Official Score = 4 Devils
Official Score = 4 Devils

So far I have to say that I am pretty impressed with what Marvel has been doing in it’s continuous creation of mega-box office smash hits from the comics that helped bring Marvel in to the world of popularity!

Let’s take, The Avengers (2012), besides the fact that this movie is the culmination of a lot of the truly fantastic Marvel Super Hero franchises that have come out in the new millennium, (including: Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor & Captain America,) this movie has helped catapult these stars and their respective independent movie series in to the stratosphere!

And you know what? Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014) is another ultra successful notch in Marvel’s prolific collection of mega hits!

Starring: Chris Pratt (Jurassic World), Zoe Saldana (Star Trek), Dave Bautista (Riddick), Vin Diesel (The Last Witch Hunter), Bradley Cooper (American Sniper), Michael Rooker (Slither), Karen Gillan (Doctor Who), Glenn Close (Mars Attacks!).

“Well he don’t know talkin’ good like me and you, so his vocabulistics is limited to “I” and “am” and “Groot,” exclusively in that order.”

Now this awesome tale, tells the story of how an intergalactic thief, (and the only human traveling in outer space), Peter Quill (Chris Pratt steals a rare precious orb for a privateer who intends to sell it… The only thing is that, ‘Ronan: The Accuser’ (Lee Pace), who also happens to be working for a secret benefactor, (who has a dark desire to acquire it,) also is trying to get it as well!

During this time, Peter ends up being imprisoned with, ‘Rocket Raccoon’ (Bradley Cooper), Groot (Vin Diesel), (Both of whom had helped get Peter arrested on Nova Prime,) Gamora (Zoe Saldana) & Drax: The Destroyer (Dave Bautista)…  Initially they escape with the intention of selling the orb.

The Guardians Of The Galaxy… Their first mission… Escape from prison!

But when they find out what the orb is, and with the impending danger to the Nova Empire, they make themselves ‘The Guardians Of The Galaxy’, and decide to deliver the orb to the heart of the Nova Empire, and stop Ronan: The Accuser before he can deliver it to his master!

Now I will be honest and say that when I first heard of this movie I had not held out much hope for it… Don’t get me wrong, I knew it would be good, I just didn’t know how good! I mean everything about this movie was so well done, that I can totally see why this became one of the highest grossing movies of 2014!
