Despite it being a Marvel production, I was very sceptical of Guardians of the Galaxy – I didn’t believe that it would be as charming as Iron Man, as inspiring as Captain America, or as powerful as Thor.
I’m glad I was proven wrong, for it was enchanting. Chris Pratt was excellent as Peter Quill/Star-Lord. I find Rocket (Bradley Cooper) as the most entertaining, even though his words may sometimes be hard to catch.
And it’s really difficult to identify Vin Diesel’s contribution as Groot – but believe me, he was Groot.
The rest of the casts also executed their parts very well such as Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Dave Bautista (Drax), Lee Pace (Ronan), Glenn Close (Nova Prime Irani Rael), Benicio del Toro (The Collector), etc. As usual, do watch out for Stan Lee’s cameo appearance.
And it’s impressive how they can make songs from the 70s and 80s such as Come and Get Your Love, Hooked on a Feeling, I Want You Back, etc, fit so well in the movie.
A must watch for the whole family.
