Looking forward to Zaschitniki then? No? Don’t know what the hell we’re on about?

Well, Zaschitniki (or The Guardians in English) is a Russian-made superhero-noir film that bears more than a passing resemblance to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The story sees the members of a Soviet-era supersoldier programme coming out of hiding and reuniting to face an old enemy. And, well, take a look for yourselves:

Looks interesting, huh? I mean, some of the effects aren’t exactly Hollywood, but do you really need to spend a quarter of a billion dollars getting everything just so? And let’s face it, there’s long been a gap in the market for superhero movies that aren’t America-centric. Although I still reckon that bear guy is a sop to Vladimir Putin, y’know, being the Russian Bear and going around with his shirt off.

Why does my tea taste like someone’s poured a lethal dose of Polonium-210 in it?

The Guardians is scheduled for release on 23 February 2017.

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
