Overview

First-time writer/director Scott Burns spins this suspenseful yarn about a nuclear technician who has a curious encounter with a notoriously violent Russian gangster (Nikolaj Lie Kaas). The year is 1995, and Timofey (Paddy Considine) is a nuclear power-plant worker in post-Soviet Russia. After being exposed to dangerous levels of radiation while working to avert a disaster, Timofey discovers that the authorities have deliberately misled him about the severity of his exposure, and that he will likely die in just a few days. Determined to provide for his wife (Radha Mitchell) and young son before he succumbs to the effects of radiation, Timofey absconds with a small amount of weapons grade plutonium, straps the vial to his body, and makes his way to Moscow in hopes of making a quick and profitable sale in the criminal underground. This is the "new Russia," where everything has its price, and Timofey is determined to secure his family's future even if he himself has none. Oscar Issac and Jason Flemyng co-star in a film produced by Section Eight and Beacon Pictures for HBO Films, and distributed by Picturehouse.

    More entertaining than expected

    This probably ranks four stars, actually. I thought this would be some dreary, moralistic story. Instead, it was an entertaining movie. Things do look fairly hopeless for the protagonist, but everyone is tied by their fates. The plant administrators are bad men but aren't totally evil and it doesn't become some Snidely Whiplash melodrama. The wife pulls-through, the bad guys get it in the end, and there are actually some laughs in this sad tale.
