Marvel are back and their Universe just got a whole lot bigger and more colourful.
In a galaxy far, far away a Thief, an Assassin, a Racoon, a Dave Bautista and a Tree unite to protect, obtain and again protect a Mcguffin from evil forces.
Run of the mill story arc; sassy band of misfits have to unite and go from squabbling rivals to comrades in arms, blow a lot of stuff up and save the Galaxy. It’s a bit Star Wars, a bit Star Trek and a bit Mars Attacks too.
It is a lot of Fun, Groot in particular was fantastic. There’s blue people, pink people, people with weird heads and it plays for a lot of laughs, landing a higher percentage too.
The cast are all on their respective games, Hollywood has even found a use for Dave Bautista.
Being space set with all the Aliens was meant more CGI that I would have like, I buy in more when its less fantastical but I enjoyed it plenty and i’m fairly sure others will love it.
The Mcguffin is of course an Infinity Stone, a set of stones that at some point will drive some huge 10 hour über crossover movie with ever Marvel character ever in it - I think we’ve seen some of these items in the other Thor and Avengers movies, the mind boggles.
"I am Groot"
"I’m pretty sure the answer is I am Groot"
"I am Groot!"
"Nothing goes over my head!. My reflexes are too fast, I would catch it".
"I am surrounded by the biggest idiots in the galaxy!"
"We’re the Guardians of the Galaxy bitch!
"I AM GROOT!"
