Egor Kremnev is a special agent of the Russian intelligence, haunted by his recent failures in the military operations in Colombia, where his whole team was killed. Kremnev was blamed for the tragedy, and stripped of command. Now he is an ordinary agent assigned to seemingly boring surveillance jobs. But it looks like this his troubles are not over. During his last assignment, which promised to be simple and safe, the Colombian tragedy repeated itself - all of his fellow agents were neutralized by unknown foes.
What looks like an ego competition between Russian agent and Jewish oligarch clearly reminds a fruitful "Collaboration" of Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx. The story thus contains a healthy Russian/Jewish humor, including Soviet-time hilarious citations. All the interfering gunmen providing the great Bourne Trilogy style background. Russian Mafia/ KGB, performed by the titular actors, do their best to send their message: "We're not playing around". But the Russian Rambo is , as always, supposed to win twice, and he soundly does prove his point. There's also a drama. Not that deep, it'll leave you crying; still serving a viewer with the half-happy-end surprising dish.
8 out of 10, by the highest Hollywood standards.
