Fifth about The Seventh

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy: James Gunn’s film is very entertaining, thanks to the light tone (it doesn’t take itself too seriously, but doesn’t fall into parody territory) and the inspired choice of soundtrack. The relentless pace (the action scenes are varied and efficient) hides somewhat the fact that the story is formulaic (and suffers from an excessive number of villains and/or antagonists, not allowing most of them to feel well-developed), but still gives enough space for the characters to display an attractive banter and relationships. Visually, the film is well-done; only the character design is mostly lacking (since they don’t go much further than a neon-colored skin). The obvious exceptions are Rocket and Groot, also the best characters in the film, grounded on good voice acting by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel. In fact, the five central characters and well-played by the cast, and they bring some heart to the proceedings.
