The Death of Stalin Trailer Review

This movie looks like it’ll be a lot of fun. Very Four Lions-esque, and if you’ve seen that movie you know exactly what I’m talking about. And if you haven’t, watch it! It’s hilarious.


Stalin was obviously a Russian dictator who lived from 1878 to 1953. Give him a Google it’s quite interesting. And this movie does mirror a lot of what actually happened in Stalin’s death, it even said in the trailer ‘loosely based on a true story’ – this may be the only bit that was true. After Stalin dies a bunch of different men from all walks of life want to be ruler and it feels a lot like the Rat Race movie, but who will win? Who knows.

The list of men for the job include: The Deputy, The Politician, The Son, The Spymaster and The General. They all have their own quirks and characteristics which looks to be very fun to watch.


I think this’ll be a fun movie but I feel like you may need a bit of background to understand what’s really going on. Comparing it to Four Lions again that movie was a comedy about terrorists and they’re a very prominent thing right now so we could get the comedy but with Stalin, we learnt a bit about him in school but not enough. I worry if we don’t get it completely some of the jokes will go right over our heads.

This movie would be great for a day out with friends to laugh along with, it’ll probably also be quite controversial so I’m excited to see what other people think of this movie.

Will you be watching The Death of Stalin?

Until next time.
