Guardians of the Galaxy

Marvel's deep space superhero team get a film adaptation. Space adventurer, and self-proclaimed "legendary outlaw", Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) is the object of a bounty hunt after stealing an orb coveted by a treacherous villain. Pursued not only by bounty hunters but a green-skinned assassin as well as the space pirates he double-crossed to pull off the heist, Quill has to assemble a diverse alien team from among his pursuers in order to first survive, and then to prevent destruction on a planetary scale.

The resulting team of misfits is made up of Gamora (Zoe Saldana, Avatar), the powerful Drax (wrestler Dave Bautista); Rocket - a talking raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper); and Groot - a tree-creature (voiced by Vin Diesel) who also talks, but with a much more limited vocabulary. From the director of Slither and Super. Also features Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, John C. Reilly, and Djimon Hounson.

The cheeky comic tone keeps things buoyant - as does Chris Pratt's winning performance as the most blissfully spaced-out space crusader this side of Buckaroo Banzai.

Mad, marvellous and all kinds of sci-fi magical... Marvel’s riskiest but most surprising success yet.

Like a vast, family-sized festive crate of chocolates, all wrapped in the shiniest packaging, all exploding with sweetness and surprises.

Whip-smart, pop-literate, self-aware humour saves the day (and the universe, come to think of it).

It’s set far, far away, but Gunn keeps finding ways to keep it grounded in the known universe.

Despite occasional disregard for the laws of physics, much of the imagery displayed onscreen is so realistic and thrill-inducing that sometimes even the plot becomes almost secondary.

Colourful, tongue-in-cheek fun, purpose-built for grown-up lovers of kitsch ’80s science-fiction. But the Marvel formula is starting to feel, well, a little too formulaic.

Found this very entertaining. Has a lot of humour but action packed. Love it.

Not my sort of film however I can appreciate if you like sci-fi fantasy then you will enjoy this. Probably a good film to take younger boys who are super-hero fans.

This movie was awesome. I saw it two weeks in a row and enjoyed it both times. The soundtrack was amazing, making the movie really pop off the screen and hit a chord with the audience. The characters are well developed and well played and the story line was well thought out. I was incredibly impressed with the physical transformations a lot of the...

I have now seen Guardians of the Galaxy twice. And after watching it again, I've realized Guardians is more than spectacular action-packed Sci-Fi fun. It's a masterpiece and Marvel's most entertaining film since The Avengers. Chris Pratt is Peter Quill, a pilot from Earth who calls himself Star Lord. Peter steals a precious orb that belongs to the evil...

With big blockbusters going all serious on us since Nolan's Dark Night trilogy, the summer epic has lost its fun side. Guardians brings back the fun and more, making this a rip roaring, space adventure and the best yet (on par with Captain America: First Avenger) as Marvel's best film. Chris Pratt, your star has arrived.

I felt that a lot of the music were out of place in the scenes. The one that I did enjoy was "Come and get your love" by Redbone released, I think, back in the seventies what a great song. I thought the opening scene was original. Boy loses his mother to a disease, runs out of the hospital and disappears and in all that time he never once opened the...

Awesome popcorn flick. Story was pretty generic but the characters more than made up for it. Lots of laughs, AWESOME soundtrack, amazing CGI. Honestly, go see this in 3D, it is stunning. Just a good, fun night out at the movies. Go see it.

Lots of chuckles, great action and just the right amount of angst. More please.

This movie makes me sad. It makes me sad because I will never go on space adventures as awesome as this one with unique and lovable characters as awesome as those. The characters are, by far, the best part of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper and a whole host of other celebrities. The story is weak...

Entertaining and fun movie to watch with heaps of laughter, a great great sound track that take me back to the days of my pass time. Incredible cast especially with Chris Pratt that play the role of Peter Quill very well. Fantastic CGI with great special effect, a must watch movie for this winter. Marvel have done it again.....
