    1. Vory v Zakone are all in their 80's. They have been replaced by much more violent and more powerful mafia's.2. No one in the movie speaks Russian - or close to understable Russian... A lot of of the time - had to switch he subtitles on to understand... 3. No story line what so ever... 4. Movie only concetrates on tattoos and throat cutting... Which russian mafia's excel in - however - no real ties to the real underworld. 5. I THOUGHT I SAW THE WRONG MOVIE AT FIRST - COMPLETE GARBAGE... WOULD NOT RECOMMEND EVEN IF YOU ARE ABLE TO SEE IT FOR FREE...

    Having seen Viggo Mortenson in "A History Of Violence" I know what a wonderful actor he has become. I have not seen "Eastern Promises" yet I intend to, most likely by renting the video. The synopsis intrigues me, so I am eager for it to come out on DVD.P.S. I have just re-rented "A History Of Violence" something I rarely do!!

    A brilliant and striking film, but too bloody and sadistic for my taste. It isn't entertainment, but it is a near-perfect example of film art.
