Eastern Promises

Since I took yesterday off I decided to watch my latest title from Netflix, Easter Promises. I have to say I was a little disappointed.

The acting was decent, the direction was at least good, but there was little special about this film. No stand-out scenes or shots. No memorable score. No startling revelations or plot twists. No substantive commentary on any aspect of this world. Over all this felt like a middling story that revolved around a dead girl who was tied to the Russian mob and a British midwife who was rather unfortunately caught up in the circumstances. I think this was the sort of film that I could watch passively on television, “edited to fit the time alloted,” and not feel as if I’d missed anything.

3/5. Next I get to see if the final Pirates of the Caribbean film is as weird as everybody’s been saying.
