Decent, Pretty good but very predictable
1 November 2012 | by ci_oragwuSee all my reviews

It is a very decent movie/documentary. Void of unnecessary drama. Interesting tale, and one can relate to the story. There's a feel good tinge to it. There isn't the usual unnecessary gore associated with films of this genre. The visual effects were quite good too, sound could do with some help. Predictable ending but its one of those flicks you keep on watching though you know how it ends. Its nice to see the portrayal of the antagonists in a more subtle yet compelling light.I watched it in Russian which I do not understand, but was still worth my time. Enjoyed it, but will not watch it more than twice. I recommend it.
