Di­rec­tor Gela Bablu­ani re­makes his sadis­tic crime thriller for the English lan­guage mar­ket here, but sadly some of the magic that made the first so grip­ping is miss­ing. The ac­tion and drama cen­tres on a young man who is in such a des­per­ate need of money he gets mixed up in an un­der­world gam­bling game of Rus­sian roulette. And in these games the win­ner gets rich and the losers get dead. None of the big-name ac­tors re­ally have much to do in this and while the death scenes are cer­tainly thrilling, every­thing in be­tween tends to drag.
