GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY ★★★ Di­rected by James Gunn. Star­ring Chris Pratt, Zoe Sal­dana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Glenn Close, Beni­cio Del Toro

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - CINEMA - DC

Funny, di­vert­ing, light­weight space opera in which trees, racoons and the good-look­ing guy from

Parks and Recre­ations seek some sort of magic sphere. Ball up a se­ries of dumb-ass sit­u­a­tions from Golden Age sci-fi, bung them in a hat, draw ran­domly and ar­range in se­quence. You’re now look­ing at some­thing like the story to Gunn’s ca­reer­ing film. But the char­ac­ters are so charm­ing and the ban­ter so di­vert­ing that it proves very hard to re­sist. 12A cert, 120 min
