Iron Man, Thor, Captain America …… they’ve all become familiar faces in cinemas over the past couple of years, as the Marvel universe rolls out blockbuster after blockbuster. But super heroes don’t come in just a variety of shapes: they come in different sizes as well, as the latest one shows.

Film review: Guardians Of The Galaxy

Jul 31 2014

This year’s summer blockbuster season at the cinema is well into its stride – week four, in fact.  Transformers: Age Of Extinction, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and Hercules have all had their turn.  But now come the unlikeliest bunch of heroes of the lot – a thief, two thugs, a murderer and a maniac – and they all have the fate of 12 billion people in their hands.  They’re the Guardians Of The Galaxy.
