Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)Definitely good fun, and mostly unimpugnable in that category. Chris… More Definitely good fun, and mostly unimpugnable in that category. Chris Pratt is likeable, as is the rest of the core group, and they create a motley mix of rapscallions that believably join forces to save the day, etc. etc. It's funny, the film looks luxurious and colorful in so many ways, the chief characters get enough development to make their arcs interesting and fulfilling. That said, Guardians never truly rises to excellence, and possibly not even "very good" like some other Marvel Cinematic Universe flicks, maintaining a steady plateau of expected beats that are nonetheless quite entertaining. I anticipated a strong soundtrack coming in, but it still was unexpectedly good in parts. The film bore resemblance to Pirates of the Caribbean on more than one occasion - but that's mostly a good thing, in my opinion, especially in a space opera setting. Fun stuff.
