An average movie

Before watching this flick, I had never heard of it before so I wasn't sure what I should expect. First of all, even though the actors were all pretty good and delivered some solid performances, it was still some rather weird piece of casting, if you ask me. I mean, 3 of the main characters are supposed to be Russian but, in fact, they are Australian (Nicole Kidman) and French (Vincent Cassel and Mathieu Kassovitz). Why?!? In my opinion, it was the major issue with this movie but a part from that, it was pretty enjoyable. Indeed, I liked the whole concept of this guy ordering a new wife from Russia but the whole thing eventually blows up in this face and all the actors involved were pretty good, even if they weren't even Russian. It was also rather funny to see Ben Chaplin again. What happened to this guy actually??! I remember seeing him in a few flicks during the 90's but since then, he seems to have vanished... Anyway, in spite of its flaws, it remains a rather entertaining crime comedy and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Yes, intriguing concept but didn't enjoy as much the direction that the film takes in the second half.

Yeah, it is pretty unbalanced and flawed, absolutely
