REVIEWS: Critics Everywhere Are Falling In Love With The GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Guardians of the Galaxy is currently at a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics everywhere are raving. It's official...the film is great! Check out the reviews below!

 

"A well-matched ensemble rises to the challenge of launching a heroic origin film with distinctive style, abundant thrills and no shortage of humor."
Justin Lowe, THR

"James Gunn's old-school romp in the far reaches of the universe owes more to Joss Whedon's “Firefly” than to his “Avengers,” blending action, thrills, and humor with skill."
James Rocchi, The Wrap

"A motley crew of mercenaries and mutants are the galaxy's last best hope in Marvel's gently subversive superhero sendup."
Scott Foundas, Variety

"Possibly one of the funniest (and strangest) Marvel movies yet, James Gunn and his cast deliver an infinitely entertaining space opera that's really something quite special. J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars" movie now has even more to live up to."
Edward Douglas, ComingSoon

"If you thought Avengers Assemble was the ultimate comic book hero mash-up, wait ’til you get a load of this."
David Edwards, Mirror

"At its core, Guardians is a fleet-footed throwback to the action-adventure movies of yesteryear. Remember when big-screen entertainment wasn't so serious and just really good fun?"
Simon Reynolds, Digital Spy

ESPN Teams With Marvel For Three Humorous GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Segments


ESPN has just released three humorous videos on YouTube which feature the "head of ESPN security" telling his team about the Guardians of the Galaxy, who are supposedly the "new security team."
