Guardians of the Galaxy

The Marvel universe sees the never-ending war beyond good and evil from the pages of the comic books, TV shows, big-screen movies, and tons of merchandises. Whether if it's SpiderMan, The Fantastic Four, the X-MEN, or The Avengers, rest assured that these comic book heroes inspire great admiration and entertain us with the wow factor these guys deserve. At last, there's a new addition to the Marvel universe of films and this time, it's a bit different from what we expect from the world of Marvel.

Guardians of the Galaxy
Yes, this is kinda new to us but what you've seen here is called Guardians of the Galaxy. A ragtag group of renegades form alliance and their mission is to defend the galaxy from evildoers that stand in their way. The action-packed film stars Chris Prattas Peter "Star-Lord" Quill, Zoe Saldana as the femme fatale Gamora, former WWE superstar Dave Batista plays the muscular Drax the Destroyer, The Fast and the Furious' Vin Diesel lends his voice as Groot, and Bradley Cooper lends his voice as the very unique but very awesome racoon dude named Rocket.

This movie is all about adventurer Peter Quill, who was the subject of a bounty hunt after he stole a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, an evildoer who wants to take over the galaxy, as any supervillains do. To stop Rowan, he forms alliances with a band of bandits; Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot, right until Peter discovers the true power of the orb he stole. After the discovery, the so-called Guardians of the Galaxy will risk everything to save the universe from the brink of evil.

Yes, we know. This isn't more of a superhero flick like most Marvel movies do but Guardians of the Galaxy, not to be confused with any stuff that has the words "guardians" on it, has a unique blend of action, adventure, and some humor to keep moviegoers longing for more. A team-up of one human being, a muscular megalomaniac, a feisty assassin, a tree-ish humanoid, and a racoon? Looks weird but sounds pretty cool to us to see such a unique teamup and I believe that this is even more unique than the Avengers. Unlike the Avengers, the Guardians is all about massive firepower and they're armed to the teeth to save the day. Come on, you know you want to but if there's a downside, it's the storyline. Although the storyline delves deep to the origin of the heroes, there's some lacking and do you expect Star-Lord to wear his signature helmet? I don't think so and that's a bit rude for Marvel fans too many.

Despite that, Guardians of the Galaxy is one sure thing why this film deserves to be part of the Marvel universe and hey, every Marvel fan knows all this ever since it made a special appearance in one episode of Disney XD's Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers Assemble, and Hulk and the Agents of SMASH. Guardians may not be one of the best to watch in the summer but if you're looking for some Marvel thrills, nerd lookie right here!
