Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-boxIt’s always fun to cheer for the underdogs and the motley group of heroes in director James Gunn’s adaptation of the lesser-known Marvel Comics property will have you cheering with satisfaction. The superhero film has saturated the movie market with mixed results of comic sequels and reboots, though Marvel adaptations have been on a role recently with two quality offerings for the summer, Captain America: Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Mark it three because Guardians of the Galaxy is the best of the exemplary group, blending great characters with a comedic tone for an impressive visual joy ride. Read More
