Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Despite occasional disregard for the laws of physics, much of the imagery displayed onscreen is so realistic and thrill-inducing that sometimes even the plot becomes almost secondary during the more intensely visual sequences."
‑ Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter
"One of the most entertaining, fun, thrilling, heartfelt and beautiful summer blockbusters we've seen."
‑ Eric Eisenberg,
"A rocking space odyssey that gate crashes Marvel's cinematic stable and instantly becomes the life of the party"
‑ Cameron Williams, The Popcorn Junkie
"Mad, marvellous and all kinds of sci-fi magical, Guardians Of The Galaxy is Marvel's riskiest but most surprising success yet."
‑ Matt Risley, Total Film
"Whip-smart, pop-literate, self-aware humour saves the day (and the universe, come to think of it)."
‑ Steve Rose, Guardian
"Part George Lucas and part Chuck Jones, Guardians of the Galaxy has enough scrappy heart and smart humor to make it seem like the best possible kind of product, one where the talent of all involved makes it easy to enjoy their hustle."
‑ James Rocchi, TheWrap
"What's safe to say is that 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' is the most charming Marvel movie so far."
‑ Drew McWeeny, HitFix
"Colourful, tongue-in-cheek fun, purpose-built for grown-up lovers of kitsch '80s science-fiction."
‑ Dan Jolin, Empire Magazine
"A near-perfect mix of action, humour, imagination and wondrous special effects."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"It may well lack the full-blown A-list casting that defines other Marvel films, but the performances here are all pretty much spot on with the film bristling with energy and entertainment."
‑ Mark Adams, Screen International
"The cheeky comic tone keeps things buoyant - as does Chris Pratt's winning performance as the most blissfully spaced-out space crusader this side of Buckaroo Banzai."
‑ Scott Foundas, Variety
"James Gunn's vividly idiosyncratic spin on Marvel's renegade misfits, Guardians of the Galaxy, certainly represents a bracingly fizzy cinematic blast to the increasingly formulaic 'summer superhero' format."
‑ Simon Foster, Screen-Space
""A deviation from the Marvel formula, a gloriously, defiant weird movie that nevertheless proves to be an enormous crowd-pleaser.""
‑ Oliver Lyttelton, The Playlist
"A Marvel movie hasn't been this much fun to watch since the Avengers assembled."
‑ Amon Warmann, HeyUGuys
"A brand new summer family blockbuster this may be, but it plays by old, half-forgotten rules; trimming out the clutter and cross-referencing for snappy, streamlined, Saturday-cartoon fun."
‑ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
