From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team-the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits-Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand-with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

The film ties the infinity stones in very nicely, keeping the MCU together and still being unique to itself. I loved the different planets we get to explore, we finally adventure somewhere which isn’t earth. The attention to detail was great, it offered us interesting things to look at, as well as keeping us focused on the story and not getting us confused. James Gunn is a true comic nerd and has given us everything we need for an opening film, he never one comprised the lore or continuity for the purpose of entertainment.
James Gunn has made a fun, entertaining, Sci-Fi thrilling adventure with the unlikeliest of characters. The story from the get-go is imaginative and doesn’t follow a simple arc. What makes it so good is that the characters are all funny and serious in unique ways. What was most clever about this film was how they managed to get these completely different characters to meet and team up, their own agendas are different, but their overall goal is the same.
Great use of colours, bright and vibrant. It gave me an 80s feel in the 21st century. Each planet they explored was different and looked spectacular, detailing on everything was good, it made it hard to spot anything wrong with it. Costume is one of my favourite things about this film, it is influenced by our cultures across the globe, but still feels alien. The detailing in clothes and skin etc gives this film something extra that most other films don’t have.
To be honest, every single one of the main 5 was brilliant, they casted them perfectly, each actor bounces off one another. They even have great character interaction with other smaller characters. They made me laugh, cry and took me on a rollercoaster of a journey. You can tell the director and cast took their time to figure out what was best. Lee Pace did well to Ronan, being evil in a comedic movie is hard, but Lee makes sure his presence is known.
