Better than expected worse than possible.

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.
