After watching some of new Russian movies, I was surprised that I liked this one. Really, it is quite entertaining and I enjoyed watching it. Of course some of the things don't seem realistic (like killing 30 people at time, I think that he would have at least 10 bullets in his body :D), but as the whole plot is quite interesting you can easily close your eyes at this kinda things. I can't say that this was the best Russian movies in 2008, but I think it was one of the best... This movies contains everything,interesting plot, nice play by actors, beautiful scenery of Monaco, it's adventurous thriller with some very cute jokes, so I advice it to everyone who likes this kind of movies. Hope you'll enjoy it.
