Guardians of the Galaxy - Movie Review

Verdict - "Does Justice to the Term 'Summer Movie Blockbuster'"

One imposing component about Guardians of the Galaxy is that by the end of the movie you will fall in love with these non-human characters which was feasibly unforseeable.

In an abridged way, the main plot of the film surrounds around a MacGuffin that formulates a combat between a group of outlaws led by Star Lord and a group of mercenaries led by the peril menacer Ronan The Accuser.

As I stated earlier, the movie was a total surprise when it comes to the characters and I'm utterly pleased about the screenplay of the movie, screenwriters James Gunn and Nicole Perlman carried out the movie perfectly by setting up the characters, prolonging the storyline and most prominently making us enthuse and enlive each and every aspect of the movie.

Also the foremost strength of the movie was it's humour and it actually succeeded each and every single time. I'l explain you why, the amusement cog is not only about characters randomly cracking jokes, it's also about the humour which was filled with silence and pop out with a single expression. Guardians delivers at that level, and I'm actually contented by it.

And the best thing is that the movie didn't take itself seriously, which grasps my attention to director James Gunn's, who did an astounding job by amending the movie well with a light-hearted approach and I appreciate Marvel Studios and Kevin Fiege for actually letting the movie create an unique and fresh impression in people's mind.

The movie had few snags here and there, and this has been my major complaint of all the Marvel movies (Avengers excluded), the antihero facet is always been a letdown. In Guardians, the build up and the presentation of Ronan was remarkable, but did he pose as an amazing character? I would say no! Also the story is a bit generic and I understand the reason why, being a primary onset of the franchise, the storyline did what it needs to do.

It was overall flawless with the performances in the movie. Chris Pratt portrayal was composed and placid, been given a major role in the franchise, he stood up to all the expectations and resided his character in a safe place. I was a bit sceptical about Dave Bautista's performance and he filled life into his character and was very impressive for a wrestler turned actor.

Zoe Saldana's character was a bit underwhelming and I felt she was a bit underutilised and was wasted in many ways. Her appalling love tier with Peter Quill tells you her importance in the movie.

Rocket and Groot voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel were the most stimulating characters in the movie. Their chemistry, humour and the slice of the action were the most gratifying parts of the movie, as I didn't mind of them being a computer generated animals.

Also the CGI in the movie was lively and wholesome. The wide range of vibrant colors used in the movie was a definitely an eye-candy and there's nothing amazing to watch in the 3D format. Better prefer 2D!

Nevertheless, Guardians of the Galaxy is a surprising gift box filled with all the necessary elements of action, emotion and humour which perfectly sums up the term "Summer Movie Blockbuster". It sets up the storyline flawlessly for the Marvel cinematic universe and builds it's own place high above on the best Marvel movies chart.

My Rating - 3.75/5
Grade - B+ (Highly Entertaining)
