Guardians of the Galaxy Movie Review
This movie isn’t a “boy” movie or a Marvel only fan movie. This movie is great for everyone! When Director James Gunn put this cast together, he did it with thought and perfection. The chemistry is right on. Chris Pratt’s comedic timing is brilliant, yet all of the characters are hilarious. Each one bringing something that everyone can relate, and I really love the girl power Zoe brings to her character. A message extremely important to Zoe for she wants to make sure that all women are portrayed as strong characters. Yes, girls can do anything! A group of misfits that make you laugh, keep you entertained, have that element of excitement and a lot of heart. And visually! Being that a lot of the set was real, not green screen, you will find that it is just visually amazing. All the things that make a great movie. I am not the only one that feels this way. Take a look at what others think!
I already bought my tickets and will be taking my family today! I am excited to see this movie be the huge success that it deserves to be, and I hope you come back and tell me what you loved about the film!
