I could nitpick that the green screen was badly done this time, that the dialogue was corny, Eva Green was badly cast as “A Dame to Kill For”, or that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was only cast because he is awesome, but that ultimately his character had no point. But the reality is that the movie failed on two much greater levels.
The best scene in the film is when all four Turtles are in an elevator awaiting epic battle and they start a hip-hop beat. I was smiling the entire time this scene went on because I felt like those were my Turtles and they would so obviously break out a beat before fighting a foe.
It’s a little bit of Star Wars, a little bit of Kevin Bacon, and a lot of pelvic sorcery. Guardians of the Galaxy is one of the best movies we’ve ever seen.
