"Let nothing divide us." "Shoulder to shoulder." "All against one." The massacre scene was very horrific, so disturbing especially the scene which The Untouchables could have been emulated, the baby on the stairs. Battle scenes were so realistic and artistically shot. The bountiful extras never disappointed while the score, editing and camera work was exceptional. Battleship Potemkin is a monumental war film filled with drama.

Also, Eisenstein transmitted highly controversial, catastrophic and totally revolutionary ideas for those times, like if he stood for the population of the Soviet Union in its totality trying to speak out loud. With a movie like Bronenosets Potyomkin he didn't only create a masterpiece establishing his own filmic style which would be recognized for several decades to come, but he also was one of the few directors that actually understood the meaning of …
