    This is an extremely safe movie. They don't take chances, don't do anything surprising, and follow the same Marvel formula that you've already seen in The Avengers, Iron Man, Thor and whatever else you want to name. If you liked all that those had to offer, you'll find more of the same in store for you, here--though, perhaps not as much of it.

    If I sound a bit ambivalent about the film, that's because I am. The technical production that they're putting on display is thoroughly impressive--yet, beyond that and the break-away, pop-culture, Family Guy-style gags, there's not much to sink your teeth into.

    There are no wonderful character creations, like Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man or Tom Hiddleston's Loki. There is no story with a bit of deeper meaning, like Captain America 2. There are no stand-out memorable moments, like Joss Whedon gave us. It's all... very safe, almost timid. There are no risks taken; completely by the book, paint by numbers.

    That's not to say that Guardians of the Galaxy is a poor film, because it's not. But it's not a particularly interesting film. I've seen it before, and seen it very recently. Swap the characters around, and you're watching any recent Marvel production. Will I remember it by next Summer? Probably not.

    Just bad storytelling. Amusing movie, cute moments, fun moments, exciting moments, held together for no reason other than the writers decided that the actions of the individuals would best lead to the next sequence. 8 years ago
