As noted in the DVD commentaries, the Russian producers understood they couldn't match a Hollywood budget, yet wanted to develop their own set of superheroes, so I credit them a lot for the effort. A mix of novel - Khan (the teleporter) has a cool special effect (somewhat like the Necromancers in "Riddick") - and derivative (Marvel also has a werebear Soviet hero, Ursa Major). Pacing, acting, plot all merit their criticisms, but it's no worse than the Night Watch series. Despite this movie being panned, a sequel's been greenlit.

Bad acting, bad voice dubbing, lots of CGI. Ideas from other movies: X Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, & Mortal Combat. Eh, they gave it a try.
