One of the most brilliant modern books (Boris Akunin) get bad movie. Yes, the movie literally follow the book, but nothing else.
Annoing acting. There is no suspense. No visual effects. No Fandorin (the biggest disappointment)! And, as result, no movie. I had feeling, that the film is too long.
The best of all is Emilia Spivak (Esfir): her acting is way above everybody else's. I liked Oleg Tabakov (Prince Dolgoroukoy) and Aleksei Gorbunov (Rahmet) too, but all other actors only do very hard work, not playing.
Only 4 of 10 :-(
