Somewhat shoddy but actually interesting in a way.

The movie isn't as bad as I thought it would be after first 10 minutes or so. There are English dialogues (translated shortly afterwards by a Russian narrator which makes it hard to follow) and most Russian dialogues actually have English subtitles. It can be watched but it can be frustrating, especially in the needlessly chaotic beginning (actually makes more sense "all hell breaks loose"). The movie does well to describe a situation where a bunch of military prisoners (hardly anyone much over 20) takes over a muddy, dark underground prison facility, completely surrounded by hostiles, with no way out, abandoned by their own, unable to trust anyone outside, and torn from the inside by severe differences in character. It's hardly a stunner but does its job well despite several annoyances and some illogical bits. Much better than the "Escape From Afghanistan" dubbed reissue I reckon.
