01:56Child 44 - Trailerposted on April 14, 2015A sumptuous period thriller encompassing themes of power, love, betrayal and murder, “Child 44” is novelist Tom Rob Smith’s fictionalized version of the grisly case that was met with resounding critical and popular acclaim upon publication in 1998. Real-life serial killer Andrei Chikatilo, also known as “The Butcher of Rostov,” was convicted of murdering and mutilating 52 women and children in Soviet Russia in the early 1950s.
I think the movie's worth seeing; you just have to haggle with what sounds as silly Russian accents. Great acting, memorable action sequences, grand production, good story build-up. Great team and screen presence by Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace. The whole movie gives the audience a feel how difficult it was to live freely in USSR during the Communist era.
