As Variety reports, Gazprom plans to start filming in , with the movie's Russian premiere scheduled for January 1, It's unclear when and how the Metro movie will debut internationally, but given the worldwide success of the Metro video games and novels, the movie will be released abroad.
Producer Valery Fedorovich described the film as "a dream project" for Gazprom Media, and affirmed the group's plan to "invest an unprecedented sum … in the production and promotion of this movie both in Russia and abroad. Metro author Dmitry Glukhovsky - who recently confirmed he's now writing the next chapter in the Metro games - said he was delighted to accept a film offer after dismissing them for over 10 years. And maybe I've already had my fill of such classic translated Russian novels. That's not to say it wasn't full of great parts.
It refers to and pays homage to Roadside Picnic , Stalkers and all. The ending made up for almost all the slow parts that felt like kind-of a slog. All told, I'd recommend this for fans of extremely well-developed post-apocalypse literature with a huge serving of what classic Russian literature is known for: shovels and ideas.

Welcome to the post apocalyptic world of Metro This novel conveys a claustrophobic atmosphere rarely felt. Everything in this underworld has a dreamy nightmarish quality about it. Consider: perpetual darkness except for signal fires and faint red emergency lighting at some stations. Well, the apocalypse has come and gone.
Somebody pushed the button, and only the Welcome to the post apocalyptic world of Metro Somebody pushed the button, and only the few who made it to the underground metro survived. Pockets of civilisation have formed at different stations, each with their own politics, religions and mythologies.
But there are things in the darkness, and there are things in the outside world that want in… Metro is a good idea, and a fine example of Sci-Fi Horror.
When it succeeds, it succeeds well. Unfortunately the reverse is also true: when it stumbles The plot skips around so much and takes off on random tangents so often that the whole thing at times feels like an exercise in frustration. Characters sometimes behave totally inexplicably. This seems to be at least partly attributable to translation issues but perhaps not limited to. Pros Now the good news.
Helmet "Spartan"(Metro 2033)
The story is filled with legends, half-truths and mythology, which will keep you on your toes. The mythical qualities reminded me of the The Gunslinger. Metro also has its fair share of genuinely spooky moments. And yes, it is actually pretty cool at times. You should at least give this a try.

Are you tired of stupid Young Adult books with stupid protagonists who are worried about who they should kiss rather than how to survive? Then this is for you. Real survival, real struggle, and a very elaborated setting take Metro to new levels of "things went wrong here". This book won't try to babysit you, so don't expect an easy read. View 1 comment. After reading Dmitry Glukhovsky's Metro , I felt compelled to offer a review. Frankly it is the best post-apocalyptic sci-fi I have ever read. While some things may get lost in translation, and it has a lot of typos, for me it did not detract from Artyom's epic struggle to reach Polis from the subway station of VDNKh and deliver the message that the dark ones are invading the station and the future of the entire metro population is at risk.
Set in the year , it depicts mankind's struggle After reading Dmitry Glukhovsky's Metro , I felt compelled to offer a review. Set in the year , it depicts mankind's struggle to survive in a Moscow subway system after nuclear bombs have destroyed the surface and contaminated the air, resulting in the birth of a multitude of mutant monsters, creating a life of constant fear and terror for the metro human pupulation.
There is a new species, more adapted to the radiation filled atmosphere, intent on replacing mankind. The story operates on a number of different levels, is tightly plotted, very descriptive and real. Lead protagonist Artyom is very believable as he analyzes the politics at work during his journey to try and save the future of mankind.
Glukhovsky criticizes Communism, institutionalized religion, cult worship, man's inabilty to get along with his neighbours, the futility of capitalism and the hopelessness of war I'm sure I'm missing a few. Inside the small states organized at different metro stations, the different control groups become a microcosm of our society, almost an allegory of how, as George Orwell put it, "absolute power corrupts absolutely.
This is a well-written, poignant and riveting work destined to become a timeless piece of literature that will be studied, admired and critiqued for many years to come. View all 5 comments.

That's a great way to start a journey, isn't it?
See a Problem?
For the rest of the book, Artyom simply wanders around the metro system tunnels and stations, trying to get to his goal. Every now and then, he goes on rambling, nearly incoherent philosophical rants about the nature of humanity--presented with incredibly juvenile thinking, as though it were written by a moody high-schooler. He meets people, then they leave after a few pages. And there doesn't seem to be any overall plot that ties it together, other than his loosely defined "quest.
He rambles on for ages about Artyom's travels through the metro, yet the motivation for his doing so seems sketchy, at best, until the last 10 pages. Characters are barely developed, and are then tossed aside, as soon as they have any personality. Locations have only minimal descriptions, likely assuming that you're already familiar with what the Russian subway system looks like--I shouldn't have to look things up on Google Images to understand what an author is talking about.
None of it manages to come together and form a cohesive world. It's a large jumble of fragmented good ideas; and it seems the author had to include every single one of his good ideas, without thinking about whether or not they were appropriate or useful to the narrative. I also have a tough time buying into the idea of everything on the surface mutating into super monsters within a single generation after nuclear war. At least give us a believable timeline. I could have probably given this 2-stars, expect for the fact that all of the good ideas the book presents are utterly wasted.
I've mentioned a few times how it quickly wraps up in about 10 pages, and that's the problem: the ideas in those 10 pages should have been everywhere else in the novel.
