It starts out great, the energy and quick banter you’d expect from the creator of VEEP, but runs out steam once the third act hits. Still a pretty interesting and fun watch, with a solid cast.

I was disappointed in this film. Given the outstanding reviews, I expected something exceptional. The film could not decide whether it was satire, thriller, slapstick, or historical fiction. It swung back and forth from one to the other, noneI was disappointed in this film. Given the outstanding reviews, I expected something exceptional. The film could not decide whether it was satire, thriller, slapstick, or historical fiction. It swung back and forth from one to the other, none of them quite good enough to carry the film. Expand

THis movie is about the time when Stalin died and the other people who had the power were ''fighting'' to get the ''throne''. It is a decent movie, but I sort of expected something a bit funnier.

It is a decent movie, but I sort of expected something a bit funnier. I mean I have read about how it all actually went down and some things are added here for comedic effect of course and some just added to make the story much shorter. I had highher expectations from this I guess. Expand

I give this film a 5 because I had no reaction to it. I didn't laugh, I didn't cry. I didn't find it droll. I wouldn't say it was a waste of time, but neither would I say it was time well spent.

I wouldn't say it was a waste of time, but neither would I say it was time well spent. I think perhaps I was hypnotized by the impression that something might be about to happen, but nothing ever did. It just went on and on for a while and then it ended and what exactly it was, or meant to be, I really couldn't say. Was it comedy? Was it satire? I really just don't know.

In the end, I think it was a nice idea that strove to be something, but failed to achieve.

But MY GOD That first hour!

MY GOD THAT FIRST HOUR! Its not funny in the least. Its DUMB. Like absurdism done badly. And I would love to see how high of a score a boring movie like this one, and as absurd, but in the context of 1776 USA,

And I would love to see how high of a score a boring movie like this one, and as absurd, but in the context of 1776 USA, or the Civil War, or or or

Im guessing not as high
