The plane takes off from Moscow in the depth of snowy winter night. After about 30-45 minutes of flight time when the plane performs an emergency landing in Belarus not far from the border, it's a clear and sunny summer's day. (Moscow time is GMT+3, Minsk is GMT+2, time difference is minus one hour, it should be at least dark in Belarus.) And during the film, when it's night in Moscow, it's day-time in Rome, which is only minus two hours (GMT+1). See more »

Bad to funny
22 December 2007 | by See all my reviews

If the intention was to create a parody on hostage taking movies, the authors succeeded brilliantly. I was first really annoyed at being made fun of, but in the end had a great laugh throughout. I would recommend anybody to see the film in English translation because it gets even funnier. Nothing is real - characters, motivation of their actions, acting, make-up, dialogs, stage setting, proprieties, nothing. Absolutely hilarious!

The one problem seems to be the fact that the film has too clear a political agenda and passes some very childish messages: FSB has absolute authority; tycoons are the villains (Pokrovskiy > Berezovskiy), not all Chechens are bad, only manipulated by the villains etc. Soviet-style propagandist cinema in a new era, just of really sub-standard quality.
