Review: Eastern Promises

Another movie by David Cronenberg, and usually you have an equal hit-miss chance. But lately his movies seem less controversial and less off-putting (probably because he doesn’t write the screenplay anymore), though he still doesn’t delve too deeply into his characters, letting them brood in silence instead.
Starring Viggo Mortensen (again, see History of Violence) and Naomi Watts means the acting part is well taken care of. The story part though, is somewhat slow and simple. That works well for the budget, but certainly is a few minus points for this movie. Overall though, it’s just average.7+.
