Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Director Aleksei Balabanov's matter-of-fact depiction of his protagonist's exploits conveys the blunt harshness of post-Cold War Russia."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"If anything, this slickly done gangster thriller should be taken as a political warning by the West that Russia is a wounded animal and still dangerous..."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A cold-looking crime movie that is certainly interesting, even if it's also grim and humorless."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
