It wasn't bad, but it needed better story development and to be a little longer.
Have to say I am a bit of a Ryan Reynolds mark...but this was a really good little flick. The ending is gonna make or break it for ya...but I gotta say I really enjoyed this. Anyone else sees this please pm me and let me know if you liked it or not.
It was..... interesting.
The acting was painful at times... and there were a few "WTF" moments... but all in all I enjoyed it.
I don't really know enough about the genre to feel confident in my opinion... but I'll give it a C+ on overall quality, an A for effort and a B+ for overall idea.
Whatever the hell that all means.
I just watched The Nines.
Not sure how it qualifies as horror. Which is how it was billed when I heard about it. It was fine... an interesting take on reality I guess.
Just watched Baby Mama and i want a refund.
Eastern Promises was released in 2007.
Made in England and directed by David Croneberg. Starring Viggo Mortensen, Naomi Watts, Armin Mueller-Stahl and Vincent Cassell.
Like all of Cronenberg's films there is gore but not a lot of it. What there is only serves to illustrate the savagery of the characters and not pander to the lowest common denominator of the audience.
Mortensen steals the movie with his portrayal of a Russian limousine driver who has some difficult questions to answer. The films I've seen of Moretensen's since "The Lord of the Rings" have shown that he is a genuinely gifted actor (check out "A History of Violence"....another great Mortensen performance).
Watts, Mueller-Stahl and Cassell all shine brightly as well and their work only adds to the luster of the film.
Shot in London the movie moves along at a brisk but not frantic pace allowing time for viewers to ponder the scenes and form questions that the movie does not fail to answer.
The plot involves the death of a pregnant Russian girl who gives birth to a baby and the search for her family.
imo, Well worth the money and time for a rental.
