3.0 out of 5 stars Not one of Hammer's Best, 30 Dec 2004
This review is from: Rasputin - The Mad Monk [DVD] (DVD)
Made back to back with Dracula Prince of Darkness, using the same sets, and most of the same actors, it was made on the cheap, and looks it too. Historically, its a duff. Entertainment wise, its not bad. The story covers the emergence of Rasputin into Romanov society before the Russian Revolution. The script is rather weak, but the fine actors do carry it though. Christopher Lee made a great effort in his role as Rasputin. Francis Matthews; Dinsdale Landen and Richard Pasco play the conspirators who finally kill Rasputin believing his influence on the Tsarina could lead to the downfall of the Romanovs which of course does happen in 1917. In supporting roles are two lovely Hammer actresses Barbara Shelley and Suzan Farmer who were also in Dracula Prince of Darkness. Overall, its not a bad effort. It has enough material to while away an evening, but dont expect any shocks though. Picture and sound arent too bad on DVD. However, as far as extras are concerned, there are none whatsoever. Still, its cheap enough to buy, and maybe if you are a die hard Hammer fan, am sure you will add this to your collection.
