Movie Review: Eastern Promises

The movie is not for the faint of heart, but it's well done and the acting is first rate. It also accurately depicts a Russian Mafia Family operation in Great Britain.

Ooh! Sounds like a good movie. Is it real Russians playing the parts or crappy American's who have horrible accents and will distract me the whole time?

If you're looking for real Russians, you'll be disappointed. If you speak Russian, you'll be disappointed. It's not as violent as the typical Russian mafia "Roof" and it's nothing like being there. But it's not a bad movie.

I do speak, and so it KILLS me when American actors BUTCHER the russian words so they are not even understandable. When they do a good job with them, it's not too bad. Maybe I'll wait until it's on cable.
