Review

Marvel’s Z List Avengers is an enjoyable romp but hugely overrated. Star Lord (Pratt), Rocket (Cooper) and Groot (Diesel) are highlights but Saldana and Bautista are grating and Pace’s villain is very poor. Not Pace himself who does what he can, he just got lumbered with a crap character. Groot has more going for him and he’s a tree. This sort of movie needs a Vader and doesn’t get it.

Enjoyable action with some good set pieces but I won’t be too fussed about any sequels or spin off and definitely won’t watch it again.

3.0 Stars (3.0 / 5)
