Great Soviet atmosphere with a minor resemblance of Scorsese’s Taxi driver. A Nice Watch.
Cool and clinical. Still showing the roughness of post soviet collapse.
Skeletal Russian action film highlighting the cultural, spiritual, and moral void created by years of Soviet rule.
For me one of the best Russian movies. With one of the best soundtracks in Russian movies, which helps to feel the atmosphere much more.
an amazing atmosphere, also Sergei Bodrov jr fits the role perfectly👌🏻
Amazing gangster movie based in my birth town. Very unique, and unlike the American-Italian gangster movies most are used to. Must watch.
There was a sincere reality of a life in a russian gang and the disconnection from the stupitidies of the world with music :)
Wonderful movie, with great soundtrack. Style is similar to the style of Scorsese, especially Taxi Driver,
Amazing representation of 90's culture in after soviet Russia. Serhei Bodrov is an outstanding actor.
A simple story about a small time Russian crook.
Danila goes to his successful brother, Victor, in Petersburg to start a new life. Unknown to Danila, Victor is a contract killer, but is in hiding after asking for too much money to assassinate a Chechen mob boss. To avoid exposure, Victor convinces Danila to kill the boss instead.
Arriving in Moscow, Chechen War veteran Danila (Sergei Bodrov Jr) meets Konstantin, an old friend who tells him that his twin brother has been forced into signing a crooked contract with a US ice hockey team. Soon after this meeting, Danila discovers Konstantin dead and he sets out to avenge his death; a journey that leads him to Chicago and a whole new experience.
