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.

Granted, the movie does contain ideas and motives from other superhero movies, yet the Russian cast has managed to present the story in whole new light.
One thing that makes this movie more interesting is the fact that the action takes place at a different location - Russia (Moscow), not the well-known USA (Manhattan). Other things that differs from the majority of the created movies nowadays are the ways that characters express their emotions and the believes / principles they have.
On the negative side there are moments with poor computer graphic effects and impossible physics which has had a negative influence on my vote.
Overall this movie managed to keep me watching till the end. I can't say the same for other movies that seem to have higher ratings.
