Chris Pratt is buff and often shirtless. Zoe Saldana is green. And Bradley Cooper is a talking raccoon.
If nothing else, Guardians of the Galaxy very much has our attention.
But should it have our money? Should we go see Marvel's latest superhero movie this weekend? A number of critics around the Internet have weighed in and here's a rundown of what they have to say...
The people who made this movie must have had a swell time in the process, and it's nice to see a summer epic that takes itself so unseriously. - Joe Morgenstern
The motley crew's repartee makes for comedy that's surprisingly consistent, yet freewheeling and sharp enough to pinball from Kevin Bacon to Jackson Pollock and back. - Tom Russo
