I watched this film not really expecting much, I got far more than I hoped for. firstly a couple of things you should know:
1) Vinnie Jones only does a cameo role, but thats a good thing in my opinion.
2) This film is from Kazahkstan, I assume the actors are also. I like world cinema, again no bad thing.
For me this film was a real discovery, the plot was well thought out and fairly easy to follow. There were enough twists for it to stay interesting throughout. Fight scenes were good and kept realistic. The dialogue was good, characters engaging and the cinematography looked gritty (I'm no expert but I know when something looks crap). I would actually consider visiting Kazahkstan off the back of watching this movie, it looked like a cool place.
Heartily recommend The Liquidator, very good action movie, better than a lot of stuff coming out of the UK and the states. I really enjoyed it.
