Guardians of the Galaxy, I might dare say, is the best super hero movie to come out this year. Not only does it have the right pieces of the puzzle to be a great movie, it also resonates with today’s generation making it the equivalent of the Star Wars of the 21st century. Sorry dad, my Star Wars is better than your “Star Wars”, scratch that, my Groot can take on your Chewbacca any day.
Universe’s most unexpected super-heroes.
As a Marvel fan (both comic books and films) I was overjoyed to hear the movie will be made with the perfect actors for the parts of wacky and crazy team of the Guardians and honestly nobody could have filled in for them in the film.
The CGI in the film was terrific, not too much nor too little. A perfect balance not giving the viewers an oversaturation of too much computerized sci-fi. You could lose yourself in the beautiful sceneries, always doubting yourself what was real props or CGI.
The Guardians’ cast is so great that identifying with the characters seems so easy.
The film’s unlikely hero is Quill (Chris Pratt), an eccentric gunfighter in the Han Solo mould who we meet stealing a metal orb coveted by the evil warlord Ronan. When he dispatches his top assassin, the green-skinned Gamora (Zoe Saldana), to recover the artefact, the pair find themselves locked up in prison, along with the galaxy’s most unlikely bounty hunters – a gun-toting raccoon (Bradley Cooper) and his sidekick (Vin Diesel) who just happens to be a walking tree.
The actors do a really good job portraying their characters, making them almost lifelike. We get to learn about their backstories making us relate to them on one level or another, every Guardian having his own “moment to shine on the stage” for individual development.
In all, the film is brilliantly done, full of action pact scenes, romantic moments, just the right amount of drama, tragic backstories and comedy, comedy, comedy. Just go watch the movie.
