Legenda #17

Has anybody seen the movie? I've read a couple reviews. They praised it. But I got my doubts anyway.

You just can't show the truth in those movies. Nice Hollywood-like biographical movie about a sports legend. Had to push myself to finish watching it. Menshikov of course is one of a kind. He at times really managed to mimic the Tarasov scary good. Otherwise mediocre play by mediocre actors.

Where can one obtain a copy, and is it subtitled? Thanks for your help.

DVD release date is 30th May. So no particular information until then available.

I was in Russia last week and I found "Legenda 17" in the stores but it is not subtitled. Not even the "Special Edition" which included a Russian flag.

One Russian journalist called this movie "a piece of **** that has to be loathed with all intensity". Mostly because it has very little to do with reality of Kharlamov's life of the USSR at that time.

At least he is left-hand shot in the movie - unlike in that friggin' Miracle (2004)

The problem isn't even it's not being accurate, the problem are bad actors choices, stupid plot branches and unneeded all-around pompousness.
It also has quite a lot cursing and naked body for a 6+ movie - not a fan.

I's hilarious how Utkin ranks "Miracle" way above Legenda 17:

And he nails it admitting that he has not seen Legenda 17

I'd say it's mildly pompous. Just as much as a movie like this needs to be. It's redundant and gimmicky at times (the lazy bromance line concerned me the most), but the general audience seems to dig that. And it can't be bad in any way. It made more publicity for CSKA in particular than the club itself has done in its entire post-soviet history.

That "journalist" is exactly the thing he called the movie. Well, it has nothing to do with the fact that the movie isn't really worth any accolades.

Well, anybody with a grain of sanity of mind left ranks Utkin somewhere below a shizophrenic idiot and the wannabe Mussolini.

They basically had no choice. They have one prominent name on the cast and he does his job well. The rest are B-movie level actors.

Honestly, I liked "Stilyagi". And our war movies are generally good.

I liked it (gasp). Was it historically accurate to the point? Probably not... Yet, as the director admitted himself, they were not filming a documentary. Russian cinematography lacks good sports movies, so having Legenda #17 available is step in a right direction.

I did not mind the actors’ play either, it’s not like it was horrendous. I’d watch it again. And Imho, if you take away all the historical inaccuracies, the movie is not worse than “Miracle” from the entertaining perspective.

How is producing a pile of BS a step in the right direction?

It was horrendous. There is a simple reason for that. Only one actor there. The rest should dwell unnoticed on B-movies and TV-garbage nobody watches unless drunk or bored to death.
