Aleksey is an ordinary young man living in Russia during the 1990s. Like most of his contemporaries, he is looking for a way to survive. The easiest way is the way of crime. He joins a gang. Fortunately, his fate takes a sudden turn and he manages to find the right path. The film also addresses global terrorism, one of the most important and painful issues of today's world. The main characters of the film, together with their American colleagues, take part in a special operation to destroy a band of international terrorists and drug traffickers. One of the scenes takes place on an American aircraft-carrier. It is from this aircraft-carrier that Aleksey and his friends start on their way to destroy the terrorist base hidden in the jungle.

Better than expected worse than possible.
3 June 2009 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

Quite nice Russian movie. Well sort of a parody of an American action movies, but nevertheless better than average. What bugged me during the movie, is the constant background music. During almost the whole action scenes, as well as dialogs. Pretty strange. Like a musical video of a good band performing. What I did like, was the idea, the philosophical aspect, and a short glimpse of the Russian "post - perestroika" patriotism. The main character is nice and the battle scenes. But again

  • the music. There was not a single moment when I didn't want it to


stop. All the tension was gone, and instead of feeling sympathy for the characters, was feeling quite like watching 3D animated, when you don't really give a damn about the plot, you just having fun watching it.
