Guardians Official Teaser TRAILER (2017) – Soviet Union Superheroes


“Zaschitniki,” also known as “The Defenders” or “The Guardians” in English, is a Russian neo-noir superhero film that offers a unique take on the superhero genre. Directed by Armenian director Sarik Andreasyan, the film was released in February 2017 and features a cast including Sebastien Sisak, Anton Pampuchniy, Sanzhar Madiev, Alina Lanina, Valeria Shkirando, and Stanislav Shirin.

The movie is set against the backdrop of the Cold War and tells the story of a group of Soviet superheroes created during this tense historical period. These superheroes were the product of a secret organization called “Patriot,” which undertook a daring experiment involving the alteration and augmentation of the DNA of four individuals. Their mission was clear: to defend the homeland from supernatural threats that posed a danger to the Soviet Union.

What makes “Zaschitniki” unique and intriguing is its focus on a diverse group of characters, each representing different nationalities of the vast Soviet Union. These characters’ superpowers are not just random abilities; they are intentionally designed to reflect the strengths and traditions of the various people and regions within the USSR. This aspect of the story is a nod to the cultural diversity and complexity of the Soviet Union, where numerous nationalities coexisted.

The film delves into the personal lives and struggles of these superheroes, who had long concealed their true identities as ordinary citizens. In times of hardship and when their homeland was under threat, they put aside their individual lives and came together to fulfill their duty as defenders of the USSR. This theme of unity and sacrifice for the greater good is a common element in superhero stories, and it is particularly poignant in the context of the Cold War and the Soviet Union.

“Zaschitniki” presents an intriguing blend of historical and political elements from the Cold War era with the fantastical world of superheroes. By infusing the story with a diverse cast and exploring the complexities of their characters and their powers, the film adds depth and cultural resonance to the traditional superhero narrative. This combination of superhuman abilities, patriotism, and Cold War intrigue offers a fresh perspective on the genre and a unique cinematic experience for viewers.
