3 years ago by Chris

Guardians of the Galaxy is the highly anticipated blockbuster to be released this month. The film has been appreciated by critics and fans alike. The movie is an extension of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, following in the footsteps Joss Whedon’s The Avengers and is to be released on the 1st of August with a budget of $170 million.

The movie begins with Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) looking to steal a mysterious orb on an abandoned planet. The orb possesses unimaginable power. Star-Lord is targeted by a dangerous war criminal named Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) along with his former partner Yondu (Michael Rooker). Hired bounty hunters including Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Groot (Vin Diesel) and Rocket (Bradley Cooper) are sent to retrieve the orb from Star-Lord.

The encounter leads to them ending up in a space prison. There then meet Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) who is on a rage-fueled mission to avenge his wife and daughter who were killed by Ronan. The group decides to help each other out and in the process get filthy rich and eliminate Ronan, with millions of lives hanging in the balance.
The movie has been directed by James Gunn. It is the biggest budget that he has ever worked with, coming up with his most mature film to date. The comic book film has a linear storyline that brings the characters together. The film features various landscapes, introducing you to new worlds. The fight sequences are well executed and will keep you on the edge of your seat.

The visuals and gripping action along with the sense of humor make the movie enjoyable. It contains all the elements that should make it worth the watch this summer. If you haven’t seen the movie as of now, the chances of which are slim, it is high time you catch a show as soon as you can. No doubt, you will have the time of your life!
