Not only do these actors get good reviews. "Great" - not the best historical picture, if you believe the words of those who had time to look at it. In order to talk about reliability, you should first read the work of Pikul called "Favorite". It needs to be screened after that. Many TV viewers say this.
The viewer very often "pities" Shakurov. Comparing his game in the "Great" with the game in the "Palace coups". The difference is palpable. Although only this actor plays "really" well in this film.
The play of Pavel Derevyanko the viewer is also not particularlyimpressed. Just like the work of Julia Snigir. Natalia Surkova played her role magnificently. In short, the film was rated by few. Reviews about it are quite contradictory.
Actors of the movie "Great" ... Did they play wellyour characters? It is worthwhile once again to compare their game with other actors in such paintings ("Catherine" or "Tudors"). The latter unequivocally win. However, even if Reese Myersa Alexandrova is not up to the charisma, then, compared to the game of the main character of the "Great", she's just a fine fellow! What is the problem of the characters of the TV series "The Great"? The viewer claims that they seem to be some sort of cardboard-patterned, played in some "wrong" traditions.
Derevyanko (Pyotr Alekseevich) played his parta little clumsy. The hero of it did not turn out, according to critics and viewers. Looking at the game Yatsenko, who played in "Catherine", you understand that the choice of the actor is more successful.
Ekaterina, performed by Snigir, was also not appreciated by many. In a word, opinions about the game of actors are divided.
Let's sum up. The viewer leaves different opinions about the film "The Great". Actors and roles impressed not everyone. Someone liked the work of artists, some did not. Nevertheless, the film did not remain without attention. To see it to you or not, you decide for yourself. It is worth saying one thing: if you are interested in history, be sure to pay attention to the picture! Surely you will be interested to evaluate the work of the director and actors.
