Trivia

In the comics, Drax is green. However, for the film, his color was changed to a muddier grey, partly because the movie already had a bright-green character (Gamora), but mostly to distinguish his appearance from the Hulk. See more »

Goofs

(at around 54 mins) When entering Knowhere it is said to be a planet of outlaws with little to no order. Later during the big fight of the Guardians, Peter Quill gets the group to calm down by yelling they are about to make a trade for 4 billion units. It's hard to believe no one in a planet of outlaws would try and attack them for the orb to get the money themselves. See more »

Guardians of Galaxy
2 November 2020 | by auuwwsSee all my reviews

One of the funniest Marvel films is a comedy movie with distinction. A simple story. All the heroes of the film were excellent, especially Drax, Rocket, Groot, and Alcmestri among the heroes of the film was excellent. The music scene was great, especially Come And Get Your Love.
