3 of 5

“..the plot was a little disappointing. There wasn't really much of a story, or it wasn't executed very well..”
by Adrian Foong [Venusbuzz.com]
“..the film's handful of confusingly blocked, excessively noisy, and common-sense-deprived set pieces, not a single image can be described as inspired..”
by Rob Humanick [Slant Magazine]
3.5 of 5

“..the digital effects this time around are far better than what we've experienced previously in the series..”
by Thehorrorchick [Dread Central]

“..the action sequences, while abundant, are nothing more than decent..”
by Jim Vejvoda [IGN Movies]

by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
“..that boredom extends outward to encompass the entire film..”
by Rob Vaux [Mania.com]

by Peter Sobczynski [eFilmCritic.com]
“..no unanswered puzzles in the plot make it an easy watch..”
by Renuka Vyavahare [The Times of India]
“..more aggressively violent and thankfully less mythology-driven than previous installments..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
“..merely a would-be videogame adventure on the big screen, with 3-D added to boost ticket prices and make the murky, dark scenes seem even more muddy..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]

“..it's big, loud and not especially clever..”
by Daniel Bettridge [Sky Movies]

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY :

“..colourful, tongue-in-cheek fun, purpose-built for grown-up lovers of kitsch '80s science-fiction. But the Marvel formula is starting to feel, well, a little too formulaic..”
