where are the missing parts???,
This review is from: The Admiral [DVD]  (DVD)Having viewed the excellent original mini series in its native state from Russian TV i was looking forward to the English subtitle version. It arrived in good condition and in very good time. As i work overseas i was looking forward to spending some evenings watching the saga unfold but what i watched was a poor summary of the original series, with importamt parts of the story and plot being cut out obviously to fit it to a single disc. Anyone watching this will get a totally wrong idea of the quality of the original series which like i say was excellent. My wife is a native Russian speaker so i guess if i want to watch it again i will again have to rely on her translating the more complete series from the original version put out on Russian TV. A Great series cruely butchered in this product. I will attempt to find the original uncut version because it is a great story.
Dont buy unless you are happy with a summary not the full series...... Very dissapointed

I really enjoyed the film - an impressive example of the way Russia is rediscovering and reassessing it's pre-Revolution past through films like this and another favourite, "Gentlemen Officers Save The Tsar" (I'm sure that one sounds better in the original Russian) - but I had no idea that it was based on a much longer TV mini-series. If you do manage to track down the series then please post details here because I'd love to see it too.
