So yeah, yesterday about half of my class (myself included - 5 people total) skipped our Russian class and went to see the movie, Eastern Promises (starring Naomi Watts and Viggo Mortensen)...Anyways, I honestly have to say that the movie was amazing! When you think Russian mafia you will definitely always think of this movie after having seen it. And yes, it is rated R for a reason (the opening scene a guy gets his throat sawed/sliced with a barber's razor) and it might not be for the squeamish (the girl sitting next to me kept whining and covering her eyes), but despite that it is still a great movie.

I really could continue on about the movie, but then I'd start running into spoilers galore, but for those of you who wish to know more a plot summary can be found on IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0765443/plotsummary). As for the rest of you who have seen the movie, what are your thoughts? And for those of you looking forward to seeing it, well, you can post here too...

Well I won't say that Naomi's character is anything amazing...She's just kinda what one would think as the typical British girl...Now as for Viggo and his character, as well as some of the other Russian mobsters...Viggo's character, Nikolai, is the [driver/body disposal] man! I would put the character up there as one of the best anti-heroes in modern cinema (V is still tops in that category for me though)...
