Alternate Versions

When the film was originally released in Germany, the dubbing was highly criticized for adding lowbrow humor. To rectify this, distributor Capelight ordered a new dubbing (which reflected the original tone of the movie) and the film was re-released (with both dubbings) on Blu-ray/DVD. See more »

The great Russian fault
6 March 2017 | by blackbatlerSee all my reviews

As a Russian I'm really offended by this film. Firstly it doesn't have any originality. Russia is showed here very bad. Only one joke about "borsh" and bear-guy is not Rissia. Also characters don't have any background and motivation. Main enemy too. And if a can forgive this things, bad work of sound-operator and terrible assamblaje are absolutely unforgivable. As a result, horrible script, horribe actor's playing, pointles dialogs. It's even not a parody.. It's even not a superhero movie.. Only one good thing is a song in the beginning.
