Excellent effects and action sequence hampered by some utterly atrocious dialog. The barely capable actors are done no service by a torturous script - to be fair, most of them wouldn't have been able to do anything with a better one (though Callies is way more ingratiating here than she ever was on The Walking Dead). Some destruction fun to be had, but nothing that can't wait for home.
Incredibly flat, undeniably rote sci-fi flick. It's not as aggressively bad as say, Skyline (which was at least jaw-dropping in its ineptitude), but it's utterly lifeless; lacking anything resembling tension or even a discernible style. No one on- or off-screen seems to care; so why should we?
Big Big fun adventure. Unlike a lot of modern sci-fi, with it's glossy and sterile environs, Guardians has a lived-in feel, with a lot of personality. It's also packed with rollicking action, giddy comedy, and even a little bit of heart too.
Cut-Rate Alien knock-off, if the crew never got off LV-426 and it starred Ferris Bueller's father and Francine from American Dad. It's sort of amazing it can crib fully wholesale from such a seminal film and still exist. And it does it so badly to boot!
