Поредният ергенски запой / Hangover Part II - How can you surpass the highest-grossing R-rated comedy ever? Watching Hangover 2, the answer comes easily to mind - by pushing the envelope even harder! And what a better way to do that than to throw your characters amid the madness of Bangkok - the city where everything is possible, the city which will devour you if you don't pay enough attention... This is the foundation of the second part of the biggest bachelor party ever and this is where the movie strengths lie. Though more or less exactly the same premise - a gathering gone terribly wrong, memory irrevocably lost, someone missing... - the element of absurdity is driven to its utmost limits and the result is pure comedy gold. Hangover 2, as its predecessor, is a film that justifies repetitive viewings, with a pleiades of extremely ridiculous scenes and priceless quotable lines, whose discussion will fill your private party time for many countless hours. Among the three protagonists (Justin Bartha is once again sidelined), Ed Helms (he has a demon inside himself!) and Zach Galifianakis get the best bits, with the latter's stupid childish behaviour making you cry with laughter. And finally, a cigarette smoking monkey, dressed in a Rolling Stones denim jacket and selling drugs is a way cooler than a boring tiger. Fact! (Alexandra) ****
Очите на войната / Triage (Limited) - It's not strange that this little known Colin Farrell movie directly hit the DVD shells in UK and USA. Despite that the title comes with a message concerning atrocities of war conflicts and price of friendship, it has nothing new to offer. Worst of all is, however, the way the film makers present the story - you'll need a glass of Irish whiskey to swallow its too frequent unpleasant moments. Rough around the edges and poorly acted, Triage will be liked only by fans of war-themed movies. (ProFilms) **
