The russians were always touted as being the most ruthless and evil criminals but in this case i think they got lessons from the croats and serbs .... michael caine plays a mush bag loser and michael keaton plays a no brain loser ... you should always be careful of spiders in the wood box .. this film has many lurking spiders ready to spoil the day ... a little porno on the side of evil and a bit of do gooder on the side of decency and humanity ... good always wins over evil in case you didn't know the plot of this film
