...and they're extremely good. Yep, as of right now, Guardians of the Galaxy is rocking a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. And as if that wasn't good enough, it's out of 25 reviews and it has an average rating of 8.2.
Here are what some top critics are saying. Scott Foundas of Variety says:
The cheeky comic tone keeps things buoyant - as does Chris Pratt's winning performance as the most blissfully spaced-out space crusader this side of Buckaroo Banzai.
Justin Lowe of The Hollywood Reporter states:
A well-matched ensemble rises to the challenge of launching a heroic origin film with distinctive style, abundant thrills and no shortage of humor.
and James Rocchi of The Wrap declares:
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.
This is quite a good sign for the film, especially after months of mixed buzz about it's success. Well, if these reviews are a sign of what's to come, not only will this NOT be Marvel's first flop, but it could very well be one of the year's biggest films.
Update: It is at a 94% because of this review.
