"Countdown" - new stunning Russian blockbuster with interesting storyline, amazing stunt performance and great visual effects. It reminds me "Die Hard" with Bruce Willis, but in Russian way. The main theme is very actual for this day: an international terrorism and fight against it, hostages in the circus... and one good guy Alexey Smolin (Makarov) against this international evil. I saw this movie twice and will buy DVD with it, because it's a really good-acting blockbuster! Much better than previous Russian "blockbuster" "Night Watch" with poor scenes and dumb plot with countless holes. Now I believe that Russian filmmakers can do really good blockbuster! Hope to see "Countdown-2" soon!
