  • Very fun and entertaining movie

    Gexas2014-01-11

    I think it's important to mention that it is probably the first "made in Lithuania" movie worth seeing for viewers outside Lithuania borders. As Lithuanian I would write whole 10 for it, but being realistic and thinking about international audience I will vote for something between 7 or 8. Now about movie. Without spoiling anything: it's a criminal, little bit dark humor comedy about few English guys who decided to rob some gangsters and run to Malaysia. Everything went according to the plan except one thing- them flight was redirected to god forgotten eastern European country with unpronounceable name. This movie took place in Lithuania and reflects myth and ideas about it, but in my opinion those myth would fit perfectly for any eastern European country and any viewer from there will find something alike in them homeland. Because most of the audience will be from Lithuania there are some jokes that only Lithuanians will understand or understand it differently from the rest, but I think it shouldn't cause much problem for anyone. I should mention that this movie is mostly in English, but also you can hear some Lithuanian language, some very "broken" English and even few words in Russian. Don't worry because everything is subbed. This kind of thing is done because in Lithuania older generation hardly speak English and it was the only way to show it. And also it's very fun to watch this miss-communications between main characters and natives. Maybe it will be harder for ones who do not understand Lithuanian language, but still it should be pretty entertaining because subs will let you catch the idea. By the whole this movie is really entertaining and fun to watch. Maybe little bit to much nudity and curse words, but let's not forget that it is S rated move. Also some things shown are little to harsh and show eastern Europe from not the bright side, but this movie is not a documentary so it shouldn't taken seriously, it should be watched with little irony and wish to laugh at yourself (last part dedicated for eastern European viewers). To sum up everything- if you like Guy Ritchie movies, if you liked movies like "Snatched", "Seven Psychopaths" or movie "Kiss kiss kiss bang bang" you will probably like this one too.

  • It's not terrible

    trashcan-e2014-12-20

    It's not terrible, but that's also not saying much. The score also isn't very indicative of this film's quality, but on such a prominent site as IMDb - it is no surprise. 5 stars for the effort of trying to be something it clearly isn't - a Guy Ritchie style gangster flick. Is it funny ? Yeah, at times - it is, but most of the laughs are accompanied by a cringe. Is it original ? Hardly. You always get a feeling you have seen all this before - which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but in this case it feels like Re-Directed is awkwardly trying to mimic its bigger brothers from UK. The dramatic arguments in some of the scenes feel incredibly forced - clear over-acting steals the emphasis from what should be really important in the scene. That said, the pacing is okay, there's enough action for this kind of movie and it doesn't stall too much. Also, I found some scenes genuinely comical, but some were a bit too cliché-ridden. What deserves some applause though, is that the director didn't attempt to paint a realistic picture of Lithuania, but took the satirical, "Looney Tunes" approach instead. It's one of the things I actually liked about this film - it's very light-hearted and doesn't take itself seriously, which scores it some very much needed points. This is something you watch once, then remember how many times you had watched Snatch/Lock Stock, and then watch them again - because they are worth it.

  • I honestly don't understand the high rating

    joksa_yu20012014-12-16

    This was one of the worst high rated movies I've ever seen. Made me so mad, I gave it rating 1, just because it was so overrated. I mean 8,7 from 12.000 users? Have you actually seen the movie before you rated it? I read somewhere this is the first Lithuanian movie to be accepted internationally. Well, if it means this is the first Lithuanian movie I've ever seen, then it's probably right. It's a Guy Ritchie meets Emir Kusturica. The acting is very thin, though. It's full of Eastern Europe clichés, but it's so overt, it's not even funny. I knew what to expect in each of the following dialogues 10 minutes into the movie. I fast forwarded through certain parts. In conclusion, if you want to see a bad ass, fast-cut, violent Brit movie, go see the Snatch. If you want to see an Eastern European movie, see the Underground. If you want to see a mix of the two, and a bad one if I might add, see this.

  • Promising start, but then......Oh dear

    steve-mason662015-01-02

    This movie had quite a promising start, but unfortunately the writers ran out of ideas after less than an hour. The story is nothing original - bad guys had something taken from them, bad guys try to get it back, how original is that, it's been done a hundred times before (and a lot better) The story centres around 4 idiots who rob some guys with the plan to fly off to Malaysia, unfortunately because of the volcanic eruption in Iceland, their plane is diverted to Lithuania, and here's my first issue, The plane was diverted, yet it wasn't headed towards the volcano, which is north, Lithuania is east, as is Malaysia. Neither of those countries are anywhere near Iceland, so why couldn't it continue to Malaysia? And why Lithuania? The story kicks off at a pace with the feel of a Guy Ritchie movie, but slows quite quickly. The lads end up in Lithuania trying to get back to Blighty, being chased by all types of gangsters. The acting is very poor and unnatural, and instead of sounding like tough London gangsters they sound like posh boys trying to play the hard man, and it just didn't work for me. Vinny Jones was, well, Vinny Jones, and gave the sort of performance you come to expect from him, not exceptional, not bad, just...Vinny. The story runs out of steam, and the majority of the film has the lads running from place to place being chased, and that's pretty much the rest of the movie. For me it was a kind of nothing movie, easily forgettable. It tried very hard to be a Lock Stock kind of movie and failed. Don't be fooled by the 10 star ratings given by people from Lithuania, they are totally false and rated highly just because it was filmed in their country. Give this a miss, unless you have 90 minutes or so to kill.

  • Once again disappointed.

    nathansafetech2014-12-18

    I got this movie one week ago and the rating was 8.9, today it is already 8.5, who knows how it will be 3 weeks from now. I seems as if people watch the trailer and and base their opinions on it. If this happened to be true Prometheus would have been the best movie of all times, well, it ain't. Bad comedy, they have tried to set the tone by using music on every scene which got obvious and boring quite fast. They also tried to use "The Hangover" for some part of the script and it was a nightmare. In three weeks or less if people actually watch this movie through the end it could be a solid 5.7.
