| Rocky 4 told from Ivan Drago's perspective
When IMDb closed down it's comment section, I pretty much quit this site. But I had to log in again to do this movie some justice.

It's good. It's really really good.

It starts out a bit slow and Shia LaBeouf is not exactly a good actor; but he pulls off an impressive performance in this movie. I actually forgot that it was him playing the part about halfway in. Sverrir Gudnason however is the one who really deserves all the praise. He carries this movie throughout. His resemblance to Björn both in form and behavior is almost uncanny.

The strength in this movie his however the script. It flows. The character introduction is brief, the script is well balanced between past, present and future. It builds up really nicely to the third act, and it pays off.

Rarely do I feel satisfied after watching a movie these days. But this was a grand slam. I highly highly recommend it.
