Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
Light years from Earth, 26 years after being abducted, Peter Quill finds himself the prime target of a manhunt after discovering an orb wanted by Ronan the Accuser.
I am so glad I got to see this movie in theaters. It is AMAZING! Holy cow, I’m just going to come out and say it, this is the best Marvel movie. I know. Crazy! Who would have thought that a movie that has almost nothing to do with the main Marvel story would be the best, but it is.
Chris Pratt played the leader of the bunch, Starlord, but only kind of. Rocket, Bradley Cooper, was the brains and Bautista and Saldana were the muscle. Starlord was the glue that kept them together and it worked.
My husband, having seen Bautista perform in the WWE, wasn’t sure about his casting, but because of the alien race they made him it was perfect. In fact he provided some of the funniest moments in the movie. When he’s laughing like crazy while everyone else is afraid for their lives it’s hilarious.
I really liked how they played the villains. I liked the fact that after the hulking mass of Dax, Bautista, couldn’t defeat Ronan, Lee Pace, they didn’t even try to have Starlord take him on physically. I liked the fact that Nebula, Karen Gillan, didn’t die and you know she’s coming back. Ronan came off as a complete fanatic and the fact that he wasn’t easily killed was perfect.
The only part of this movie I didn’t like was the end scene after the credits. It didn’t give us anything about what’s to come. Unless they’ll be doing a Howard the Duck movie and I doubt that’s happening any time soon.
I can’t wait for this movie to come out on Blu-ray because it is a day one purchase.
