From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last desperate stand—with the galaxy's fate in the balance.

It also featured James Gunn as director and co-writer. That was an interesting choice because he’d mostly been known for horror movies like the fantastic Slither. He and Nicole Perlman, his writing partner created a great cast of characters and a story featuring the creation of the Guardians of the Galaxy, their nemesis Ronan the Accuser from the Kree world, and brought Thanos more into the MCU by introducing his two daughters Gamora and Nebula.
The movie would also be notable because it featured an amazing soundtrack of songs mostly from the 1970s. This was also a first. That was apparent right from the start when Peter Quill lands on the planet Morag to steal an Infinity Stone and starts singing along to Come and Get Your Love by Redbone. The song has an infectious beat and a singalong chorus that immediately caught the audience’s attention. That would be followed by hit after hit Like the Five Stairsteps’ O-o-h Child at the climax of the battle with Ronan.
Anyway, the story focuses upon Ronan working for Thanos to recover an Infinity Stone. That goes wrong right off the bat when Quill steals it. Thanos’ daughter Gamora is then sent to recover it. Quill is in trouble as well as he double crosses his own group the Reavers, which brings in Rocket and Groot who are bounty hunters. They all get thrown in prison where they meet Drax the Destroyer. Together they form the Guardians who want to thwart Ronan and Thanos’ plans for the Infinity Stone. They go from planet to planet introducing new characters like the Collector and new world’s such as Xandar the home of the Nova Corps, which are all famous from Marvel comics.
There’s plenty of action such as the huge battle at the end versus Ronan, as well as comedy. Quill and Rocket for instance are always at the center of jokes like when the former flips off the Nova Corps saying he was sorry he didn’t know how his finger worked. Drax plays the straight man but makes hilarious remarks as well such as when he says nothing goes over his head because his reflexes are so fast he would catch it. Groot who only says “I am Groot” also gets in on the laughs.
Overall, this was some rip roaring fun, and would set the stage for future Marvel movies with both the characters, and its use of comedy. Definitely at the top end of MCU releases.
With so many different things happening at Marvel nowadays - it is hard to tell when (what year) things are happening. Take the new Marvel Avenger "Civil War" movie for example. In this very recent movie - Spider Man is a real young kid still in high school with pimples and awful costume.
What about all the previous (and terrific) Spider-Man Movies where he is in college? Who knows? Who cares? We're selling tickets here babe!
I believe "Guardians" is set in our time period, same as the Avengers (Why? because "Star Lord" is taken from Earth as a young child in our time period and is NOT delivered to his Dad as he was supposed to be), but now he is grown up and lives in a distant part of the galaxy. Great characters, great adventure, great directing, funny and serious all at one time. A great film with a lot of fun. Get snacks and a blanket and watch the whole thing! Crank up the sound, Great soundtrack. Highly recommended.
The movie was not good. Literally the only good line in the movie is when the tree says "I am Groot". I am really struggling here to write a review though because there was not much from the movie that I found noteworthy to even comment on - good or bad.

So, what's not to like? Guardians of the Galaxy is such fun. I saw it some time ago and decided to buy the BluRay because I have just ordered the Guardians of the Galaxy II, and I wanted to watch the first one first, if you get my meaning. The video and audio of the BluRay are excellent. The movie has such vibrant colours with equally vibrant characters. The soundtrack is superb, especially if you enjoy the early 70s music, and I do, and it fits the tone of the movie perfectly. The character, Peter Quill, who likes to be called Star Lord (Chris Pratt) loves his ancient Sony Walkman and the cassette he plays upon it. He will burst into dance at the strangest of times. Don't we all???
The BluRay comes with the usual extra which shows us how the movie was made. I would suggest that anyone new to the movie should watch the extra afterwards as, for me, finding out how special effects are done can spoil a movie for me. Who wants to visualise wires or a blue screen while trying to be mentally transported in the movie's world?
