Guardians Of The Galaxy

Rated PG-13 / 2 hr 1 min / Action - Adventure - Scifi

What is it about?

Star Lord is an interstellar criminal who has stolen an orb that is worth quite a bit of money. What he doesn't know is that it contains a powerul item that many powerul beings would like to get their hands on. That includes the mad titan Thanos. Thanos has dispatched Ronan to get the sphere with the help of his daughters Gamora and Nebula. In exchange for the orb Thanos promises to destroy a planet of beings that Ronan is not too fond of.

You will like it if...

You like epic scifi movies that are filled with heart and laughs along the way. The closest movie I can compare this to would be Serenity which was the movie version of the fantastic Firely TV series. I suggest you pick up both if possible. Joss Wheeden wrote for that series. He's the same guy that did the Avengers movie. Rocket and Groot steal most of the scenes they are in which explains why they are voiced by Vin Deisel and Bradley Cooper while a lesser known actor takes the lead role. The weakest actor of the bunch, Bautista, plays a character that is so clueless that his lack of acting experience plays into very well. This is yet another hit for Marvel. Guardians of the Galaxy will have you laughing at and cheering for these heros up until the credits roll at the end.
