Marvel has another marvelous movie

Marvel’s newest creation is the cleverly written Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel is the franchise that made Captain America, Thor, Iron Man and many more, but  Guardians of the Galaxy takes Marvel to new levels in the setting of a different galaxy.

They take viewers through all the various planets that are inhabited. These planets contain all different types of people and objects that are opposites from each other.

At times when the movie is semi-serious, Marvel was able to keep it light-hearted and funny. When the movie unexpectedly starts out being serious and sad with Peter (Chris Pratt) as a boy in a very tragic situation, Pratt was able to portray Peter very well by always having a witty response. It’s very important to pay attention to what Peter didn’t do and how it affects him, because it shows up again towards the end of the movie.

Peter finds himself in a bit of a situation when there are people chasing after him and the orb that he stole. The villain Ronan (Lee Pace) is also after the orb, which ends up bringing four of the most unlikely people to rely on one another.

Each character goes through their own struggles but they are able to press on. Pratt and Zoe Saldana as Gamora really made their emotions known, which made it easier to feel involved in the movie. Every character also has their own sense of humor, which added to the movie experience. For example, towards the end when they are fighting Ronan, Peter said, “I’m distracting you, you big turd blossom.”

The music choice, which was mostly 70’s, really added more emotion to the scenes. The songs that they chose made the scenes have a light-hearted feeling.

Guardians of the Galaxy is great for everyone that can be open-minded while watching the movie, since it is a sci-fi movie that includes some unrealistic elements. Overall the movie was great and was able to keep the audience engaged. This movie gets a five out of five stars.
