Guardians of the Galaxy

“From Marvel, the studio that launched the epic franchises of “Iron Man,” “Thor,” “Captain America” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” comes an unlikely new team-the “Guardians of the Galaxy.”  The Marvel Cinematic Universe expands into the cosmos when brash space adventurer Peter Quill steals a coveted orb and becomes the object of a relentless bounty hunt. To evade his enemies, Quill forges an uneasy truce with Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly assassin Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb, he must rally his ragtag band of misfits for a desperate battle that will decide the fate of the galaxy. Featuring amazing new characters and exclusive bonus features, this must-own blockbuster will have you hooked on a feeling… of pure adrenaline!”

 Behind the Scenes Slideshow


What makes a truly great science fiction movie? Great special effects? Fantastic aliens worlds? Solid character development? The short answer is yes, all of the above and Guardians of The Galaxy has all of this and then some. This is the story of a good bad guy who gets caught up in saving the galaxy with a group made up of a good bad guy, girl, raccoon and tree, from some really bad guys. The writing is tight, clever and funny and the character development is really well done. It’s far too often a science fiction movie relies solely on special effects to impress while ignoring the character development and an intelligent story. Guardians nails it on all of these counts.
Guardians of the Galaxy is well written, the characters have depth and their relationships are believable. There are some really funny moments in this movie and those are made even better in part to the development and personalities of the individual characters. The special effects are incredible and don’t detract from the story at all. Guardians of the Galaxy is a fun, exciting movie definitely a great addition to a Marvel collection. ~MRanere
