Cheesy Russian Pulp
25 January 2000 | by (Atlanta) – See all my reviews

"Assa" would have made a better vehicle for Stallone, but considering the taste of the average Soviet moviegoer........I guess my real objection to movies like this is that they waste the time and talent and money that could be spent making better movies or feeding the poor.
