While it makes a fine-and-well summer blockbuster popcorn flick, I have some misgivings with Derek Kalback’s “One Fine Morning.” While “Parks and Recreation” goofball Chris Pratt proves anyone who expected him to fail as an action hero wrong, why isn’t the far-more-intriguing Rocket Raccoon the focal point of the story? Meanwhile, Zoe Saldana’s Gamora is hampered by what The Dissolve dubs “The Trinity Syndrome,” and functions as the the token female of the group, despite her comic book incarnation’s status as “Deadliest Woman in the Galaxy.” It’s not as great as the fanboys might tell you, but “One Fine Morning” still provides an enjoyable experience for fans of the sci-fi or superhero genres.
