So Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a fun movie. If you want a fun afternoon or night out, go a see it, you’ll laugh and be amazed. I love Groot and Rocket Raccoon the two CGI characters shown in their own movie poster below.
There are many who are over the top about this movie, I think because it could have been awful and isn’t. There is something about the movie that makes me hold back from saying Fantastic, but it is very, very good. There may be other things playing in, but the pace was too frenetic the cutting too staccato for me to fully enjoy. Also a lot of characters seemed to intimate some link to a deeper story that we didn’t get to see. An introductory movie set in a deep universe like Marvel’s may be prone to this and my ‘author’s bump’ maybe too sensitive to these things but these ‘issues’ kept me from getting as deeply engrossed as I did in Edge of Tomorrow and some of the other Marvel films.
But its a fun movie, go and root for Groot, Rocket and their pets.
