Normally when we bring you audience reactions from early screenings of highly anticipated movies, we try to bring a balance of positive and negative responses in an attempt to paint an unbiased picture.  In the case of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, that proved more difficult than usual since reactions were overwhelmingly positive.  Praise flowed for director James Gunn and his successful balance of humor and action in the difficult space opera genre.  Oddball characters Groot and Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper respectively) got a fair share of the spotlight, and Dave Bautista’s Drax was called “better than Superman” by one viewer.  Overall, things are looking very, very good for the Guardians‘ debut, and for a possible sequel in the years to come.

Also starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Karen GillanGlenn CloseBenicio Del ToroMichael RookerJohn C. Reilly, and Peter SerafinowiczGuardians of the Galaxy opens in 3D on August 1st.  Hit the jump to take a look at some early reactions to Guardians of the Galaxy.

Here’s a sampling of Tweets from early Guardians of the Galaxy screenings:
