Bread and Circuses
Full trailer for Russian superhero blockbuster Black Lightning, produced by Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov. Lots of action and special effects are trying to conceal thin and predictable plot, not so funny jokes. A breakthrough in Russian big budget commercial cinema? Should Hollywood start envying? I don't think so. After Interceptor opened a week ago with loud box office failure and overwhelming poisonous reviews, combined with sweeping negative response from the viewers, no one should be confident about this one, although I am pretty sure Black Lightning will do much better in both areas.
I've updated the trailer with better quality video and added subtitles.
