5.0 out of 5 stars Good Russian-Asian action movie Oct. 27 2012
By Movie Mike - Published on Amazon.com

It is a revenge plot. Brother revenging the death of his brother but it is not a simple plot. In the process of telling a revenge story the political level, the underworld level, the police enforcement level and the personal levels all get involved. What I found interesting is the movie is produced and acted by a majority of Russians from Asian descent. I think the movie was cast in the Eastern part of Russia. Now their sentiment is a bit different from the sentiment of the European and American point of view so you have to make space in your mindset for something a little different. The storyline and the characters develop in a successful manner. All the characters stay in character so the story feels believable. I gave it a 5 to balance out the other low star reviews. I do not understand why others rated lower than 3. Maybe such reviewers were using American cinema movie standards for screen writing and plot development. It is well done but in the magnitude of order for Russian produced films. Watch it you will get a good action movie out of the viewing.

3.0 out of 5 stars SAFE DRIVING IN EXTREME CONDITIONS Aug. 18 2012
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This film was made in the Republic of Kazakhstan which accounts for the oriental looking actors and Russian script on everything. If you want to know what the Russian documents say, you need to set up the film with English subtitles. The dubbing was horrible and included foul language not in the subtitles. In one scene a man pushes a woman out of his way onto a bed. He says, "Shut you face" but the subtitles read "relax" giving the scene a slightly comedic "What's Up Tiger Lily" effect.

Arsen (Aitzhanov Berik) is a former special agent working as a body guard. When his brother is killed, Arsen uses his skills to avenge his death as a vigilante. As he does, two elderly gentlemen seem to show up at random and want to recruit him for ???? With the law hunting him, and kills adding up, the higher ups in the business world have hired Vinnie Jones to kill Arsen, because that was the biggest named actor Kazakhstan could afford and only for the last half of the film.

The movie did have a twist I didn't see coming, perhaps due to the translation issues. One of the certificates in the dossier of Arsen is "Safe Driving in Extreme Conditions." Eat you heart out Jason Bourne!

PARENTAL GUIDE: F-bomb. No sex, no nudity. 2 1/2 stars.

I feel like the director and the actors owe me my time spent watching this trash back. Do NOT waste your time on this garbage.
4.0 out of 5 stars Very good action movie... Nov. 3 2012

This is a very good action movie. It is with Russian sub-titles, but very well done. I wasn't expecting the action to be so good, but was pleasantly surprised by the Jason Stratham type action. Highly recommended.
2.0 out of 5 stars So-so Action Movie (And Vinnie Jones Is Just an Extended Cameo) Aug. 29 2012
By Tsuyoshi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
At first sight "The Liquidator" looks like a throwback to '70s revenge action with a Jason Bourne-like hero. But, with a hero whose own deeds and motives are called into question when the law starts hunting him down, the film (produced in Kazakhstan) is obviously trying to be something more than a vigilante thriller. Unfortunately, the unique concept is ruined by the bland and cliché storytelling, as well as the poorly-executed action sequences.

Arsen (Aitzhanov Berik) is a bodyguard whose journalist brother gets killed while investigating corruption among the social higher-ups. Arsen soon embarks on a vendetta against the people he thinks are responsible for his brother's untimely death.

The story itself is serviceable, but direction is amateurish. The story goes on and on, just following the events in the least exciting way, with no notion of rhythm or narrative flow. Except the final fifteen minutes the director does not even attempt to build up tension of action or drama. In short, the film is terribly boring.

Vinnie Jones ("Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels") appears as an unnamed killer, but his screen time is about ten minutes or less, and his role is a just cameo, good but nothing special. The film's star is Aitzhanov Berik, who delivers a solid performance as the hero determined to avenge the murder of his brother. He deserves a better script and direction. In short, "The Liquidator" has decent production values and acting, but it could be much better with more effective storytelling.
