Although well set and well acted, with an outstanding performance by Morgan Spector as the sinister Uncle Boris, "Russian Transport" suffers from flimsy construct and a tepid presentation of such dark material. Everything seems to be too ho-hum rather than suspenseful. The characters are too trite. Where this could have been a superior drama recreating the plight of immigrants pursuing the American dream, and the lenghs they would go to achieve it, it ultimately ends up like a weak cup of chai or a watered down bottle of vodka.
