Netflix film about Ukraine caused scandal: Kyiv bombed, Ukraine like Somalia

Fantastic thriller “Death Zone” blew up Ukrainian social networks: only talk about a new Hollywood action!

Everyone is excited: from the townsfolk to the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada. What irritated the Ukrainian public so much? 

Oil was added to the fire by the Minister of Culture and Information Policy Alexander Tkachenko, who cheerfully reported about this premiere in Telegram the day before. He was proud of the fact that the first full-length film with Ukrainian dubbing and subtitles was released on the largest American streaming service Netflix! Tkachenko was delighted that “even the events of the film take place in our country.” This caused popular outrage. More precisely, the way Ukraine and Ukrainians are shown there.  

“We are waiting for the replenishment of the Netflix library with Ukrainian,” Tkachenko finished the post bravo. “And new filming in Ukraine. Especially tapes about Ukraine in Ukraine. And now we are watching the new product.” 

Looked. The premiere was shocking! The victory, as usual, turned into a disaster.

Just 15 years later (acting in 2036), Ukraine, according to the authors, is waiting for the following, judging by the titles: “In Eastern A bloody war is going on in Europe, US troops are acting as peacekeepers in this zone of lawlessness and brutality.” Judging by the presented map, Ukraine is divided into three parts: Ukrainian, pro-Russian (the territory of the Reds) and in the center – DMZ – a demilitarized zone. 

The most unpleasant thing is that the situation in the war-torn country is controlled not even by the Americans, but by a certain Viktor Koval – a “field commander”, the leader of the Reds, who are supported by Russia. Koval –   “thunderstorm of the Balkans”, that is, the authors suggest that this type can capture not only the whole of Ukraine, but also spread to the Balkans. 

This is not surprising, because he blew up Kyiv with a “dirty” (smuggled) atomic bomb, which led to the death of “25 thousand people”. To cope with the terrible Koval, the Pentagon for the first time uses “gump” (“goofballs”) robot soldiers.  

Not a weak preamble?  

Cunningly dangerous Ukraine 

It is further reported that Ukraine under Leonid Kravchuk only pretended to surrender nuclear weapons, but in fact “froze” a third. And this entire nuclear Perimeter is quietly waiting in the wings.  

This is reminiscent of a recent joke from Kvartal 95, where the actor Yuri Veliky, portraying Vladimir Zelensky, claimed: “Kravchuk did not give up all the nuclear weapons. Some are kept by Parubiy.” The Kremlin has lost control of the rambunctious Koval, and if this dreadful guy gets his hands on the Ukrainian nuclear button, the whole world will suffer. But, first of all, the States, since these missiles are aimed strictly at American cities. 

A woman is in command 

Such is the disposition. The plot didn't disappoint either. Lieutenant Harp, flying a drone, violated the order and opened fire, saving 38 American soldiers and killing two. He calls it “collateral damage”. For inhumane arithmetic (he didn’t wait for the two to be saved), he was sent to hell – to Ukraine, so that he could sniff gunpowder – Harp was not at the front, he was only “drone”.

His new commander, Captain Leo, is secret “biorobot of the fourth generation”, indistinguishable from humans. Harp thinks outside the box, Leo too: he easily kills people if necessary, does not hesitate (the English title of the film Outside the Wire plays on the phrase Think outside the box – think outside the box).

The first task of the Harp-Leo couple is to take the cholera vaccine to the Kyiv hospital. On the way there, an armored car with American servicemen was shot down. We see that not far from the burning car, the local population, among whom there are dark-skinned (Afro-Ukrainian?), are rapidly sorting out humanitarian aid. We hear Ukrainian speech: “Give me some milk. Take everything!”. There are destroyed five-story buildings all around, where there is not a single whole window pane (just like in “Atlantis” by Valentin Vasyanovyach, where the near future is also shown, but Ukraine won that war).    

Representatives of the Resistance are located nearby – this is a motley crowd of bearded men with machine guns in sports sweatshirts and bandanas. All Ukrainian  fighters are extremely hostile to the Americans. 

When the latter lined up interspersed with combat robots, one of the resisters threw a stone at the robot’s head, for which he was instantly shot dead, despite the order not to open fire. In general, they don't stand on ceremony…

Everyone is against America

We will not reveal the intrigue of this peculiar film, but it is entertaining in modeling the future, revealing in what capacity, perhaps, the Americans imagine us. Even if through artistic images. At the same time, Ukraine is increasingly appearing in Western cinema in a geopolitical context: in the same “Argument” (2020) by Christopher Nolan, there were showdowns between different saboteurs at the Kyiv Opera, where the audience was sedated with gas.Here the main geopolitical idea is that Ukraine is a buffer between Russia and the United States. The main threat on our territory is still Soviet nuclear weapons. However, the Ukrainians do not have combat robots, only the Americans and the Reds have them. 

Interestingly, the head of the Resistance is a young woman – the authors obviously heard something about the fact that matriarchy is not alien to our country. And what's more, they roughly imagine what Kiev women look like: DNIPROINVEST bank employees are blondes in pink suits.   

Three times in the tape, the head of the Resistance voices an extremely anti-American stance, as if expressing the general opinion of Ukrainians . The first time she says to Harp, “The locals weren't orphaned by the civil war – your bombs destroyed their homes.” Second time: “This war is beneficial to the USA. Russia wants to return its former territory. The USA wants to destabilize Russia, they need a conflict in our country. Only the Resistance wants peace.” 

And for the third time, so that there is no doubt: “The Reds and the Resistance have a common goal – a nuclear strike on the USA.” 

In the picture, even some American robots are set against the States,  mazo, considering who the creators are.   

The main thing in this rather mediocre film (tape rating on IMDb 5.4) is anti-war pathos, that people cannot be “companion   damage” of military operations. That one should not confuse the war on the monitor and in real life. But at the same time, it says about the physiognomy of one formidable combat robot: “This is the American face of endless war.” other feuds with robots. This theme also runs like a red thread here. The humiliation of a robot by a person is indicated by the biting word “roboracism”. And robot captain Leo, who was expressively played by Anthony Mackie (“Avengers: Infinity War”), declares to his partner: “I'm not an idiot, otherwise I would be a man.”
