Eastern Promises (R)

Movie: 3 stars out of 4

Disc: 2 1/2 stars out of 4

This second collaboration between director David Cronenberg and leading man Viggo Mortensen is a lot like their first ("A History of Violence"). Again playing a mobster with a questionable past, Mortensen stars as Nikolai, the limo driver/wet nurse for the son of a big boss in the Russian Mafia. When the kingpin and his son become involved in the death of an underage prostitute, Yuri has to not only clean up their mess, but must also prevent a nosey nurse (Naomi Watts) from blowing the whistle. Sadly, the disc offers only two brief featurettes and no optional commentary, outtakes or deleted scenes.

Technical specifications: aspect ratio: Widescreen anamorphic (1.85:1); audio: English and French Dolby Digital 5.1; subtitles: English, French and Spanish.

Special features include:

Two behind-the-scenes featurettes
