This movie was terrible. The link to write a review was not working so I'm writing in response to your comment. Acting sucked. The story was contrived. And I'm shocked by how many people actually liked it. Worse than listening to annoying Russian people is listening to annoying Russian people who can't act. I think about 10 minutes into the movie when the goofy son of the mob boss said "money is my god" is when i nearly vomited on the person sitting in front of me. Occasionally i would drift off sleep and dream of a good movie and then wake up only to see the film taking excessively violent, yet laughable, turns in a pathetic attempt to make the movie seem well made.

jdkealy, you realize that the actors weren't all actually Russian? By that yardstick, evidently they can act pretty well.

As for that "money is my god" line, that's not even in this movie. You really have an eye for nuance.

k. I have read both of your comments, and after careful introspective contemplation, I have come to the conclusion that the movie still sucked.

and Keel, the goofy son did say something like Money is My God. Watch the movie again if you must, but if you have to watch it again, save yourself the pain and just fast forward to the scene where the goofy son is cutting up the body in the barber shop. It's in that scene.

Anyways, I understand that pop culture worships bad movies and bad music, after all Titanic won best film and Britney Spears went platinum. That stuff is bubble gum for saps, and this crap is bubble gum for masochists.

Okay if you don't know what you're talking about you really shouldn't comment. this movie was amazing and gripping and it's not bubblegummy. I don't understand where in the world you would get that word to describe a movie like this. Just shut up.
