Eastern Promises (2007) – 4/5

Eastern Promises (2007)

Next: “Atonement” (2007)

Great acting and original story. Intense at a lot of times w/quite a dark tone.

I have to take issue a bit w/ the premise, but that can be said for a lot of movies. It just seems that she really asked for trouble just going to some Russian restaurant and letting the clearly creepy old guy translate the diary. I wd think the police or Russian consulate or something wd have been better. I’m sure they cd have gotten to the same place in the story w/ good writing.

Unfortunately also, I kinda figured out that Viggo’s character was undercover. I didn’t really hurt the story though.
