I saw very strong indications of a western flick in this one and maybe it could well fit into an eastern type of movie, a sort of Soviet counterpart for the popular English western films complete with horses, gunfights, robberies, prairies and etc., minus the Indians of course. This is an action drama genre but I found some lighthearted scenes that are quite comedic, especially in the earlier part of the film. I also appreciated the fact that some negative elements present in the usual action films like bloody brawls and sex scenes aren't featured here, which I'd say, was a relief.  Cinematography was impressive and Director N. Mikhalkov always delivers, and whatever genre it may be, he puts his own stamp and personal style to it. I've seen some of his films like Family Relations and Without Witnesses, which are not action genre types at all but viewers could deliberately sense a Mikhalkov feel and style that's observed in the majority of his scenes. A true film connoisseur indeed!

This film that's written and directed by Nikita Mikhalkov is visually appealing and with an engaging story. While his most popular movie of late would be Burnt by the Sun, he has directed countless memorable films through the years, from the '60s and beyond. The cinematography here is commendable and aside from the action scenes what is also noticeable in this film would be the bonds of friendship among the lead cast. Aside from the action drama genre, it also throws in comedic sequences. There are shots that seem quite random and viewers may end up quite confused but I guess everything all adds up to the film's unique flavor.  Worth checking out!
