Eastern Promises

Eastern Promises ★★★½

A brutal, intense and slow burn crime gangster drama, that’s more performance driven with explosive actions high on graphic violence. The fight sequence with the Turks in the bathhouse was one of the best. While the entire cast is good, Viggo Mortensen steals the show with his brooding and menacing performance. Though it feels a bit low key, its a compelling enough mafia drama.

"I can't become king if someone else already sits on the throne."
