Malcolm’s review published on Letterboxd:
"I'm pretty sure the answer is: 'I am Groot'."
Through a microscope, Guardians of the Galaxy is not anything technically groundbreaking. But with the amount of demand this movie needed from its many characters, it was handled with a manageable outcome. This is where it transcends most Marvel movies, where they have no excuse for the terrible characters and choking exposition, because the demand for an epic with multiple planets and characters isn't present in a film like Captain America.
Warning: On a rewatch a lot of the comedy falls flat due to its nature of comedy in that it relies on the surprise factor on a first watch.
