Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this sequel to the 1997 comedy The Brat (a major hit in its native Russia), Chechen war veteran-turned-gangster Danila (Sergei Bodrov, Jr.) meets up with a few of his Army buddies while appearing on a TV chat show about the conflict. One of Danila's pals mentions that his brother, who has moved to the United States and is enjoying a career as a hockey player, is having a cash-flow problem, and wants to know if Danila can help him. Danila promises to see what he can do, but when he gets back to his friend, Danila discovers he's been killed under mysterious circumstances. Convinced something fishy is going on, Danila and his brother Victor (Victor Sukhorukov) head to Chicago to find his friend's brother in hopes of finding out the truth; however, they quickly make a mess of things.
