J&J Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy-5Marvel has done it again! The Guardians of the Galaxy was a smash hit. At first glance at the trailers, my expectations of the movie were very low because these were not your well known Marvel superheroes or super heroines.

The movie starts off with the main character Peter Quill, played by Chris Pratt for the opening scene. Peter Quill is an space outlaw and a thief and he calls himself, star-lord, which no one seems to know him by. Peter is followed by Rocket Raccoon, voiced by Bradley Cooper , a genetically enhance rodent who is brilliant and well armed. Groot, voiced by Vin Diesel, is a strong and loyal living tree creature with a lack of a vocabulary. Drax played, by Dave Bautista, is a powerful alien warrior with no common sense. Gamora, played by Zoe Saldana, is a sexy, lethal, no-non sense alien assassin. Other actors and well known people make their appearance in movie like Michael Rooker, Lee Peace, Glenn Close, Stan Lee, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Benicio Del Toro and Lloyd Kaufman.

RonanDue to Peter’s actions, he encounters these other beings who try to hurt him but later come to his aid. The story follows after both ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Thor 2’ movies for the Marvel film productions. The movie is filled with action, comedy, romance, and drama. The animation is spectacular. The story line is very strong and touching . The actors play their roles fantastically. This movie would spur people on to read the graphic novels. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone and this would by a nice addition to your Marvel movie collection. We would give this movie a five out of five.
