Normally I would say “Wow!” here, but considering the star I think it’s more appropriate for me to say “Whoa!”

This is a fine example of how pure unmitigated vengeance can become a thing of beauty.

All cylinders are firing on target here.  Awesome cinematography, awesome stuntwork, great characterizations and a flashback format of storytelling that for once does not annoy me.  And like High Moon, I absolutely love how they did the subtitles for when the characters were speaking Russian.

My only complaint is that I have absolutely no memory of this film hitting the cinemas.  I wish I had known about it when it was first released last year, cuz I really would’ve loved to have seen it on the big screen.
