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 »

This movie is a joke, just not funny one
9 April 2017 | by marshmelloukaSee all my reviews

Collection of all the movie clichés, plagiarized plot line, mixed with Russian imperialism (somehow claiming former Soviet republics in any stupid way possible). Not good enough to be a joke or a trash...total waste of resources.Do not waste your time on it, not to say - god save you from going to cinema and paying money for this crap.
