    Yeah that was a very good adventure movie. DiCaprio's work in that film is what convinced me that he a good serious actor.

    Some good mercenary action movies from the 70s if you are interested. The Wild Geese and Dogs of War with Christopher Walken stand out..

    Wow, so he'd been violently attacked not long before too. I guess that was a message which he did not receive...

    According to the OVD-Info police monitoring website, one of Borodin’s acquaintances wrote that the journalist called him in search of a lawyer two days before his accident, saying “people in camouflage and masks” were standing outside of his apartment.

    Another acquaintance cited by OVD-Info recounted Borodin being hospitalized on April 5 after being attacked outside his home.

    Regional media reported in October 2017 that Borodin was attacked over the head with a steel pipe.

    Harlem Désir, the OSCE’s media freedom representative, called on Russian authorities “for a swift and thorough investigation” of Borodin’s death.

    The journalist had been investigating the deaths of Russian private military contractors in a U.S.-led coalition airstrike in Syria on Feb. 7 and their funerals in March.

    I thought this was going to be a thread about a reporter who found dirt on the composer who inspired Nazis.

    lol No, wrong Wager... It is a funny name for them. It was the call sign of their leader, an ex-Spetsnaz officer, when he fought in Chechnya. Became the name of the company when he founded it, Wagner Group.
