      Guardians of the Galaxy Reviews

      A cheerful blockbuster in which Star Wars meets Ziggy Stardust...

      Full Review | Aug 29, 2022

      For much of its 122 minutes, Gunn's grab-bag of quirky characters, genre ribbing, and incongruent '70s pop tunes goes over like gangbusters. The trouble is, it's only irreverent to a point.

      If Guardians of the Galaxy is an origin story, it is also a satire of the origin story, one that emphasizes the power of the "We" over that of the "Chosen One."

      In proper "who gives a toss?" B-movie tradition, Guardians of the Galaxy takes us into the silly section of the Marvel Universe.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Jan 4, 2015

      Guardians bounces with the energy of pure invention.

      Full Review | Sep 30, 2014

      Blessed with a loose, anarchic B-picture soul that encourages you to enjoy yourself even when you're not quite sure what's going on, the scruffy Guardians is irreverent in a way that can bring the first Star Wars to mind.

      The lightly derisive, live-action-cartoon tone robs the movie of any majesty, even of the comic-book type, and the many violent deaths of their suitable gravity.

      These meager pleasures are swallowed up in all the frantic action and overblown CG sequences.

      Chris Pratt, overflowing with charisma, plays the leader of the pack of misfits, and his blissed-out space cowboy (with a love for seventies music) is so full of good will that he buoys the film and its requisite whizbang special effects.

      Fans... will delight in the wisecracks offered by Rocket (Rocky Raccoon) or the profundities of Groot.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Aug 8, 2014

      Hovering between irony and sincere enthusiasm, the film is above all a triumph of tone.

      Outre, cheerful, yes... but wake me up when the Doctor Strange movie is ready.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Aug 4, 2014

      Director and co-writer James Gunn brings a giddiness and a wondrous, endless sense of why-the-hell-not? possibility that's reminiscent of Star Wars.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Aug 2, 2014

      Pratt is their prime asset for turning the comedy up to 11. With him playing Star-Lord, you never question what Quill brings to the team: a sparkling, cracked esprit de corps.

      Full Review | Original Score: B- | Aug 1, 2014

      It may be a mess, but it's an extremely good-natured mess, full of humor and warmth. More surprising still, the very elements that seemed most likely to ruin the movie-the tree-man, the talking raccoon-account for much of its improbable charm.

      Guardians succeeds when it proves the Marvel formula is malleable; it fails when it discovers that formula is not yet malleable enough.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Aug 1, 2014

      Gunn appears to remember the high of certain kinds of moviegoing, where when the credits are over, all you want to do is get back in line and enjoy the whole thing again.

      At first I thought, 'This movie isn't as clever as it thinks it is.' But after a while, I decided maybe it was after all.

      If you want a superior successor to Red Dwarf, Blake's 7, Star Wars and, yes, Scooby Doo then look no further. There are worse things.

      Finally, some jokey superheroes.
