Disney presents this very kid-friendly space adventure based on the Marvel comic, and, with its retro-kitsch feel, grown-ups should lap it up, too. Chris Pratt has no discernible superpower as Peter Quill, except to brilliantly wisecrack his way out of sticky situations after pilfering a mystical orb coveted by power-hungry aliens Ronan (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan). Zoe Saldana plays Nebula's adoptive sister, a green-skinned warrior determined to stop Ronan getting the orb and achieving galactic domination, and who also serves as a comic foil to the other, less principled Guardians. There's plenty of action but this is, above all, a bright and breezy affair where a tough-talking raccoon (delightfully voiced by Bradley Cooper) threatens to steal the show. He's the sort of fuzzy, fast-talking sidekick you'd expect to find in a Disney animation, as is walking tree Groot, who's suitably voiced by Vin Diesel. Pratt remains the linchpin, however, straddling the line between bold and brazen in writer/director James Gunn's fun, exciting and psychedelic vision of the galaxy.
A boy abducted by aliens grows up to be an interstellar mercenary. He and a band of misfits break out of a prison space station with a plan to sell a mysterious orb to the highest bidder - but cross a warlord, who intends to turn it into a powerful weapon. Sci-fi adventure, starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, with the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.
