Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) - Movie Review
Directed by: James Gunn
Country: USA

Movie Review: Marvel strikes again with “Guardians of the Galaxy”, a sci-fi adventure filled of substantial special effects, space battles, and sharp humor, which was a crucial factor for its success. This wasn’t the first time that writer/director James Gunn directs a super-hero story – “Super” in 2010 wasn’t so successful as this one. The film exhibits a fantastic characterization and uses a nostalgic rock soundtrack, played through audiocassette by our hero, Peter Quill, who will join forces with the combative Gamora, the jocular raccoon, Rocket, and the latter’s loyal tree-like humanoid friend, Groot. Together, they will try to defeat the creepy Ronan and Gamora’s sister, Nebula, whose objective is to first destroy Xandar, the home world of the Nova Corps, threatening the entire universe. With an orb, containing a coveted Infinity Stone, jumping from hand to hand, we are thrown to a stunning entertainment created from an eventful plot. Even if not so smart as it wanted to be, the action-packed “Guardians of the Galaxy” reunites the right elements to please not only the fans of the comics, but also wider, general audiences. Some weirdness presented in several moments was very welcome to escape the monotony of other competitors of the genre. The cast did a great job and includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, John C. Reilly, Michael Rooker, David Bautista, Benicio del Toro and Glenn Close, among many others. Most of them will certainly be present in the sequel already announced for 2017.
