Quick Movie Review – Eastern Promies

Eastern Promises

Nikolai Luzhin: Sentimental value? Ah. I heard of that.

Perhaps not quite as emotionally edifying as a History of Violence, but the movie has an admirable sense of what to show and when.  A movie that is remarkably restrained without being boring, with a brutally violent streak that never feels overdone, and a great cast and crew working behind it.

8/10
