This past weekend I got to see the new marvel film, At first I was a bit skeptical because some films don’t live up to the hype that they are surrounded by, but this film was funny, intelligent and kept me engaged the entire time. Sure there were a few cheesy bits, but what film doesn’t have those and some of those cheesy sections ended up being hilarious.Therefore I highly recommend it especially to those marvel lovers out there.
As the film went on, so did my love for the various characters especially Groot, who’s only word’s were: “I am Groot.” (Vin Diesel) And whom Rocket (Raccoon) was able to translate perfectly with added commentary. Groot was an interesting character as although his words may have been limited his actions and abilities within the film continuously expanded and surprised the audience. Additionally he did what I call the Groot Smash! And gave a little smile at the end! Little Groot was also super adorable when he danced, and definitely had the cute factor on point.
Rocket was another funny little character, and Bradley Cooper‘s voice was perfect and gave him a lot of character. Other than making you want Rocket as a pet, he was one of the more resourceful characters in the film, being able to make weapons and formulate plans on the spot, not all of which were perfect but did somehow work. He also was extremely funny, sarcastic at times, and for fun made people get things that he didn’t need but thought would be funny.
Then you had the main character’s love interest Gamora, played by the beautiful Zoe Saldana, who was great at putting people in their place, and extremely a talented as weapon, assassin and had an interesting back story.
Then there was Mr. Muscle man, Drax the Destroyer played by Dave Batista a killer turned friend. His comments and inability to understand caused me to laugh a lot, and I wanted him to succeed.
Finally there was the main character, Starlord played by Chris Pratt. He kept surprising me from his back story, to his humor, and even his playboy attitude, all of it made him a fun, happy go lucky character. Still I really want to know who his dad is!
Anyways I recommend it!
And remember to watch it till after the credits!
