Did not expect much, but was pleasantly surprised
9 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you can look past the pre-World Cup campaign and Urgand/Khabensky duo that is clearly miscast and is fed by Russian movie industry as the Russian international stars, the movie is actually very nice. Kids most certainly stole the show. Their athletic ability, as well as acting, was absolutely superb. The "star" cast was sub-par, Jovovich overplays her part, Urgand is out of place. He is an extremely talented show host and comic improviser, but he is not an actor. Well, maybe not yet. Khabensky seems to be playing the same guy in every movie (aside from Admiral). His character always seems to be drunk. All in all, worth watching with the family. A solid 6 stars.
