Also known as Domovoy (tiff) this was a decent little Russian assassin movie. Good story (if a wee bit predictable), slick action and a cool bad guy made it a respectable entry in this year’s lineup.
My biggest complaint was the music. It was bad, which I can deal with, but it was also unbelievably loud. Some shrill woman’s voice singing in Russian with the volume so high in the mix that several people in the theatre actually had to plug their ears, including Nellie. The rest of the sound was fine…dialogue, gun shots, cars, everything…but when the music came in it was like nails on a chalkboard. Hopefully they clean that up.
