About : The Guardians

Take a bowlful of The Avengers, add a teaspoon of the Fantastic Four and sprinkle some X-Men superpowers for taste. And voila! You have Guardians — The Superheroes.

Originality certainly isn’t this Russian superhero movie’s superpower. Ripped from the Marvel recipe books and following in the footsteps of The Avengers movies, this one starts out with a quasi-Frankenstein mad scientist, August Kuratov (Stanislav Shirin), who genetically modifies human beings to give them superpowers. He transforms Arsus (Panpushnyy) into a werebear, gives Khan (Madiyev) super speed, changes Ler (Sisak) into the lord of the rocks and makes Kseniya (Lanina) invisible.


An affecting human drama of love, loss, and resilience unfolds against the backdrop of World War I. The women of the Paridier farm, under the deft hand of Hortense, the family’s matriarch (Nathalie Baye,) must grapple with the workload while the men, including two sons, are off at the front.


Having come across the trailer ‘Guardian’ on the Internet, initially I was fooled into thinking it was one for the Galaxy sequel (the action scenes looked impressive), but to my surprise it was an apparent Russian blockbuster, but an even bigger surprise is the rating. Yes, the script is rushed, and the story is basic, heck some will argue it’s a Russian ‘Galaxy’ but it’s not as bad as the score suggests, it’s a shame people have jumped on the bandwagon in helping the movie look worse than it is.
