Storyline

Agent of special department "Piranha" Kirill Mazur and his colleague Olga go to the far north with the assignment to liquidate an underwater secret weapon lab in the guise of a mutual vacation. All of a sudden, they find themselves in the world where civilization laws are forgotten, and this deadly weapons are kept by gangsters who are controlled by a new "master of taiga" Prohor, whose leisure time is spent hunting at humans. Mazur didn't know that he would have to trade his familiar gun for a hand-made bone knife, and save his companion and himself instead of saving the world. For them, this safari in northern forests would be no less dangerous as for the live targets. Written by russart.com

Excellent action from Russia-lively, bright and amazing!!!
10 April 2006 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

Well, Russians shot the movie Hollywood have a rest!!! The plot is simple and only the form for colorful adventure. Colonel Mazur, a charming brutal hero a la Bond, is ordered to explode secret laboratory in the deep Siberian forest. He was accompanied by a beautiful scientist girl. They executed the order,but trapped into the hands of native landlord Prohor,mad freak,cocaine's and a type of old Russian "barin". Mazur and his companion got into colorful 19 century style village. Soon they know they are part of great man-hunting Prohor's favorite game. Well, it must be seen!!! This movie is somewhere similar to a Bruce Willis action, like Die Hard or Fifth Element. The same energy, humor and non-stop action!!! Okhota is beautiful for its incredible atmosphere: action, comedy, social and national spirit. Mashkov is beautiful playing the role of cool ironic man and so Mironov in his comic and somewhere tragic role of Prohor. The director Andrey Cavun demonstrates a big talent not only in action but in a drama too. Respect!!!
