moviedave’s review published on Letterboxd:
This is a movie that shouldn't have worked!
A standard Marvel formula and a simplistic script hidden beneath high tech CGI.
Part movie, part video game, GOTG works purely and simply thanks to the injected humour of its dis-functional cast.
Who would have thought a talking racoon and a tree could be so entertaining? and lets not forget, Star-Lord, Chris Pratt who puts in an admirable performance and busts out some crazy dance moves.
Also kick-ass girl, Zoe Saldana, as green girl, Gamora, even coloured like a can of mushy peas, she still looks yummy enough to eat!
The only team member I did not warm to was, Drax. I just found his character and dialogue awkward for some reason, oh well, them's the breaks.
For ' DR Who, fans' spot Amy Pond!
Definitely a good way to spend a couple of hours at the cinema watching this.
I look forward to the next instalment.
