Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Fun Sci Fi Action Adventure that doesn’t take itself too seriously!

Part hapless hero, part sci fi, this movie will have you laughing and praying this rag tag group can stay alive long enough to save the galaxy. Chris Pratt plays Peter Quill, aka ‘Star Lord’, an orphan abducted by aliens as a child and raised as a thief and scavenger of the universe. Zoe Saldana plays Gamora, a kick ass assassin who turns on her keepers in order to steal back the latest item Peter ‘acquired’ in order to save the universe.


With a price on his head for backing out of sharing the bounty on his latest stolen acquisition, “Rocket” the cybernetically enhanced raccoon in all his devious glory (voiced by Bradley Cooper), and his friend and sidekick, tree man, Groot, who’s entire vocabulary is different intonations of “I am Groot” (voiced by Vin Diesel) attempt to kidnap and bring in Peter for the reward money. But Gamora gets there about the same time to steal the artifact and somehow they all get arrested and sent to an offworld prison, where they reluctantly team up together to break out, and include another prisoner, Drax, played by Dave Bautista, a character who’s race takes everything literally, so of course even basic metaphors are completely lost on him.


This is an action adventure movie filled with laugh out loud rude jokes that are right on the edge of being R rated, sci fi that’s just on the edge of being totally non-plausible. With anti-heroes that are almost too pathetic to ever accomplish what they’re after, underneath their tough exteriors they don’t want to see the galaxy destroyed any more than anyone else does, so you root for them all the way. If you love sci fi flicks, and a good laugh with some great cinematography and non-stop action, you must see this movie! And I can’t wait for the next one!
