Guardians Of The Galaxy
Guardians of the Galaxy is a bit of a departure for Marvel, in the cinematic sense. They’ve been pumping out high octain action flicks with some of their biggest franchises, but keeping them all related and in the same universe. Dark, brooding and always living on the edge of believability.
But now we have Guardians of the Galaxy, a film that lives so far out of the current Marvel universe, you’d struggle to believe they were related. It’s a light hearted Space Western, more Firefly than Star Wars, with a talking raccoon and a human tree. It’s a quest to save the universe and it’s being lead by a human misfit who doesn’t know he has a hero lurking in him wanting to get out. It’s cliched and cheesey at times, but it’s also the perfect night out at the movies. You’ll laugh, you’ll cringe, you’ll be on the edge of your seats, but best of all, you’ll want to watch it all over again just to see the band of misfits come together and save the day in that good old fashioned way.
The storyline is simple; evil dude wants to destroy the universe, our hero to be, stumbles on the device that the evil dude requires and along the way accumulates a band of misfits to help him in a cause he never realised he was about to embark on. The visuals are amazing, the action is brilliant and the film is essentially perfect.
