(2003) The Return
(In Russian with English subtitles)

Overrated and below par Russian film which is also supposed to be symobolic, but with a simplistic storyline has a set up where a father finally comes home after many years without knowing who he is or what he does for a living, and the two children who cannot grasp to accept him as their actual father during a cross country road trip turning to unfortunate tragedy resolving nothing!

I liked alot of the actual locales of Russia, but cannot relate to the childrens pessimistic and harsh treatmeant toward a unbekowingist father who wants to make amends for his lost time, when I know alot more people who're worst than him, whenever I watch the news or read the newspapers and speaking as a realist!

(1987) Last Man Standing

Third or fourth or whatever updated revision of Akira Kurosawa's 1961 classic "Yojimbo" before Sergio Leone remade his own as a western called "A Fistful Of Dollars" using the idea of the anti-hero using two warring factions against each other then topping it off by copying a John Woo's "A Better Tomorrow" movie since he wasn't yet well known in North America. This is yet the weakest version of the bunch starring Bruce Willis as the main lead in this routine of a plot.
