Viggo's Nikolai named top 10 screen mobster

Viggo Mortensen in Eastern PromisesMichael Ordoña of the San Francisco Chronicle named his picks for The top 10 best screen mobsters yesterday. Making his appearance as #6 on the list was Nikolai Luzhin, Viggo Mortensen's character in Eastern Promises:

If you had never seen Mortensen before this film, you'd think he was that guy, that the filmmakers had just pulled some Russian dude out of a high-end London nightclub. Equal parts preening macho narcissist and cold-blooded hatchet man, he tops even Borat for best naked fight.

Our only question: why wasn't he ranked #1? :)
