Guardians of the Galaxy (Trailer #1) Review
Well that’s certainly something, not sure what exactly but yeah. Overall I am liking the look and feel of the characters and this world they’ve built, seems like a well-established set of worlds. I do have a problem with the structure of this trailer, the first half is a minute and a bit of character establishment which I get but really meant the content was just a teaser trailer, slightly disappointed on that front, hoping for more story structure in the next trailer. Another opinion is that past the people who are already on board for this film (me and the nerd minority) I don’t see many people being won over by this trailer; think they needed a stronger sell. I do however love that music at the end. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.
“Oh am sorry. I, I didn’t know how this machine worked” You’ll get it.
My Score: B
Release date: 1st August 2014
In the far reaches of space, an American pilot named Peter Quill finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan. In order to evade Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a group of misfits including Gamora, Rocket, Drax the Destroyer and Groot. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand — with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
What I liked
#8. Nova Corps
The Nova Corps are an intergalactic military/police force in the marvel universe and if you see any one wearing that uniform then that’s what they are. Interestingly I seem to remember them all dying in the comics, not my area of the comics to be fair so I’d take that with a grain of salt. On the other hand I really like these two as comedic law enforcement to these insane intergalactic characters.
#7. Groot and Rocket
HAHA this will be fun, if nothing else fun. What we have here is a genetically altered racoon who likes setting fires and shooting large guns, and a humanoid tree alien that in the comics could only say his name, that may change in the film but let’s see what happens.
#6. Drax the Destroyer
This mad man will be interesting to watch, and if you want a connection to Thanos he’s got a real problem with him. Thanos actually killed his family and so Drax is out for revenge. He has super strength and incredible durability, not sure how the film will change him but we’ll see.
The ship Star-Lord uses is simply called Ship, past that I am pretty sure it will be different. Looks cool mind you and Chris Pratt will work as a pilot. Really hope there will be some kick ass space battles.
#4. In His Contract
Why is he so red? Looks like he ran a marathon and then jumped into a sauna. But wow having known his work on Parks and Rec, this is a really impressive transformation. The picture is purely for ladies though, your welcome.
#3. Drax vs. Ronan
So close to missing this split second scene which is really interesting. First of all that is Drax being picked up, not many can do that and then I spotted the hammer so really it could only be Ronan. Ronan is Thanos’s right hand man and is a really powerful character. No idea how Lee Pace is going to play it but I am interested to see.
#2. The Guardians of the Galaxy
One of my favourite parts is this shot and the music is so damn weird, absolutely love it. “IIIIII am hooked on a feeling. Am high on believing. That you’re in love with me, am hooked on a feeling.” James Gunn had a hand in this trailer.
This image alone wins me over to this character. The flipping the bird, the attitude, his totally laid back attitude to authority, love it all. And if you look at that criminal record next to him you will see this gem ‘1 count of sex crime: “Illegal Manipulation of Gramosian Duchess”.’ HAHA I want to see that in the Blue Ray extras.
What I Didn’t Like
- The trailer could have had more structure.
- Less quick choppy scenes randomly placed together.
- Next trailer I would like to see a brief idea of the plot.
Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this newest trailer?
