First, I was born, educated and have lived my entire life in Moscow. I want everyone reading this to know that Russians are not living in the 19th century now. Everyone uses modern gadgets, unlike Katya's home in Myrniy!!! Another big stereotype used was showing everybody drinking vodka, however, the cafe scenes showed the men drinking something else without any food. If Russians drink vodka, there are always copious amounts of food on the table. The director needed to utilize Google and find out about the real Russian brands of vodka consumed in Russia. In addition, in Siberia not everyone speaks English. Plus, the ramshackle country home at which Pyotr's body was found had a door with large gaps between boards... this is Siberia!!!!!!!!!!! And the Federal agents (always professional in any country) would have never been identifiable in the hotel lobby.
And if the director did not have enough money for consultations with actual Russians, he can always use Wikipedia, Google, the nearest library, etc. ... it still free! It is such a shame to see Keanu Reeves in such a mediocre film.
