Guardians of the Galaxy Movie Review

Title: Guardians of the Galaxy

Year: 2014

Time: 2hrs & 2min

Rating: 4.5/5

So after work one day I talked my mom into going to see this movie with me since I'd heard great things about it from all of my friends. Even the woman we bought the tickets from said it was the best movie playing at the time. That was all it really took for my mom to finally agree to go see it with me.
Quin, or Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), is taken from Earth after his mother died when he was young and was supposed to be taken to his father and yet the mercenaries had another idea. Now he is a thief who steals important artifacts to sell to the highest bidder. One such artifact is desired by another, Ronan (Lee Pace), who sends men to retrieve the orb.
When his men fail he sends his master Thanos's (Josh Brolin) daughter Gamora (Zoe Saldana) to get the orb from Quin only to be attacked by bounty hunters Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel). In an attempt to get the reward on Quin's head they start a fight that leads them all to be arrested and thrown in jail. There they meet Drax (Dave Bautista) who almost kills Gamora only to decide that he needs her alive in order to draw Ronan to the prison. He needs her alive in order to kill Ronan who killed his wife and child.
Groot and Rocket manage to find a way to break all of them out of prison and so their journey on Quin's ship begins. They travel to see Gamora's buyer in order to find out why the orb was so important. The Collector (Benicio Del Toro) tells them what is inside the orb and they all realize that the thing must never fall into Ronan's hands if they wanted the galaxy to survive.
Unfortunately Drax send word to Ronan and a fight breaks out in which Gamora and Quin are captured by Yondu Udonta (Michael Rooker) who was the one to put the bounty on Quin's head. Instead of killing Quin they decided to go after Ronan, who had taken the orb, and save a planet.
A huge battle begins and  a lot of people die...Do the Guardians survive? Does Ronan destroy the planet and take over the universe? Who is Quin's real father?
Well unfortunately you don't find out the answer to the last question, which stinks, but it is still a great movie and you can't help but love Rocket! Everyone must see this movie!
