  1. This is a meaty, well-crafted thriller that absorbs and disturbs you from first frame to last.
  2. Lounguine tells the story with more discipline than you'll find in his earlier films, painting a crowded portrait of a society moving toward a future it can neither confidently predict nor look forward to with anything but nervous anticipation.
  3. The flashback structure drains the story of momentum, but Mashkov and Uchaineshvili portray the reptilian glamour of cultured thugs with frightening intensity.
  4. For all its energy and fine acting, Tycoon has a frustrating lack of narrative coherence.
  5. 50
    Commendable as pop history but fairly opaque as drama.
  6. We become so distracted by the jigsaw effect that soon we are more concerned with the assemblage itself than with what it is about.
  7. The movie covers too much ground with too little detail. It manages to be convoluted, complicated, incomprehensible and maddeningly thin all at the same time.
