Guardians of the Galaxy review

Guarding my Galaxy

Guarding my Galaxy

Special thanks to regular sponsors Flint TV, Ed Couzens-Lake, Leapfrog Training, Visualise and Flag Wizard

 

“Candy doesn’t have to have a point- that’s why it’s called candy”

The most famous moment in the trailer for this film was its interesting soundtrack- This resulted in a mix of bubblegum pop and the crash, bang and wallop of  a sci-fi blockbuster. In many respects the music is an apt metaphor for the film itself- there may not be a great deal of substance behind it but it is also energetic, infectious and in the moment provides the pleasure you want from a piece of entertainment.

If you were to sum up the plot of Guardians of the Galaxy it would sound pretty much the same as a lot of sci-fi films- a ragtag bunch of misfits grab a super powered glowy thing and various people of varying degrees of villainy are after it. There are laser guns, space ships and two alien women fighting each other. This being Marvel this ties in with a much bigger story.

What makes up for the lack of originality is the exuberance and the character of the film- this is the perfect palate cleanser for people who may have been overwhelmed by the more brooding and neurotic tone of recent superhero flicks.

The main heroes are the bumbling Peter Quill or “Starlord” (Chris Pratt), revenge driven yet curiously verbose warrior Drax (Former wrestler Dave Bautista),  assassin Gamora (Zoe Saldana), cyborg raccoon Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper, sadly not a cockney like in the Avengers cartoon) and giant tree thing with limited vocabulary Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel).

This motley crew engage in double crosses, banter and are all interesting and flawed. While my friend I was watching with pointing out the similarity to Star Wars in some respects the film seems aware of this and enjoys poking fun at the genre (sometimes arguably excessively so).

We have an interesting mix of villains- Yondu (Michael Rooker) does a brilliant Dennis Hopper impression, Benicio Del Toro is campy and weird as The Collector, Karen Gillan gets a couple of good scenes as Nebula (but is arguably a bit short changed and like her fellow former Dr Who cast member Christopher Eccleston in Thor 2 seems to be constricted by her makeup/baldness) while Lee Pace’s Ronan The Accuser is suitably glowery and menacing. To top it off we also have a brief tease of space Blofeld Thanos (Voiced by Josh Brolin).

If this seems like a lot of characters- well it is. As part of the Nebula police chasing the guardians we also get supporting turns from the always reliable John C Reilly, Glenn Close with a wacky haircut and Peter Serafinowiz as your typical “by the book” cop.

Inevitably this means some characters get more screen time than others and there is an awful lot to cram in. Thankfully unlike other recent blockbusters the pace is brisk and the story structure seems to hold up without too much lag, meaning I was more inclined to forgive the cliches and “plot twists” you could see coming a mile off.

In short Guardians of the Galaxy may be lightweight but it is also charming and quite simply good fun!

 

P.S If you’re a Marvel fan stay to the end of the credits- less hardcore fans might not get it!
