    No, not great, in fact quite bad. Not only it has very few in common with the real T-13 mission, it has a lot of absurd and impossible events. Excellent Russian films, really based on historical missions, are "Gagarin: First in Space" and "The Age of Pioneers".

    You can find the subtitles for Gagarin here:
    https://www.opensubtitles.org/es/search/sublanguageid-all/idmovie-160468
    I don't know a reliable torrent site now, but shouldn't be too hard to find.
    I couldn't find subtitles for The Age of Pioneers, but must there be somewhere also.
    These two are really great movies, historically and technically accurate, based on real missions. "Salyut 7" is full of impossible events and not historical at all, it is rather an action movie.

    Union of Salvation (2019) russia The first trailer.

    In 1816, at the initiative of Alexander Muravyov, a group of young officers of the Russian army founded the Union of Salvation (UoS). The first members had taken part in the Patriotic War of 1812 and in the foreign campaigns of 1813–1814.

    The UoS aimed at the abolition of serfdom and at the introduction of constitutional monarchy by means of armed revolt at the time of next emperor's succession to the throne. While preparing for the seizure of power, the UoS members had to try and expand the society's influence, secure key military and civil posts in government structures, and form public opinion.

    The Union of Salvation (Soyuz spaseniya), formed in 1816, also known as the Society of True and Loyal Sons of the Fatherland since 1817, was the first secret political society of the Decembrists.

    Those muskets were up to 18mm calibre, and with a large heavy soft lead projectile that could remove limbs with the right impact... and some of it was cannon firing grape shot...

    Russia is good at producing war movies and costume dramas and always has been. Also, animated films and cartoons.

    The problem is that the rest of it is shit

    In the Soviet era we also had great comedies, philosophical movies and some of the deeper sci-fi genre as well. But we forgot how to make all that.

    Nobody pays for movies without brain dead plots. Hollywood is the display case for today's movie consumer level.

    Also, there is a chicken and egg problem in this environment. No serious movie can be made if it is not going to make its
    money back. So the level keeps itself low.

    Blackout (2020) and Sputnik (2020) scored spots on top 10 streaming list in USA

    To The Lake (2019) hit excellent numbers and reviews on Netflix

    And that's just latest batch

    Sputnik (2020) especially is widely praised

    According to you

    Audience and critics strongly disagree

    All Soviet comedies were shit

    Other than Tarkovsky's movies all Soviet sci-fi and philosophical movies were shit

    Commies may pretend to like them and they may get airtime solely on dumb nostalgia but everyone with working brain would rather watch Limp Bizkit music video on repeat than suffer through Soviet faux artistic bullshit

    Soviet Union and Yugoslavia produced some excellent movies about the Second World War, I think that overall they were the best in the world with regard to that movie genre.

    Even the Soviet Bloc Poland could not match them, and now it is even worse.

    Romania had some interesting WWII movies, these were often centered on their change of sides in 1944.


    Few Western movies can even match them, a rare exception is the Japanese-U.S. Tora! Tora! Tora! and the British-Greek Escape to Athena, and also the Force 10 from Navarone (the last one was partially a Yugoslav movie).


    I have yet to see some of the more recent Western movies like Anthropoid, Defiance, Fury, or Midway, so I do not know the quality of these movies.



    On the other hand, the Soviet Bloc countries lagged behind the West in the realm of the science fiction movies.

    I heard about these. Haven't watched them yet myself

    Although that they're in Netflix US's top 10 list means rather nothing to me, I can't stand 95% of the Hollywood superhero and feminist rubbish these days that constantly tops the charts.

    According to you

    According to who else?


    All Soviet comedies were shit

    100% of ex-Soviet citizens would disagree including myself

    Gentlemen of Fortune, Ivan Vassilevich changes Profession, Twelve Chairs, The Golden Calf - these are all absolute classics.

    Also when you speak about Soviet cinema, you should pretty much realize that the period of Soviet cinema extends up to about the early 2000s; which was when the Russian movie industry re-orientated itself to just copying Hollywood.
    So from that you also get 90s films such as Peculiarities of the National Hunt; another classic comedy.

    Granted there are a couple other ones which other people like but I never did, such as Diamond Arm.

    This means that you have not watched Soviet films. Cinematography in the USSR was completely higher than anything modern to it in the West.
    Dude, seriously. Gaidai, Bondarchuk, Eisenstein, Danelia, Maslennikov, Ryazanov, Rowe, Menshov, Zakharov, Rostotsky. Do you think their movies are shit?
    Can you tell me that Klushantsev filmed shit? Or have you just never watched them?

    Autumn of 1941. The Nazis are advancing on Moscow. The red Army is exhausted and drained of blood, and the arrival of reserves from distant regions is still weeks and months away. Under these conditions, the Soviet command throws into battle its last operational reserve-cadets of military schools near Moscow. These guys had to hold the defense for two days - and lasted almost 3 weeks. Losses amounted to about 80% - less than 500 of the 3,500 cadets survived. The losses of the Nazis, who had a superior force, amounted to more than 5,000 infantry and more than 100 tanks in this sector of the front.
