Wow, this film blew me away! This film definitely lived up to the two-year hype and proved to be one of Marvel's greatest accomplishments. The Guardians have excellent chemistry, most notably Dave Bautista, who gave a hilarious performance as Drax the Destroyer.
It was incredible to see some of my favorite comic book characters on the big screen for the first time. Plus, more groundwork has been laid for the film adaptation of one of Marvel's biggest storylines. It's safe to say I loved this film.
This was the best movie Marvel has done since The Avengers. It was everything I wanted and more. The storyline was gripping and did a good job of opening up Marvel's Cosmic Universe. I also loved how it worked as a standalone film while it laid the groundwork for future story lines in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The characters were great and the actors shared an amazing amount of chemistry together. Rocket Raccoon and Groot were the standout characters of the film, bringing a lot of heart to the movie. Dave Bautista stole the show as Drax the Destroyer, generating some of the biggest laughs in the movie. This was an excellent film that I can't wait to see more of in the future. Plus, I will admit that I found Gamora to be quite attractive for a green-skinned character.
