GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY – Blu-ray Review
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is destined to be Marvel’s fan movie of the year. We have kick-ass Gamora, a talking raccoon, and a dancing tree. What more could you ask for?
Brash space adventurer Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) 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. But when he discovers the orb’s true power and the cosmic threat it poses, Quill must rally his ragtag group to save the universe.
Our favorite guardians of the galaxy are now available for us to take home… in DVD form, that it. Guardians of the Galaxy is now available on DVD, Blu-ray, and digital download, so you can relive your favorite scenes as many times as you like. Incase you haven’t heard, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy follows Peter Quill aka Star Lord as he goes throughout the galaxy in search of “junk”. He stumbles upon an orb which is one of the infinity gems, which means it’s worth a lot, and people will do anything to get their hands on it. He then joins the rag tag crew of Gamora, Drax, Groot, and Rocket, and together they make The Guardians of the Galaxy!
This movie is pretty different than any other Marvel film. It’s campy, it’s fun, it has a talking raccoon, and it’s humor is a bit funnier than any other Marvel film I’ve seen. The characters are amazing. (My favorite is Gamora and Rocket.) James Gunn directed this film and after watching it for the first time, I hope he does more Marvel films. His direction style is amazing and to see how important this film was to him makes it all the better. And now that it’s on Blu-ray, we can appreciate this film even more. Everything from it’s special effects, to it’s costumes and makeup, Guardians looks spectacular in hi-def!
Guardians of the Galaxy offers something for the whole family! The action is almost nonstop and the humor never lets down. I’d recommend Guardians of the Galaxy to everyone who enjoys watching movies. Yep, I’m not being very selective with this review. I honestly think anybody could find something to love about this film.
