Russia's Answer To The X-Men

Guardians, or Zaschitniki, is the closest a Russian film has come to capturing the scope and production quality of the Marvel Universe. In Guardians, a band of men and women from different corners of the Soviet Union volunteer for (or are forced into) a DNA-augmenting program that gives them special powers. They're secretive existence, so far as I can tell from the footage, is upended when they're tasked with fighting a supernatural force in modern day.

Oooo, I like Bear Man. The movie looks pretty good, actually, if clearly derivative of various Marvel movies.

Really looking forward to this! Let's hope it gets distribution outside of Russia :)

Lots of buzz about this one and when do you hear that about any Russian films?
