It’s no surprise that Guardians of the Galaxy is an unheard of quantity amongst the non-comic book aficionados amongst us. In fact even amongst comic book aficionados it rings relatively few bells. Post the success of The Avengers, Marvel, confident in their ability to select only the most likely success stories in the “unlikely-blockbuster-material” pile, decided upon Guardians. Marvel got it right. The film is a joy to watch, with a ridiculously catchy accompanying soundtrack. Most definitely the best Star Wars film since Empire Strikes Back.
