Guardians of the Galaxy

Thursday, September 4, 2014                 by Cole Cox

Last night, September 3, I saw Guardians of the Galaxy. I could not believe that the movie came out a month ago, and the theater was still pretty full. This is its 5th week at the theater and the movie has made $281.2 million dollars total. It is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and for some language. The movie is so popular that before it was even released, in July, they had all sorts of action figures, legos,  and a lot of other stuff in toy stores. Anyway, the movie is about Peter Quill, or as he calls himself, Star-lord. Peter finds a mysterious orb that has the power to destroy the world. Peter, a talking Raccoon named Rocket, an assassin named Gamora and a talking and walking tree named Groot are all captured by the nova corps. There they meet Drax, who wants revenge on the evil Ronan. The 5 escape prison and must stop Ronan from destroying the planet Zandar. It even had a Stan Lee cameo. It was directed by James Gunn. It stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, and Lee Pace. I would give it 5 stars. My favorite guardian is Rocket Racoon. He is the funniest character. The lego sets they made for the movie are horrible! But if you like Marvel, you will like Guardians of the Galaxy.
