First Finnish action movie?
2 December 2004 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

The most successful Finnish movie producer Spede Pasanen contacted these young fellows and offered to produce their movie. This is the result. The film's budget was 1.000.000 Finnish marks - which was nice amount of money in Finnish film budget scale then (it is only 170.000 Euros).

Romanovin kivet (The Romanov's stones) is also the first film of director Aleksi Mäkelä - who is nowadays one of the most successful film directors of Finland. He is also the only director (beside Renny Harlin) who can make great action scenes. The script is the weakest link in this one. It's a bunch of clichés and looks like it has been made by group of schoolboys. Which it is - in some ways. Mäkelä invited a group of his old friends (Samuli Edelmann, Santeri Kinnunen, Juha Veijonen, Kari Hietalahti) to star in the movie and together they planned the story. So there's many holes in the plot, but most of them are forgotten when you see the action scenes we were never seen in Finland before - made by us Finnish. This is of course absolutely worst film of Aleksi Mäkelä - but you must start somewhere.

7/10
