The only thrill to this movie was how predictable it was...
11 January 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This movie was a thriller? Really? I found it more to be somewhat of a strange hybrid of a teen movie and a crime movie, but never really managing to score high on any genre in particular.

The story in "Natasha" was quite simple, and really predictable, which made the movie somewhat boring. Natasha (played by Elena-Cristina Marchisano) is an A-grade student in Russia who has earned a place in an exchange student program and is scheduled to go to England and study for a year. But a tragic event takes places and Natasha ends up dead, shot dead, taking a bullet that was meant for Anna (played by Algina Lipskis). Scared and at a loss, Anna takes on Natasha's person and identify and goes to England, pretending to be Natasha. Here she stays in a small town, living with a vicar and his family, but the young Russian turns out to turn the entire family's life upside down. But her ties to Russia runs deep and by sheer luck, the criminals there manages to find out about her whereabouts.

Fairly straight forward story, although it wasn't anything unique or particularly interesting. All throughout the movie, you sit with the feeling that this movie was just a long, continual randomly put together short video clips, because there wasn't a visible red line through the movie, and it was far too jumpy to be properly coherent.

The acting in "Natasha" was fairly average, nothing out of the usual here to be seen. So don't expect any award-winning performances here.

There is a lot of unnecessary nudity in this movie, and it does absolutely nothing to further the story along in anyway. It actually borders on the edge of being pornographic and tasteless. I found it to be hindering to the movie and it just slowed the movie down, making it more difficult to sit through.

Also, it made me wonder why all people in Russia speaks English, and not Russian. Personally, I hate it when they make movies and don't use the native language to the location of the movie, but opt to use some horrible, stereotypical accent instead.

This movie failed to make any kind of lasting impression on me, and I can honestly say that this is a movie that I will not be watching a second time.
