Storyline

Moscow, 2004, and wealthy entrepreneur Kuptsov drills deep beneath the city, trying to reach a huge diamond vein. Aware that his ruthless drilling will destroy the city and its denizens, it's a result he's willing to accept for untold additional wealth. Fortunately, his equipment lacks enough power. He needs the Nano-catalyst (developed years ago) to fuel his machinery, but its current whereabouts is unknown. Meanwhile, in another part of the city, college boy Dima dreams of owning a car and dating gorgeous co-ed Nastya. His wealthy friend Max has a Mercedes Benz and is flirting with Nastya, which frustrates Dima. On his birthday, Dima finally gets a car (from his parents) - a grungy, antiquated Volga of which he is privately ashamed; but, unbeknownst to anyone, the car - the recipient of "failed" Nano-catalysis - is capable of much more, and turns Dima into an unidentified crusader of justice known as Black Lightning. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A flying Volga makes young student a super hero
1 February 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

It sounds ridiculous, and it is, of course, but this Russian movie is some kind of block buster like material about a superhero, or rather a car with the power if flying. An old Volga, found long lost under ground makes the whole difference. This is pure entertainment Hollywood style. Rusdia has become a very large and important market for Hollywood movies, and thus is a Paramount movie.

Young student Dima, which is infatuated with Mercedes cars. On his birthday he gets a really old Volga, with the message that even president Putin has one. It looks like any other old Volga Gaz-21. A strange nano catalyst is hidden inside the car, something which changes Dima's life. His starts off as a flowers delivery guy, but not for long.With some bad guys after him, he discover the car's flying abilities coincidentally.

In a way this film is much more charming than its American Hollywood counterparts. The film I was reminded most about when watching this, was about a flying VW Beetle, and I wouldn't call that a classic (Chatty Chitty Bang Bang). Filmed in Moscow, which is also nice presented, I enjoyed his, though it's not any kind if film art. More in the genre of Iron man and Superman. And very Hollywood clichéd this is, it's still more for the Russian market, than for the rest of the world.
