Review Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

Likewise with Drax, he’s managed to be one of the key characters in this movie, not to mention his well-done comedy delivery. As for other characters, such as Kevin Bacon, who plays himself, he also succeeds in delivering fun and interesting delivery. Kevin here is made to look like he doesn’t care out of fear, but ends up being a gift that touches Quill’s heart.

Music featured by James Gunn

Surely the soundtrack in this movie needs to be applauded. Not only is it an add-on, but the music included in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie is also of great interest to those who love this cosmic force. Music can be an important factor for Gunn, as it is important to know that the music in the film has a different meaning and purpose in explaining the film’s story.
