Solid movie, but could of been much better if they didn't cut it short. The movie has it's big twist and direction swing towards the end, and never elaborates. It's not that it leaves you hanging on the edge of your seat, it's that they developed so many things that seem to be perfectly suitable arcs to continue with. The best way I can describe it is it's as if the Godfather ended after the restaurant scene. Sure that closes ties, and could be the ending, but there was plenty of story to continue with and all of it very good and not forced. Eastern Promises could of been longer and been just as interesting if not more so in another hour or so as the first 1:45.
i saw this too, it was pretty good but i see what you're saying about it going on...my wife really enjoyed the nude Viggo Mortensen fight
