Surprising entertaining. Ballerina turned into a martial arts expert when her daughter was kidnapped and husband killed.

Sofya Skya, the Russian 5ft 10in ballet dancer actress, made the film possible and unique. You don't want to mess with a nearly 6ft tall person who can kick behind her head or spin pirouettes so fast that you will not see when those powerful long legs will connect with your body parts.

OMG. I almost groaned when I saw the cheesy cover/title, but this was the rare surprise.

Russian made, but can go toe to toe with the better American action films quite easily, and actually has an edge thanks to its unique story and fabulous locations.

It looks like they spent big money on this, but never promoted it here. I thought I'd give it a shot and discard after 10-20 minutes, but it was really quite interesting and entertaining.

Man on the phone: I am only taking back what you stole from Russia.
Michael: I stole nothing.
Man: You have raped our natural resources, sucking our oil fields dry, and taking the very best of our women for your own wife, Blyad.

Daughter Nina: Don't you like cookies?
Mom Maya: No, I love cookies. But...but if I eat as many as you do, I won't be allowed to dance in the theater.
Nina: What else do you have to do to be a dancer?
Maya: You have to practice every day, eat little, and work a lot.
Nina: Why did you pick ballet if you can't eat cookies?

-: Jesus, it took you long enough. Just tell me the bitch is dead.
-: The bitch is alive, xxyyzz. ...And she's coming for you.
