Default Russian Mob Movie

Looking for the name of a Mafia movie (I believe that it was the Russian Mob). There were two undercover cops. One was trying to prove himself to the group, and the other one ended up getting caught taking pictures. He was taken to a warehouse and tied to a chair. The cop trying to prove himself was asked if he knew the man tied up. He denied any knowledge. He was then told to shoot the man. When he pulled the trigger the gun had no bullets, but he passed the test. The man who was tied to the chair was then brutely murdered by another mob member and then dismembered (the actual violence was not shown. Does nayone know the name of this movie?

Eastern Promises is a Russian mob movie (and a great one at that!) but the synopsis doesn't fit...

Eastern Promises is a great movie, but the initial description doesn't fit.

This help?

Russian Mafia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Though not as prominent as their Italian-American counterparts, Russian or FSU mobsters have appeared in a number of Hollywood movies usually as villains or antagonists. These include GoldenEye, "Rocknrolla", The Jackal, 25th Hour, The Boondock Saints, Ronin, Police Story 4: First Strike, Be Cool, Jungle 2 Jungle, Training Day, We Own the Night, Maximum Risk and Bad Boys II. Recently, the David Cronenberg film Eastern Promises dealt in a fictional manner with the Russian mob in London.

There have of course been many Russian movies on the subject, probably the most well-known of which is Brother (Брат) and Brother 2 (Брат 2). The anti-hero protagonist, Danila, is a Chechen war veteran who becomes a contract killer in St Petersburg. The film and its sequel became wildly popular amongst the Russian youth. Killer (1998) is a take on organized crime in Kazahkstan.
