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.
