When Renko shoots Iamskoy and the public baths, Iamskoy falls backward over the railing. He starts to fall straight down, which would be logical. But the aerial shot shows him landing out in the pool, in the water, several feet from the edge of the pool. He should have landed on the pool deck, not in the water. See more »
Too many people in our society disappear. They fall into a gulf.
What sort of gulf?
The gulf between what is said and what is done.
[Renko is talking very loudly, and Andreev's lab technicians are listening]
You may not be much longer for this world, my fine imprudent fellow.

I saw this movie and unfortunately was very disappointed. After reading the brilliant book written by Martin Cruz Smith I expected a brilliant screenplay in movie form. I was wrong, many characters are missing which are vital to the story line and Hurt's performance of the title character is not believable, his accent isn't even right! Not that I don't think Hurt is a talented actor, I just didn't feel he was the right person for the part. The only thing that made the movie bearable for me was the the perfect casting choice of Lee Marvin as the American. It was as though this part was written for him and no one else. If you want to see the movie, read the book first (its will explain the holes in the plot for you) and enjoy one of Lee Marvin's last great performances!
