Can anyone tell me what Denzel says to the Russian mobster (at 33:11), after shoving the corkscrew through his lower jaw up to his mouth, and after counting "1/1000"?

He says something which I suspect is Russian, and probably something sarcastic/cynical (or maybe just something like "bye sucker", but I'm guessing).

  • Hi, Welcome to MTV SE. Screenshot would be much more helpful on this, but meanwhile try reading the script here

The "understand" is a callback to what the same villain said to Robert when they picked up Alina of the street on her walk with Robert earlier in the movie.

"Don't be shy. Make the call. Understand?"

  • Looks like we were both right: it was spoken in Russian, but it does translate as "understand".
