    There are English subtitles.

    I suggest that Ioann was his official name during his reign in Russia.Ivan is more informal.

    The Russians used Cyrillic alphabet, not Latin. What his name was in Cyrillic:
    Ivan IV Vasilyevich (Russian: Ива́н Васи́льевич)

    Ok Stanley
    Why did you post the film?
    the english translation/sub titles really sucked

    the movie drops us into Ivan's life after the abdication and creation of the oprichnina, with no explanation

    poor Ivan the first tzar of all the russias, enemy of the boyar, increased russia's territory, with the conquests of kazan, astrakhan and siber, established the zemsky sobor, created a strong beurocracy which survived foedor and the times of troubles...

    much like the movie, historians focus on the bad, and forget the good
