This maybe not the best Georgian movies, but it's not bad
21 August 2003 | by (Tbilisi, Georgia) – See all my reviews

I liked the movie, and reccomend it to any Georgian viewer, it's enjoyable, not exactly Georgian classic but I would give it 7 out of 10. Anyway, there's many action sequences, humor and other enjoyable stuff. And the actors are pretty good too, but the directing is a little f**ked up.
