Russian Commandos Battle Somali Pirates In The New Russian Thriller, 22 MINUTES
22 Minutes…that’s approximately the time it took for commandos from the Marshal Shaposhnikov to end a deadly siege with Somali pirates aboard a Moscow University Russian tanker in the Gulf of Aden back in the summer of 2010. The incident has since been adapted for the screen as a contained action thriller by writer Igor Porublev and director Vasily Serikov, and bears some impressive qualities that make the film look like a very interesting sell.
A new large-scale action from the creators of ShadowBoxing trilogy dwells on heroic liberation of the Russian tanker seized by Somali pirates.
Newcomer jarhead Sanya Ezhov finds himself in a tanker commandeered by pirates gang. He needs to survive and to help his friends during the most complicated circumstances.
The film is based on real events that took place on May 5th, 2010, when the Marines BOD “Marshal Shaposhnikov” under a bomb threat have released a Russian tanker “Moscow University” taken in the Gulf of Aden by pirates. Blue berets team had only 22 minutes to complete the operation with no right for error.
