Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, the voice of Bradley Cooper, the voice of Vin Diesel, as well as Bautista himself, John C Reilly and Glenn Close, amazing cast in this movie. This is a bit of a gamble for Marvel because these characters are as well known as Captain America Iron, Man, The Incredible Hulk, a lot of people haven’t heard of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
They’re a ragtag group of outlaws that come together because they all have one thing in common. They do not like this dude named Ronan. And he wants something that’s gonna help him control the galaxy they have it so they fight and stuff. Now we’ve seen a premise like this quite often in a Marvel movie or in a superhero movie or any movie like this of any kind. There is some kind of object plot device MacGuffin, something everyone wants it so everyone’s gonna go after it and explosions and all that stuff. But we have never seen it in a movie like this. Guardians of the Galaxy has everything wanted it to be. It is absolutely awesome. This is by far Marvel’s funniest movie to date.
This movie is just as much of a comedy as it is an action-adventure movie. The comedy in fact even over-weighs it to the point where we would actually just call this movie a comedy. It is truly hilarious and the jokes are very clever and unexpected because it takes those genre clichés, those big moments you expect, countdowns and evil stares and big face offs and moments where you’re supposed to be like white-knuckling it and then it just does something hilarious totally out of the blue.
Guardians of the Galaxy is one of the most entertaining films of the year. It is endlessly enjoyable to watch, the special effects are terrific, the 3D is also very, very good and actually worth seeing and the characters so amazing.
