The plane takes off from Moscow in the depth of snowy winter night. After about 30-45 minutes of flight time when the plane performs an emergency landing in Belarus not far from the border, it's a clear and sunny summer's day. (Moscow time is GMT+3, Minsk is GMT+2, time difference is minus one hour, it should be at least dark in Belarus.) And during the film, when it's night in Moscow, it's day-time in Rome, which is only minus two hours (GMT+1). See more »

An incommensurable better than "Night Watch"
14 December 2004 | by gerant-1See all my reviews

"Countdown" - new stunning Russian blockbuster with interesting storyline, amazing stunt performance and great visual effects. It reminds me "Die Hard" with Bruce Willis, but in Russian way. The main theme is very actual for this day: an international terrorism and fight against it, hostages in the circus... and one good guy Alexey Smolin (Makarov) against this international evil. I saw this movie twice and will buy DVD with it, because it's a really good-acting blockbuster! Much better than previous Russian "blockbuster" "Night Watch" with poor scenes and dumb plot with countless holes. Now I believe that Russian filmmakers can do really good blockbuster! Hope to see "Countdown-2" soon!
