Peter Quill, less commonly known as Star-Lord, finds himself in the middle of a Universe-wide conflict trying to gain control of a sacred orb that has the power to obliterate organic life and planets. Quill, almost a Han Solo style pilot, must team with a group of remarkably different outlaws in a bid to stop it from falling into the wrong hands.
Clocking in at a refreshing two hours, Guardians’ is heart-warming, fun and probably Marvel’s best film to date. Starring; Chris Pratt as Peter Quill, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Racoon, Zoe Salanda as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax and Vin Diesel as Groot (his easiest role yet, probably).
Pulling on emotions followed shortly by laughter, Guardians’ has enough to keep you engaged and wanting more. Reeling in the references to other Marvel features (Thor 2 and The Avengers), Guardians’ manages to put into perspective the scale of the Marvel Universe and how they all link.
Containing one of the greatest 80’s soundtracks of all time, the film is a massive outer space adventure… dare we say it in the realms of Star Wars/Trek combinded with superheroes - needless to say we were impressed.
Finally introducing us the Thanos (voiced by Josh Brolin – likely to voice in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron also), Co-starring the all-star ensemble of Lee Pace, Michael Rooker; Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Glenn Close, John C. Reilly and Benicio Del Toro.
