Becky and I went to see Eastern Promises tonight at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, Colorado with our friends Rod and Kimberly. The Yahoo website at Eastern Promises describes the movie as follows:
“The mysterious and charismatic Russian-born Nikolai Luzhin (Viggo Mortensen) is a driver for one of London’s most notorious organized crime families of Eastern European origin. The family itself is part of the Vory V Zakone criminal brotherhood. Headed by Semyon (Academy Award nominee Armin Mueller-Stahl), whose courtly charm as the welcoming proprietor of the plush Trans-Siberian restaurant impeccably…”
Eastern Promises didn’t deliver on it’s promises. It’s a Russian mobster movie that was far too graphic, moved way too slow and was completely pointless. Our friends thought it was as stupid as we did. It was a movie with potential, but the directing was bad, the story was weak and the film was really graphic with senseless violence whenever anything did happen.
It’s being touted as a Russian Godfather, but it was just a lame gangster movie that wasn’t worth the price of admission even though the acting was good by Naomi Watts and Viggo Mortensen.
This weekend in movies was definitely a total waste of time at the theater.
