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."
January 4, 2015
In proper "who gives a toss?" B-movie tradition, Guardians of the Galaxy takes us into the silly section of the Marvel Universe.
September 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.
September 30, 2014
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.
September 30, 2014
These meager pleasures are swallowed up in all the frantic action and overblown CG sequences.
September 5, 2014
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.
August 7, 2014
Hovering between irony and sincere enthusiasm, the film is above all a triumph of tone.
August 2, 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.
August 1, 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.
August 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.
August 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.
August 1, 2014
Finally, some jokey superheroes.
August 1, 2014
"Guardians of the Galaxy" has wit, energy and zaniness to spare. It will pop your corn and leave you hungry for more.
August 1, 2014
Guardians of the Galaxy is an open fire hydrant of a summer movie: more fun than should be allowed in such hot weather.
July 31, 2014
Though based on a comics series launched in 1969, "Guardians" comes on with a hip, absurdist humor that feels thoroughly modern.
July 31, 2014
The characters are great and the movie is often very funny.
July 31, 2014
As directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy never takes itself seriously and it's often a visual and musical treat. The Runaways' Cherry Bomb and David Bowie's Moonage Daydream? Yes, please.
July 31, 2014
The motley crew's repartee makes for comedy that's surprisingly consistent, yet freewheeling and sharp enough to pinball from Kevin Bacon to Jackson Pollock and back.
July 31, 2014
The people who made this movie must have had a swell time in the process, and it's nice to see a summer epic that takes itself so unseriously.
July 31, 2014
If you're old enough to remember when sci-fi and comic books were fun, "Guardians of the Galaxy" will be your new favorite movie. If you're not, it will set a standard for everything you see.
