Weird Movie Watch: Zashchitniki
There are a fuckload of superhero movies these days. So many that they’ve settled into a steady rhythm of diminishing returns. The bigger and more mainstream superhero movies become, the more flawed most of them become. The good ones feel like the same story over and over, and the bad ones are just plain terrible. But with so many superhero flicks, we also get weird experiments like Zashchitniki (Guardians to us English-speakers). It looks like all of the superhero stuff we love filtered through Russian culture and dubbed to hell. In other words, it looks awesome.
Yes, that’s a bear-man with a Gatling gun. Thanks for that, Russia.
