I liked the film a lot. Sure enough, as an action film, it is more realistic than the Rambo movies, but it is not its biggest merit. I'd recommend watching the film only for the sake of getting to know the Russian perspective on things - Westerners, Chechen "freedom-fighters", the Russian army, Moscow, the Russian "outback", etc).

I did not see any problem with Ian Kelly's acting, he looked quite convincing to me - after all he was playing the role of a British actor.

My favourite quote from the film:

John: This is an offence against our human rights!

Chechen (in Russian): What does he want?

Russian translator (in Russian): He wants to drink.

Chechen (in Russian): Tell him to shut up or he'll get the gun-stock.

Russian translator: John, shut up.
