Not all Guardians guard the galaxy, some are content to stay in Mother Russia and defend it from supernatural threats.

Russia's first superhero film, Guardians (aka Zaschitniki) is a lush, $20 million flick from Armenian director Sarik Andreasyan, that tells the story of four Soviet superheroes, created during the Cold War by a secret organization named Patriot.

The heroes' DNA was modified in order to grant them powers to protect the homeland from exotic roblems. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the quartet remained in hiding until they are called back into action by the return of "an evil from the past".

Guardians is due for release in Russia on February 23, 2017.

I would go see this just to check out how the Russians are copying Marvel.

Just my thought too Debra. So many similarities.

You just never see movies like this come out of Russia so that alone has my interest.
