MIX UP REVIEWS:


Jan (Age 12): ★★★★1/2

"I really enjoyed this film, it was great. Peter Quill was brilliant, Rocket the Raccoon was hilarious, Baby Groot was awesome, Mrs Smurf (Nebula) was creepy, Mrs Shrek (Gamora) was a bit overdramatic in my opinion, Drax was weird but sometimes quite funny, Yandu was really good, Quill's dad (Ego) was terrifying, Mantis was strange.

The storyline was brilliant, finding out about Quill's parentage, yet still saving the galaxy. I love Baby Groot, he is hilarious, but still pretty cool. Rocket and Quill's arguments were entertaining to watch, I don't think what the result of Rocket's theft was good for the Guardians.

Overall, a pretty good film, which was a bit overdramatic. I'm watching 'Spiderman Homecoming' next"

There's plenty more sci-fi action in the MCU. Men in Black is another fantastic sci-fi movie and James Gunn brings together another ragtag group for The Suicide Squad.
