I didn't think this was one of David Cronenberg's best offerings.
I had hoped to get a real feel for the psyche and motivation of the Russian Mafia in the US. But even with the slice em up dice em up violence, the
film somehow seemed "fluffy"
Viggo Mortensen was believable in his role as were most of the cast but their was a weakness in the overall energy of the film.
Naomi Watts is a much better actress than this roll afforded and she was cute as ever but....
I wish I had of gone and seen "3:10 to Yuma" again as it was just down the hall.
If you see Eastern Promises; please give me your feedback. Maybe I misses something.
I'm broke so the reviews will be alittle less frequent...still.......
Please turn off your cell phones...........
