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.

It all started with a crystal found in a soil sample from the moon. It turned out that the crystal was capable of altering the chemical composition of substances. We created a device that increased the energy of fuel a million-fold. We called it the nanocatalyst.

Grigoriy Dobrygin was my motive for renting this film. I loved him so much in How I Ended This Summer that I wanted to see how he got his start. Well here it is: a complete rip-off of Spider-Man's plot, Batman's brooding, and every cheap young-love romance you've ever seen come out of Hollywood. Loaded with product placement and completely lacking in riveting characters. Funny...the acting was really decent, which is surprising given the empty script they had to work with. Probably preferred by people who aren't like me. If you hate arty films or deep characters or decent, interesting plot lines, and if well-executed special effects and a cheesy villain that looks suspiciously like Vladimir Putin are enough for you, enjoy.
