What Netflix does to the movie business, Apple is doing to the music business, and Amazon is doing to book publishing. Amazon is actually selling more Kindle copies of books than newspaper copies. Facebook is little more than a way to suck up people's personal information, and sell it to advertisers Google Mirror, plus new facial popularity technology, will make that much much easier. Facebook has created over 80 million fake accounts. The hope is that the author, for example, will see their account already set up, and decide to use that. For that reason, the author says that he will never post about Facebook.

**A war hero who turned a police officer struggles with his departmental feud.** It is a strange title. In the narration as well it does not properly reveals, more like an approximate count of something. It is a Russian story, I mean the Russian characters and the locations. It begins after the world war two, in Moscow, a top police officer caught between the departmental politics and a case. After the his investigation ended without a result, the sacked officer gets a lifeline to begin again life in another town. But the trouble follows him when he started to investigate the children's deaths. The result of the case brings the end to the tale with a tiny small twist. The actors were decent, not very impressive. Especially I understand since it was internationally produced, they preferred English language, but I would have liked it in the original language to get best appeal. It was too long film, the first half was very boring. Because it was most unrelated to what comes in the later part of the film. When the narration shifts its base out of the Moscow, that's where it really gets very interesting. So after first 60 minutes, the real story begins. This where the actors got better. Noomi Rapace and Tom Hardy, both were like the kicked off with full of energy. So the second half of the film makes it watchable. Directed by a 'Easy Money' filmmaker who also brought in his Swedish actors to play the smaller roles. It was not good as I expected, but ended well. I don't think it is worth a watch, but who knows what you like. So I neither recommend nor reject it. But it was an average film to me. _5/10_
