The first two opening sequences are enough to watch to get a representation of the mediocrity of a movie.
21 December 2019 | by danielmeenchSee all my reviews

The first two opening sequences are enough to watch to get a representation of the mediocrity of a movie. You can smell rotten fish from the first minutes.

A leading actor Sasha Petrov is thirty years old and looks thirty-five, so when he is represented to us as a young student it is simply implausible. "A junkhead who deals drugs living with his mom" that I would believe. And it's just the start.

The lack of decent introduction of an antagonist played by another nohow actor Ivan Yankovsky leaves the same feeling of being tricked. The whole "night club sequence" looks both poorly acted and overplayed (depends on what actor you are looking at). Yes, it may happen in an up to the neck corrupted country as it was shown - fast and simple. But it doesn't mean that we have to watch it on the screen the same way, without any explanation or backstory or a clue in a simple gesture made by a character in a one tiny few seconds scene before the "plot twist".

And after the ten and a half minutes of pretending-to-be-a-movie, we get an undeservedly pretentious cut with a title of a movie. Like their saying "yes, it can and will be worse"...
