Great TV series!

Author: TWD_Cliff_Notes from Toronto, Canada

"Ubojnaya sila", which can be loosely translated as "killer force" is a funny and intelligent new Russian TV series, a brilliant addition to the famous "Menty". The new cast is great, especially the funny man Fedortsev (as lieutenant Rogov) and the dialogue is witty and original. Somewhat less serious than the "Menty", it nevertheless makes a suspenseful viewing, and the element of slapstick is very tasteful and perfectly realistic. Other excellent cast members include Habenski as the ironical captain Plakhov, as well as Lavrov and Sadalski in their brilliant cameos. Overall, a funny, intelligent, and entertaining TV series. I give it a 10.

Heroes of our time

Author: hmsgroop from Samara, Russia
18 October 2002

The same characters that can be found in "Menty" are present in this film, but the place of action is Chechnya. The film combines the merits of a TV series and action thriller, and few of their drawbacks. The film does not picture dead-earnest cops, but has a wonderful touch of humour. At the same time it is not a comic series about war. It's very true to life, as it has both funny and gloomy sides. The actors who are cast in the film are very popular in Russia, and their characters are a mark of the time. They can truly be called heroes of our time.
