Peter Anderson’s review published on Letterboxd:
When I saw this at the cinema I had the most fun at the cinema this year and that was with a lot of competition from other comic book films. James Gunn and his crew have created a fully realised universe and peopled it with a perfect five man band of misfits to take on a religious maniac who threatens everyone's way of life.
I think I fell for this film right from the scene where our hero Peter Quill is dancing to music on his Walkman while stealing the macguffin from the desolate planet Morag!
The characters, the sets, the music and best of all the dialogue make this film such a joy to watch and joy is something to be treasured.
