The film bucks the trend of having a "real" tone that comic books movies have taken, and instead takes it self as a joke.
Guardians of the Galaxy follows in the same light as any Transformers movie. Poorly written pop corn movie, with zany characters, over the top special effects implausible situations, last minute saves, with some ridiculous ending. There is a dance sequence at the end of heavens sake.
No consistency with the film. The movie setups a Foot Loose joke, then brings it up again to reinforces the joke. If your going to have a dance number at the end of the film, and not use Foot Loose, why setup the joke at all?
There is no decent story here, no depth. I was begging for some relationship between Star Lord and his surrogate father Yondu Udonta. You could tell it was there. As Udonata's plane went down, some simple dialogue "I'm going to crash.... SON".
Personally I like a good well thought out story, and this film is anything but that. The film feels like I do after I masturbate.. empty.
