    Guardians Of The Galaxy is a 2014 American Superhero film directed by James Gunn and was distributed to theaters by Marvel Studios.

Knowing that Infinity War is almost here, I decided I would give the older films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe a re-watch again.

The Plot: Brash space adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the quarry of relentless bounty hunters after he steals an orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain. To evade Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with four disparate misfits: gun-toting Rocket Raccoon, treelike-humanoid Groot, enigmatic Gamora, and vengeance-driven Drax the Destroyer. When he discovers the orb’s true power, Quill must rally his ragtag group to save the galaxy.

Characters:

Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Starlord: The half-human, half-alien leader of the Guardians who was abducted from Missouri as a child in 1988 and raised by a group of alien thieves and smugglers called the Ravagers. He is funny and charismatic, and though he seems reckless serves the greater good.

Zoe Saldana as Gamora: An orphan from an alien world, she seeks redemption for her past crimes. She was trained by Thanos to be his personal assassin. She has trouble finding her place within the group of misfits.

Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer: A warrior who seeks to avenge his family’s death at the hands of Ronan. A no non-since kinda guy, Drax provides brute force to the team.

Bradley Cooper as Rocket Racoon: A genetically engineered raccoon-like bounty hunter and mercenary who is a master of weapons and battle tactics. A little crazy and mainly on the adventure for violence and riches, Rocket’s arsenal of weapons proves helpful to the team.

Vin Diesel as Groot: A tree-like humanoid who is the accomplice of Rocket. Though only able to speak three words, Groot is a true hero.

Lee Pace as Ronan: A Kree radical who agrees to retrieve an artifact for Thanos in exchange for eradicating his mortal enemies, the Xandarians.

Quality: Kick-starting with a wonderful nod to Raiders of the Lost Ark, Guardians is a weird but epic entry in the MCU. With some great comedic banter between all its characters. Beautiful special effects and it’s excellent casting, Guardians of the Galaxy is a thrilling adventure.

Conclusion: Introducing a load of new concepts to the MCU and another infinity stone, Guardians of the Galaxy is a fun and important entry into the MCU that is worth watching.

Rating: 9.5/10
