First of all anyone intending to see this movie, there is an extra scene after the end credits.
Guardians of the Galaxy presents quite a treat for Doctor Who and Star Trek fans as it featured Karen Gillan (Doctor Who’s Amy Pond) and Zoe Saldana (Star Trek’s Uhura) in which their characters are sisters. So Amy and Uhura are sisters here.
Of the two sisters only Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is one of the said guardians and Guardians of the Galaxy turns out to be a very fun movie.
Quite intriguing opening scene of Peter Quill as a boy before we see him grow up to become Star Lord as Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Star Lord) did well to carry this fun ride of a film.
A definitely suitable movie for anyone who wants to have fun filled for parts of a day before eventually going back to normality.
Guardians of the Galaxy was reviewed in At The Movies in which Margaret Pomerantz gave it four stars and David Stratton three stars with the latter saying it is “a cheerfully mindless affair aimed squarely at fans of the comics and the young at heart in general”.
The Sydney Sunday Telegraph on August 10 had Nick Dent mentioning Doctor Who in his review of Guardians of the Galaxy by saying Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan.
Dent however was not impressed with Guardians of the Galaxy as it came with the headline “A bit of a waste of space” and Dent giving it the verdict of “Space junk” and it is an opinion that I do not agree with.
