    The exquisitely visual, effects-crammed Marvel space romp “Guardians of the Galaxy” isn’t nearly as smart and cutting-edge as the filmmakers believe it to be. Sure, the film, directed and cowritten by James Gunn, is funny in fits and starts, injecting bold silliness into scenes pleading for a comic payoff. But this is a movie with a confused purpose. Does Gunn want it to be a blistering genre parody or a lighthearted, yet sincere love letter to outer space action movies?
