Misfit Heroes Guard the Marvel Legacy

guardians of the galaxy copy    You all remember what happened in New York with the Avengers back in 2012; now from the outskirts of the galaxy comes the biggest band of misfits you’ve ever seen. They are the Guardians of the Galaxy, and they are here to save the galaxy from the evil Ronan the Accuser.

Guardians of the Galaxy has a wide variety of actors and actresses which includes Chris Pratt as the not-so-famous outlaw Starlord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, a warrior, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Racoon,  and who could forget Vin Diesel as Groot. Also starring are Michael Rooker as Yondu, and Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, and Seth Green as Howard the Duck.

The movie starts out with Ronan the Accuser trying to destroy the Galaxy using an infinity stone. However our heroes (who were former outlaws) will stop at nothing to stop him and his evil henchmen. But of course, as in all movies, another person has to try to stand in their way, and that person actually is the alien Yondu (who coincidentally raised Starlord from childhood).  After dealing with Yondu, the team successfully defeats Ronan in a way that you will just have to see in theaters.

Overall I would give this film five out of five stars. While I think that the Avengers were cooler than the Guardians, they don’t fail to please.  This all-star cast and a great story made the film what it is, which is a masterpiece. However don’t take my word for it. Go see it, it’s not a film to be missed.
