“Guardians Of The Galaxy” Movie Review
(For summarized review, please visit: http://www.wljack.com/2014/07/movie-review-guardians-of-galaxy.html)
Here comes another amazing adventure from Marvel, the studio that brought you Iron Man, Captain America and The Avengers. “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where the wacky adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing away a mysterious orb sought by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions to threaten the entire universe.
During the process of evading Ronan, Quill has met up with a quartet of misfits – Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer.
Will Ronan able to hunt down Quill?
What will happen between Quill and the four newly met friends?
Will the mysterious orb fall onto wrong hands?
Let’s take a trip to the galaxy at your nearest cinema soon!
Being the first movie for "Guardians of The Galaxy", I think the director James Gunn has done a great job in introducing this new Marvel universe to the audience. He has tackled the movie very well in many aspects.
From the aspect of storyline, it is not that complex and the audiences can definitely keep track with the flow without any difficulty. Considering it’s the first movie for this new franchise, it is a wise step as it can allow the audiences to feel more attached to the plot easily.
The pacing is good and every moment in the movie is either filled with humors or actions which will keep you entertained. There are a lot of comedic scenes in the movie which consist of well-written lines that are funny and brilliantly stupid. These have brought laughter to the audiences.
It is also action-packed with well-choreographed sequences that are very memorable. I personally love the scene whereby the heroes are escaping from the cell. It’s really spectacular!
For the character development, they started off with the introduction of Peter Quill (played by Chris Pratt) and revolved a lot about him throughout the show. Thus, by the end of the movie, you will feel that you know this character very well. However, it doesn’t mean that the movie doesn’t focus on the other characters as well. In fact, some characters even shine better than Peter Quill in my opinion. I personally think Rocket Raccoon totally steals the spotlight due to his great personality, his wisdom and yeah, who doesn’t like a talking raccoon armed with hi-tech guns?!
Other than that, Groot, Gamora and Drax are favorable too. Groot’s limited vocabulary can be quite humorous. Gamora on the other hand is really hot and pretty. Drax who is presumed to be a cruel, revenge-driven destroyer turned out to be very silly at times plus provided some of the funniest moment in the show.
Most importantly, the director has allocated adequate amount of time for us to see how the characters develop and interact with each other. The chemistry between them is really good. In overall, the characters themselves plus the bond between them are what make you love them when the movie ends.
Credits should also be given to the actors and actresses for their splendid performances. Chris Pratt is able to deliver the wackiness of Peter Quill and we totally love his acting. Zoe Saldana is also a good choice for the enigmatic Gamora. And yeah..she’s really hot! (This is the first time I fell in love with a green-skinned female character on screen) Otherwise, Bradley Cooper’s amazing voice-over is what makes Rocket Raccoon such a cool hero in the show. Vin Diesel’s voice-over is fun too although his dialogue is so limited. (It’s funny to imagine him voicing over Groot with such a limited amount of words). Bautista plays a great job in his action scenes too.
Besides all these, the movie also has great lineups of soundtracks. It features a few classical songs which are very catchy and well-suited to the film.
The downside of the film is the villains. In comparison with other Marvel franchise, the villains in this film are rather blunt and not that memorable. Despite there are moments which hint that the main villain of the show for being very strong, he turned out to be relatively weak and doesn’t put up much of a fight for the heroes.
What I like about the movie:
- A great kickstart for a new Marvel franchise.
- Simple storyline for audience to keep track.
- Nice pacing packed with comedic and action sequences.
- Well-balanced character development and great bonds between the heroes.
- Great casting for the show.
- Hilarious lines.
- Catchy soundtracks.
What I dislike about the movie:
- Weaker and less memorable villain character.
This movie deserves a 9.0/10.0!
This movie deserves a 9.0/10.0!
“This is a great start for the new Franchise! It’s a fun sci-fi ride in Marvel universe!” –WLJack
“It’s a very funny and enjoyable movie! Love Chris Pratt and the Groot very much!” – Fellow reviewer, Jose Yap
Highly recommended to those who love Marvel movies and those who love “Star Wars” –alike movies!
If you are expecting it to be as deep and dark like The Dark Knight Trilogy or as sentimental as Xmen:Days of Future Past, then you are most likely going to be disappointed. However, if you go in the cinema with the expectation of enjoying a comedy movie/ enjoying old-time hero movies, then you will enjoy it as much as I do!
Million thanks to Nuffnang for the opportunity to attend the #NNPremiereScreening of the movie! #GuardiansOfTheGalaxy
