That in fact is true. Vasha isn't Charles Bronson movie. Vasha is a story about brotherhood. About betraying. About vendetta. Vasha is not very good movie. At least it's not the movie I definitely would recommend everyone to see.
First I had quite high hopes on the movie. If you can say this. Anyway I was hoping decent action revenge thriller because the story first seemed quite intriguing and interesting. And all I got was disappointment. There were lot holes in the story and there weren't nothing that can compensate this. Acting was average. Even below average. Mart Müürisepp (Tom) overacted almost throughout the whole movie. Little bit too much smiles and silly faces. Only character that earned my sympathy was Tom's mother. But all the performances failed to bring out the tension between characters. Directing was quite OK. I think it all got stuck behind low budget. On the other hand, there is numerous very good movies out there done even lesser budget.
Now the big problem with the movie was, it tried to be serious. Meaningful. But it failed. Some clichéd narrated lines that tried to give forward some wiseness. This movie had worked better with bit more action and blood. And better dialog. I mean, Tom was meant to be wise- ass. I hoped the best lines and jokes coming from him. He wasn't smart- ass enough.
Strongest part of the movie was Rein Kotov's cinematography.
Overall, Vasha is below average film that tries to be more than it is.
Oh yeah. I almost forgot. Best line was by Artur: This is not Charles Bronson movie.
