Guardians of the Galaxy….It’s the tenth installment from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. A human “Peter Quill” after stealing a mysterious ORB in the far is the main target of a manhunt led by Ronan The Accuser. The ORB has a power which could bring down the entire universe under Ronan’s control. To fight Ronan and to save the galaxy Peter join hands with a set of alien misfits who called themselves “Guardians of the Galaxy”.  

Marvel movies are always larger than life and this one is no different.  We were shown superheroes saving the world all this while and now we have Guardians saving the galaxies. James Gunn have assembled a distinctive cast forming a heroic origin film with flamboyant style and no shortage for humor. The characters keep us hooked on to the screen with their funny and heroic antics that will leave you asking for more.

The cast includes Chris Patt(Peter Quill) who is half-human and calls himself ” Star Lord” which is always not acknowledge by others, he fits the role perfectly with slick style,good looks and suave acting. Zoe Saldana(Gamora) who is all green in color is an orphan re-created as a fighting machine by Thanos. She outgrew her Avatar’s bluey image to greeney Gamora“. Dave Bautista(Drax The Destroyer) a warrior in search of vengeance against Ronan who killed his family, was a natural and apt for the role, his WWE image was well explored in this character and he had related to it well.

In every Marvel movie there will be few characters who will just stay in your heart and mind. In this that goes to Rocket & Groot. Rocket is a talking raccoon who is genetically re-created to be an assassin. He’s a fighting machine with great knowledge in weaponry and battle tactics, he also doubles up as bounty hunter. His voice is lent by Bradley Cooper who have done a great job with that. Rocket makes you laugh so much and is one hell of a BADASS!!!.

Then comes GROOT who is a tree like humanoid, an accomplice of Rocket. Groot’s voice was lent by a larger than life actor Vin Diesel, the funny part about this character is that it hardly speaks and when it does all it says is “I’M GROOT”  for anything and everything. It astounds everyone how a actor like Vin Diesel is limited to just few words, the dialogue may be a short one but the character gets imprinted.

James Gunn took these wonderful characters from the comic book and presented in a spectacular way,the screenplay was well scripted with no lags and kept everyone busy throughout watching the spectacle. The VFX was astounding with great detailing in the machines and the characters. The space ship were designed in a very distinctive way. The cinematography was splendid with sharp and tight editing. The background score was impressive and the lead character’s attachment to walkman was portrayed well.

A Half human,an Orphan Alien, Nasty Alien Warrior along with a Walking Tree and a Talking-Tactical Raccoon make a great team who save the galaxies, down late summer this film makes a great outing for kids and the grown ups with ample of humor and great dosage of stylized action topped with spectacular 3D effects. One of my friend stated that this is a new age “Star Wars” we may call this one that, the inter galactic adventure is a fun-filled one.

P.S. I wonder how many have noticed a reference in the movie which would connect this one to “THE AVENGERS”, In the movie there is a character called “The Collector” played by Benicio del Toro. This character appears in a post credit scene from “Captain America-Winter Soldier” which was released earlier this year. From the sources it becomes clear there might be an instance where Guardians might meet Avengers, the wait will be long but the writers have started their work.

+’s – Great writing which has a original feel to it with astounding characters.

Rating: 4.5/5.
