Storyline

Moskow police detective Andrei Somov resigns and emigrates from Russia, but has to accept a menial job in a restaurant while his adolescent son and pregnant daughter-in-law are denied exit visa's. 'Andy' does however get to know some LAPD cops after volunteering his expertise and Russian language skills and is sent to Tijuana to fetch cheap tiles. On that Mexican journey Somov bumps into coyote Larry, another ethnic Russian but US citizen, who lost his daughter years ago and now helps illegal families enter the States. His present client, arrogant Russian Lena, haughtily presumes to know everything better but is always wrong, yet he takes pity on her daughter. Meanwhile the LAPD takes medium Michael March seriously about a mad bomber who targets pharmaceutical companies and got a bad feeling with and envelop held by Larry. It all ties in.

26 August 2005 | by (Oxford, England) – See all my reviews

Having sat through this mess I was very surprised to see it had consumed a quoted estimated budget of $10M. Where did they spend that? The acting from all, with the possible exception of the little girl, was terrible. The special effects, which included firing guns, were a joke - cartoons have more realism.

As for the story..... where was it? Simply a sequence of disjointed, badly acted and badly produced scenes.

Was there anything positive? Well.... yes. I was impressed with the fact that natives of Russia spoke Russian and those of Mexico spoke Spanish instead of the universal American that spoils so many other films.

The punchline for the film appears to be "He borders on insanity". Trouble is, it's not clear who they are referring to. On this evidence, most of those involved in throwing this together would be valid candidates.
