsaw wherever with thousands of warriors gazing upon it in quite an obvious way.

Alexander is very much the good guy, dispensing justice in an equal handed way and giving the Mongol envoy fairly short shrift as he does in Eisenstein's film. He does seem a little one dimensional at times but after all he does end up a saint.

The little blurb at the end seems to hint that there may be a second film in the offing, this time fighting the Germans, so possibly a remake of Alexander Nevsky. If that turns out to be true, I'll certainly get a copy of it based on this one.
