We love a good psycho-thriller gun movie: Victory Day has the added value of being a revenge fantasy. Writer/director/star Sean Ramsay plays photojournalist Sam Cassels, who works in the Soviet Union and sees bad stuff happen. He comes home, gets a job at a magazine, and stumbles on a chance to get one of his old nonbuddies, a Soviet bigwig bad guy. Abetted by a blonde sex slave (gotta have one of those!), he makes some large, bad decisions. International intrigue, making out, and gunplay ensue. Yessss! It sounds like Eastern Promises meets Blow-Up. Oh, and Ramsay was a photojournalist in the Soviet Union for ten years.
