“A thief (Peter Quill played by Chris Platt), two thugs (Groot and Rocket voiced by Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper), an assassin (Gamora played by Zoe Saldana), and a maniac (Drax played by Dave Bautista)” team up to try to save 12 billion people from extinction at the hands of evil ruler Ronan (Lee Pace).
Peter Quill is hired to steal an orb for a client. He does that, but, once the client finds out that Ronan wants it, he decides that Quill can keep it and shoves him out the door. Outside, Quill is attacked by Gamora who steals the orb for her buyer and both of them are chased by bounty hunters, Groot (“I am Groot”) and Rocket (the racoon).
They are all captured and put in prison, where they promptly stage an escape.
When they are out of prison a battle ensues and Ronan takes the orb becoming the most powerful individual in the galaxy and vowing to kill 12 billion people.
Quill and his team of “losers” are all that stand between Ronan and his goal. Will they succeed?
“Guardians of the Galaxy” is a fantastic galactic adventure with lots of laughs and tons of action. The cast is excellent and the computer generated Groot and Rocket are amazingly life-like (well, as lifelike as a tree can be). The colors are vibrant and the space battles terrifically done.
I am hooked and cannot wait for the next Guardians movie. A pure winner…..a Marvel of movie making.
Stay all the way thru the credits and you will be rewarded with a funny clip.
