Eastern Promises

A.K.A History of Violence 2 set in England in broken Russian and English. Viggo Mortensen wastes his time and a strong effort. At least he was given some recognition by being nominated. The pacing of the movie is terrible, and the movie easily predictable. The poor dialogue also plagues this movie leading to a noticeable lack of chemistry between the actors. This leads to some tense scenes only because you cannot bear to watch them.

You’ve been warned.

I disagree! Look, I can't stand David Cronenberg, but this movie worked for me. A constant air of tension and look behind the iron curtain of the Russian mob.
