Trivia

Vadim Mikhailov is the head of the Diggers of the Underground Planet in Moscow. He worked on the film The Saint (1997) with Val Kilmer by showing director, Phillip Noyce, the Moscow underground for a small scene in the movie. Mikhailov is quoted in Outside magazine in September of 1997 as saying, "After I took him down," Mikhailov says ruefully, "Phillip said he was going to help me make a movie about my life. I gave him some tapes and, well, I haven't heard from him since." Val Kilmer was in both movies. Moscow Zero also depicts exactly how Mikhailov described the underground in The Outside magazine, including the river. See more »

Quotes

Tolstoy: According to legend we live on the threshold of hell, but in reality it is much more than just legend. It is said that man defied God when out of vanity he longed to build temples so high they touched the heavens and reached the ages.

A trip to the underworld to find a friend ends in ?
10 March 2007 | by spfitzSee all my reviews

The plot in this movie is very thin, and there is not much acting. Val Kilmer--I don't know why he agreed to do this movie--plays a minor role as a gang leader. In short, the movie is tedious to watch.

One guy, who sort of resembles an archeology/religion professor, is exploring a subterranean area of Moscow, that has some history connected to railway construction and the Bolshevik revolution. A church tragedy in that history makes the exploration "spiritual" and spirits of a malevolent intent haunt the underground ruins. A friend of the professor decides to find his friend in the underground and hires a couple of Russian guides. The entire movie is based on this plot and contains much repeated footage of the underground, and some camera effects; much like those seen in "Day Watch", "Night Watch", etc.
