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

Quotes

Romantseva: 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.

Wow! I was pleasantly surprised!
14 January 2012 | by ucaiiiSee all my reviews

I fumbled by this title several times while looking for something to watch using my streaming movie service. Finally, I decided to at least give it a try and WOW, was I surprised.

I knew that there were Russian films out there but I didn't know that they were THIS good. This is an AWESOME sci-fi movie. It had action, romance (Ekaterina Vilkova was absolutely STUNNING)and excitement.

The special effects were great and added to the excitement. I really love movies like this and am really disappointed that I didn't watch it earlier. I will be looking for more Russian Sci-fi in the future!

I highly recommend this film. You WILL love it!
