I had a chance to attend a preview of Guardians of the Galaxy. I went in with high hopes and I was not disappointed! It is full of ultra-villainy villains and incredible special effects! Before I go any further, let me tell you what it's about:
"From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy's fate in the balance."
I don't want to give any spoilers away, but I guess I will say that I had some tears in the beginning, laughed uproariously throughout and was thoroughly entertained. The special effects are incredible. Two of the main characters are a raccoon and a tree guy, yet I totally believed them as characters. In fact, Groot is my favorite. Yes, I still want to grow a Groot!
I loved that this band of enemies come together to save the galaxy and become friends in the process. Yeah, yeah... I know it sounds corny but I loved it! Chris Pratt rocked it as Quill or "Star Lord" as he likes to be called. Vin Diesel did an amazing job with Groot! Have I mentioned that I want my own Groot?
If you are a fan of the Marvel comics movies, this one does not disappoint! I think you'll really enjoy it! Guardians of the Galaxy comes out Nationwide on Friday, August 1st! Have fun and don't forget the popcorn!
