Battleship Potemkin Movie Review Summary

Actors: Aleksandr Antonov, Vladimir Barsky

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Battleship Potemkin

The year is 1905. Russia is restive following the disastrous Russo-Japanese War. Sailors aboard the Russian Battleship Potemkin anchored in Odessa harbor feel restless and oppressed. They have lost confidence in their leaders. When served rotten maggoty meat, they refuse to eat. This is considered mutinous, and they are punished. The sailors rebel and capture control of the ship. A priest assigned to the ship is portrayed as demented, totally in league with the evil officers. In reprisal for the killing of a sailor, the mutinous crew shells the town of Odessa. A squadron loyal to the government is sent to regain the battleship. The squadron passes by the Potemkin, without firing -- apparently they are sympathetic.