If your spirits are low and you need a bit of a lift and your sense of humour remains intact, check it out. Oh, and it's not for young children.
Now one of my favourite movies, Guardians is just.........fun, lots and lots of fun, plus it's also really cool, it has a talking Racoon who fires a huge rifle for crying out loud, that could have easily been stupid but ended up being one of the best parts of the movie.
This movie wasn't just successful, it was a major hit. My younger brother and both parents also thoroughly enjoyed this movie, especially Groot, and trust me, that's a pretty big deal. In a way, it's crazy, some parts a really crazy, this movie isn't a typical Sci-Fi movie, and it is silly in places, but that doesn't matter, it all adds to what I said before.....so much fun.
It will be interesting to see where they go next with these characters. We have only until next year (2017) to wait, and we also get the new addition to the Marvel cinematic universe, the new 15 year old Spiderman in Spiderman:Homecoming. Let's go Marvel.
Updated: Still is one of Marvel's best, I recently got this on 4K, sadly hit and miss picture, ranging from just a bit better than normal blu-ray to pretty good, so 3.5 out of 5 for that, but still a 4.5 to 5 movie.
Ganz ohne Zweifel tragen die Charaktere den größten Teil dazu bei, die kaum unterschiedlicher sein könnten - sowohl in Charakterzügen als auch Erscheinungsbild. Und wenn dann so eine wild durcheinander gewürfelte Truppe als Team funktionieren muss, bleibt kaum ein Auge trocken. Viel spannender und amüsanter als die Handlung an sich war stets die Frage, was für einen Reißer die Figuren als nächstes bringen. Eindeutig ist dabei Rocket der Spitzenreiter - kaum ist er auf der Bildfläche, muss ich schon lachen. Für mich ist der Kleine definitiv das Zugpferd des Films!
Guardians of the Galaxy fällt in meine Marvel Lieblingskategorie: bunt, verrückt, laut, chaotisch und saulustig. Die Settings sind herrlich abgedreht, die Charaktere harmonieren für die Geschichte perfekt, der Soundtrack überrollt einen mit einem Nostalgieflash nach dem anderen und auch die Story gehört im Genre der Comicverfilmungen in die obere Liga. Hier passt einfach alles und ich könnte wetten, dass niemand diesen Film nur einmal ansieht. Absolut top!
Chris Pratt is on stellar form as Starlord, the best space outlaw since Han Solo. We follow his journey as he hurtles between planets, ships and prisons, picking up various characters along the way - a talking raccoon, a walking tree, a green skinned lady and a (probably) ex WWE wrestler. The plot is fuelled by the search for something called The Orb, our merry band want it but so so some very bad people who intend to do some very bad things. It's largely a macguffin though which Starlord himself admits - comparing it to The Maltese Falcon and The Ark. It services the plot and gives reasons for the blur of top notch action that follows.
There are some great, quieter character beats as well as we move along, giving us reasons to care about these eccentric characters. It's not just Pratt who excels - Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and Bradley Cooper are all excellent and Vin Diesel makes the most of what is essentially just one line of dialogue. Each character has their chance to shine and their own demons to face. The big bad guy Thanos is lurking in the shadows but there's plenty of other ace villains to go around.
It all looks great as you'd expect, the budget has been well spent and director James Gunn brings a fair amount to invention and imagination. The script is witty and funny, at times very funny, and the soundtrack is outstanding. Basically I feel that I can't talk this up enough - if you're a fan of The Avengers, Star Wars, Indy, Spaceballs, whatever then check this out. Stick with it right to the end of the credits as well, there's one last touch of class
It's really good. The world needs more films like this.
I am fed up of watching regurgitated drivel about ------ 'man' of some kind. Well actually I've stopped watching them.
This is creative, it has some clever characters and on paper they should never have worked, but they do.
It's funny. It's not taken itself too seriously.
This is a franchise that should live on for a few more films, but then please, give it the graceful ending and leave it.
