When a masked vigilante's killing spree throws a city into chaos, a renegade detective and his rookie partner are the only ones who can stop it.

This was a nice surprise! Major Grom: Plague Doctor is based on a Russian comic book series about St. Petersburg detective Igor Grom and his pursuit of the violent vigilante Plague Doctor. When I watched it I didn't realize it was based on a comic book, but I was going to describe it as Batman (if Batman was a regular guy with a side of Sherlock Holmes) vs Lex Luther (he actually is an eccentric, genius, rich guy) movie...ha!
It is in Russian but dubbed in English. There's comedy, action, drama, a little romance, and the characters are likable. Everything a superhero movie needs.
Even though it smacks of DC characters, it has enough originality and some twists you don't see coming. Definitely entertaining and worth watching.

There is an after-credit scene. Creepy as hell, but awesome.
