No, It's Not a Black Dynamite Sequel

No, it's not a new blaxploitation movie. Nor is it about the questionably named DC Comics character. Black Lightning is the new Russian sci-fi/action film produced by Timur Bekmambetov (director of Nightwatch, Daywatch, and Wanted), directed by Alexandr Voitinsky. It's about a boy whose father buys him his first car, only for him to discover that the car can fly and do all kinds of cool shit. Of course, there's a bad guy who wants it, and he and his car go on to fight evil (evil in this case is in the form of a menacing-looking dude with a flying Mercedes that shoots missiles).

It's got a Spider-Man-meets-Shia-and-Bumblebee kind of vibe to it, with the kind of over-the-top effects and action that is reminiscent of several recent Russian releases. I doubt it's going to have the geek cachet that Daywatch did (a very good, if rather flawed and obtuse film), and it's clearly more PG-13 than the likes of Wanted. But it's got potential as a good, fun, effects-driven picture. Assuming you're not one of those toolboxes who blanches at subtitles. Check out the trailer:
