The Peter Weir directorial venture opens with Poland being invaded by the Soviet Union. The film is a character-driven narrative moving around the struggle of a Polish Army officer who is captured in a Siberian Gulag labor camp.

Ever look at these avenger fight scenes in a city where the whole city is in ruins thanks to these superheroes fighting bad men? The idea of Kickass is somewhat the same.
