Unexpected Greatness

I haven't written a review in a while, but felt compelled to for Eastern Promises, a film I had no knowledge about before heading into the theater last night. In fact, the only reason my girlfriend and I watched it last night was because the theater complex was being renovated and only had 3 movies playing on a Friday night! After the first half hour, I noticed the big named stars, Viggo Mortens... read more

Promised but didn't deliver.

The recent David Cronenberg/Viggo Mortensen partnership has spawned two films and Eastern Promises is the one I saw first. It was really a case of not having any solid expectations, but literally thinking that a disappointment was not mathematically possible from this director/actor combination. I was very surprised how lowly I had to rate this film at the end.

Expensive cars, sadistic acts of violence, stylish suits & superb acting is what makes David Cronenberg's Russian-mob movie, Eastern Promises, a modern-classic. Better than A History Of Violence, a film on the same vein but not better than his bizarre-cult Videodrome and the sci-fi great The Fly.

Anyways, this film reminded me of GTA: San Andreas in some areas and I swear, the whole ... read more

The film follows the mysterious and ruthless Nikolai, who is tied to one of London's most notorious organized crime families. His carefully maintained existence is jarred when he crosses paths with Anna, an innocent midwife trying to right a wrong, who accidentally uncovers potential evidence against the family. Now Nikolai must put into motion a harrowing chain of murder, deceit, and retribution.

"First viewing - Feb. 22nd I'm beginning to worry that Cronenberg's post-horror run just isn't for me. Eastern Promises has some interesting aspects, yet feels like a film with a story I've seen done before and better. It's got enough going on all around that I was able to hang with it, but none of it ever resonated with me in any meaningful way. Yes, the cast does a good job, but it's all so underwhelming. It's not poorly made, just empty, and I'm surprised it's so well-liked."
