Movie Review

Maybe you think a big movie about would-be Marvel icons isn't worth your time. Because it is so out of touch with the Marvel Universe, this is the kind of movie that will appeal to those who don't mind superhero cheating and everyone will be eager to see what comes next. The characters are unforgettable, they work great as a team, the humor is great, with a lot of funny lines, the action is solid, and the film is great both as a comedy and as a space opera. There is more ambition and potential in this film than could have been achieved on the run, but it's nice to know you've seen a great origin story and there is still a lot to be done.

What sets Guardians of the Galaxy apart from the usual well-meaning, clean, and truly fun Marvel dishes is that this epic, epic adventure unfolds with a hectic, chaotic, cocky, and of course heartfelt intent, which is good to see. Of course, this is not a complete departure from the usual selfish losers - realizing that there is a deeper reason than selfish interests and joining forces to save the world/galaxy/universe conspiracy, but the Guardians of the Galaxy is distinguished by his willingness to have a huge amount of pleasure playing with these genre conventions, twisting them over the head in ways that daring and serious defenders of truth, justice and the world of Marvel superheroes usually disapprove. Guardians of the Galaxy is one of the best Marvel films, with Act 3, not the best, but mostly gorgeous and so incredibly addicting that it became one of the greatest hits of the decade. It's a beautiful, fun, and meaningful movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and remains one of the best.

John Pollock and Wai Ting reviewed the 10th Marvel Cinematic Universe Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). During the launch week of Endgames, as we learned more about Infinite Gems and Thanos, we discussed Marvel's first in-depth exploration of its universe. Guardians of the Galaxy is a Marvel comics action-adventure game aimed at older teenagers and adult fans of science fiction movies. The new Marvel Studios superhero movie "Guardians of the Galaxy" is -a intelligent, funny, and self-aware gum movie; just like the recent X-Men movies, it will have a retro playlist in the days to come. It shows that middle-aged youth and real youth are becoming more and more likely to become the main target audience.

One of Marvel's darkest superhero groups, Guardians of the Galaxy, has been adapted for a film written and directed by James Pratt, who previously directed the two films Scooby-Doo and Dawn of the Dead. The film features Chris Pratt as Peter "Star-Lord" Quill, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as Groot, and Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon. In many ways, The Guardians, directed and written by indie performer James Gunn, starring former clown club Chris Pratt and veteran blockbuster fantasy Zoe Saldana (tinted green in contrast to his blue Avatar) is a fun and relatively steep western area. Think of Firefly, released at 15, with lots of open Star Wars hints.

It's nice if there is a bit of hype (as there are often utopias in films), especially compared to the darkly colored, visually enticing worlds and spaces caused by Mr. Gunn and his team. Even though the film lacked CGI at times, the spatial set design is impressive. There are several ways to get lost in the film, and as Guardians knocks you off your feet, one crazy twist of the story after another, it also pulls you - and, for the most part, holds you back into another fully realized world. But if you look at these main actors, their admiration for each other, the incredibly uncomfortable soundtrack (laugh when some songs come out and stamp your feet at the same time), and some of the wildest imagery that can arise. For these planets and the setting - and I said the fucking raccoon is one of the main characters in the mainstream films in recent years, I must repeat it - it's the bliss of popcorn for a couple of hours and change.

It's big, vibrant, weird, and exciting, but above all, it's the most exciting thing you can look forward to in a movie theater this summer. For most viewers, this is not a movie where the characters are famous. Viewers are expected to enjoy silly films, hilarious quirks, and otherworldly colors - an ambiance that Thor and Green Lantern have reluctantly tried to achieve but failed.

Family and friendship play a bigger role than sarcastic 24/7 harshness, creating characters that viewers will want to see again. And then there are a couple of solid supporting actors who just have adorable whimsical science fiction/space opera costumes (this is, of course, also a Star Wars variant); Benicio del Toro in his only scene and Michael Rooker, the film's best villain as a mentor to the Star Lords, steal their scenes entirely. Like Spider-Man, Avengers, and X-Men, this movie is full of violence.

However, the ubiquitous struggle is something parents of young viewers will want to think about before bringing their kids into this PG-13-rated film. Few superhero films are suitable for young audiences; it had to be. It has a lot of violent and eerie scenes and scary characters, making it unsuitable for children under 13 and some older children.

Although it exists in the same universe as the Avengers and other heroes of Marvel, it is not a real superhero movie, but it takes place in a distant place in this universe. Star Wars, Voyager Flight, Mike Hodges Lightning Gordon, Back to the Future (2), Raiders of the Lost Ark, Total Recall, and some other space legends have donated their DNA, and the Guardian will not apologize for copying. At least, I must say that his role and an important part of the actor.

And wherever, he subverts expectations so constantly that it is difficult to accuse him of following any formula. For me, the movie gets better with multiple views, and indeed, after the third time I watched it, I raised the rating from 4 to 4.5, because it's a great blockbuster that should go down in history as one of the best, definitely one. of the best. its decade. However, four years later, it is still one of the best Marvel films.

That on a large scale, Marvel says something. And while all of these films had a more or less fleeting sense of humor, cocky wit, or winning manner of one-off jokes, none of them showed a hilarious, unbridled and gratifying contempt for ... the conventions of the genre as the latest flagship of Marvel filmmaking like James Gunns.
