This summer was insane for movies, and it’s only a precursor for what’s to come in the next two years, especially from the Marvel universe. When I first saw the trailer for Guardians, I wasn’t convinced that it was going to be anything special, because I’ve never heard of these people, although it ties into the Marvel world that the majority of people are familiar with (the Avengers, that is). I didn’t think I was going to see myself watching it in a theatre – more like a rental, but because of the high reviews, and the fact that there might have been a possibility that I would have been lost while watching the next Avengers movie, I just said ‘what the heck’ and went for it. The worst that could happen would be that I’d hate the movie.
Well, it turns out that I didn’t hate the movie; I liked it a lot actually. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, David Bautista, a Raccoon voiced by Bradley Cooper, and a giant tree figured that says the same three words over and over, voiced by Vin Diesel (go figure) made a very unlikely bunch of heroes to like, mainly because they’re all degenerates, and also because the chemistry was well enough that it made the movie go by easily without hesitation or awkward moments. There was no shortage of action involved, and it was all entertaining right till the end. The storyline is your usual story of betrayal by a bad guy who wants to take over the universe for himself, so there’s that, and then there’s a bounty that brings a bunch of criminals together for a common cause and thus a bond is formed.
It’s a great movie that I’d recommend to anyone to see, considering my first thoughts of it before I even watched it. Summer blockbusters are meant to be high on the entertainment scale, and this one had it. It was funny, and for action junkies, they get their fair fix of that to hold them over while eating overpriced food while their feet are on sticky floors. It’s a good time, so indulge in it. But for now, this is my opinion, this is my review
That’s My Word & It STiXX
