Guardians of the Galaxy Review
Yes, Virginia, you will believe in talking, gun-toting raccoons.
Having I never read—but being somewhat familiar with—the Guardians of the Galaxy comic books, my initial interest was minimal when the movie announcement first came down. That changed with the release of the online trailers, and my curiosity perked up considerably. The humour, the music, the action, all beckoned. So with high hopes I ventured to the theater…
… and the movie more than lived up to the promise of the trailers.
It is a fun, cheeky, dynamic romp, that fully realises the breadth and scope of the Marvel universe. The plot is tight and fast-paced, with some stellar action scenes and great CGI, plus the main characters are the sorriest, angriest, craziest bunch of misfits that you can’t help but find irresistible and irrepressible.
It’s a must-see summer movie.
And if you’re going to stay and watch the final scene after the credits, read the last disclaimer line, you’ll get a chuckle.
