Director: Anton Megerdichev
Original Title: Метро
Main Cast: Метро
As Moscow’s legendary chandeliered underground fills with water, thousands of terrified commuters flee through flooded tunnels in a disaster movie that topped Russia’s box office and can rival any serious Hollywood fare of the same genre.
Depicting what might happen if Moscow’s Stalin-era underground system, – which last year carried more than two billion passengers – sprung a leak from the Moscow River flowing above it, Metro is a brilliantly shot nail-biter with big action sequences and genuine flair.

The Bottom Line:
Metro is worth seeing for the incredible cinematography alone. However, also in there you’ll find nail-biting tension and huge action set-pieces to rival anything coming out of Holllywood. A disaster pic of epic scale. It also stars Svetlana Khodchenkova, gorgeous Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy actress who was also just seen in The Wolverine.
