"Stephen Dorff (Blade, FeardotCom) in another horrible movie stars as Mike Varga, an American FBI agent who goes under covers...not under the covers...undercover with the Russian mafia's "Marlon Brando", Darius played by Bob Hoskins (Unleashed, Roger Rabbit) in the stupidest way imaginable. Dorff gains Hoskins' trust. David O'Hara (The District, Made) whos Irish is playing Freko here or whatever his name was who is Russian and who is Darius' right hand man and who doesnt trust or think Dorff is who he really is. The lovely Laura Fraser (A Knight's Tale, Vanilla Sky) is alright here (she's done better) plays Katya, Darius' Daughter who Dorff falls in love with during the process. Ian Hart (Enemy of the State, Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone) who is wasted plays Rob who is Dorff's friend within the FBI. The action sequences are weak, the acting is even weaker and the suspense and surprises arent that great although I did think Dorff actually killed Hart. Speaking of Dorff and Hart I think this is the first time in a long time they've worked with one another. Both of them starred way back in Backbeat where Ian Hart played John Lennon and Stephen Dorff played Stu Sutcliffe. Although the Russian women in this movie are hot hot hot! This movie isnt. Though if you wanna see Bob Hoskins kill some guy with a poolstick this is the ticket for you otherwise steer away. Also starring Zita Gorog (8MM 2, Underworld movies)"
Gotta like Dorff

"Stephen Dorff plays an undercover FBI agent who gets sucked into the Russian Mafia by gaining the trust of the big daddy mob boss (played by Hoskins). I have to tell you I had a hard time getting the image of Hoskins chasing Roger Rabbit out of my mind for most of the movie. I just couldn't separate him from that character and the Russian mob guy (horrible accent included). Yes, there were a few unbelievable scenes (even cheesy at times).
But I love Stephen Dorff as an actor so I was able to overlook some of the shortcomings of this film. My advice is, if you're not a big Stephen Dorff fan, then you probably won't like this movie very much, because it offers little else at times. If you ARE a Stephen Dorff fan, then you will probably really enjoy this movie, because as a previous viewer said (it shows a lot of sides to Dorff) and his character is much more multidimensional compared to some of his other films.
I bought it and am keeping it."
