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.

I thought the story and effects might have been weak but the acting was pretty good. A lot of these actors are well respected thespians from Russia. So overall, the acting was done well. Maybe the writing could have been a little better. Sometimes, the best actors can't make anything out of a bad script (Ex Halle Barry in Catwoman). The budget of $10 million wasn't just for these film. From what I understand, there was a whole series that was in Russia. This was just the opening movie and then several episodes followed. I heard it did really well in Russia. Again, some of the effects were cheesy but when you are trying to do a whole series for that much money, things can look cheesy.
