not so bad
10 January 2021 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

A bit surprised by this film, its a lovely revenge thrillerdrama, involving criminal elements from russia, somewhere southern parts of california, even upfront the norwegian seamens church theyve chosen to shoot a pretty violent scene.

its all about money, where small entrepeneurs go dire straits because the bank wont lend money for running expences, and pretty coincidentally they get in touch with people with money when attending a marriage, but they are gangsters that turns the gun at you almost immediatly.

even though its good there are lots of storystrains that vanish out in the sand, and faces that you think will be important thats never shown or used again. also hard to nail the timeline here. so it could be better plotted and the story could have been made more visual.

but acting is fairly good and the final revenge tastes blood, also with a female caracter that can blow the wheel wrench more than just once to underline her true feelings( usually women beats once and then runs to be caught and killed in almost every western killer thrillers, except the superhero dames) so its a film to watch when it arrives in your local cinema theater.its a 7 and a recommend from the grumpy old man
