Anastasiya Slanevskaya is a Russian pop singer whose stage name is Slava. The song playing in the background in one of the scenes at Lisa's home is hers, called "V nebo ya slyozy ronyayu...". To prepare for the role of a soldier, Slanevskaya watched Aliens (1986) and G.I. Jane (1997) many times. Director Mikhail Khleborodov, who met her when he was making her second music video "Poputchitsa" back in 2004, used her real name for the credits because he wanted everyone to like her and Slava already had her own reputation. According to Slanevskaya, actors don't like singers getting roles in movies but she was lucky because no one from the crew recognized her, except for Khleborodov. She thinks the male cast accepted her when Khleborodov brought them together to read the script and they saw she could swear like them when she made a mistake while reading. A few days into filming, actor Anatoliy Belyy even told her she was a great actress and asked in which theatre she played. See more »
After seeing Night Watch & Day Watch, Volkodav and others masterpieces of modern Russian action oriented cinema I was quite disappointed with this flick. Movie was very well presented with a brilliant PR over the net and other news medias, but the movie was a total disaster.
Part 1 didn't offer anything. But a promise of more and better action story was given for the film 2.
After watching the second one the disappointment was complete. Acting wasn't good, storyline non-existent. Good filmed fighting scenes, but that's it....
The movie didn't have anything to offer and watching is a total waste of time...
