I'll skip most of the superlatives and get to the point; this is perhaps one of the greatest (certainly most ambitious) films ever made. The heinous Kultur English-dubbed pan-and-scan version is a disgrace and an HUGE disservice to the original. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!. The Rusico version - wide-screen and with restored footage is not perfect (especially the sadly not-restored video), however one can at least appreciate the the original vision of the Director. Additionally, there are a large number of 'DVD bonus features' included - some quite interesting, some rather dull propaganda. But between the restored 7+ hour cut of the film and the extras, this set presents 5 FULL DVDs (compared to Kultur's 6 hour version, with no extras, on 3 DVDs). Perhaps the greatest differenceis the sound. It seems as though there HAS been some sound restoration accomplished; at least the sound was infinately better than on the Kultur version. Skip the English dubbed version. The translation is not very good, and the lines are read in an almost emotionless dead-pan recitation. Also, the restored scenes are virtually missing any dubbing. But in my opinion, if you feel the need to watch this dubbed, then you probably have no business buying it in the first place. If you want to experience one of the world's great films, the Rusico version will be a highlight of your collection.

This is the greatest epic ever made since Abel Gance made Napoleon in 1927. It bigger than Ben Hur and GWTW. The action scenes will never again be equaled in film history and some of the acting is brilliant. Most of all its faithful to leo Tolstoy and if u don't want to plow thru the book spend 7 hours with this film and you will be thrilled and moved for days to come.
