I’ve been pretty excited to see this movie since I first saw the trailer. I knew it would be pretty good and funny but man, did they blow my expectations out of the water! Not only was there a good story, the movie was funny and there were a couple of times when it was just completely heart wrenching and I love when movies can just pull you in and make you empathize with all the characters. Hell one of the main characters is a walking tree with the IQ of a goldfish and he was freakin awesome. I loved him. Even though all he said through the movie is “I am Groot”(To the right you will see his “Did I do good” face!) he was an awesome piece. He was the muscle for Rocket but at the same time he was a softie. Like toward the end, when he incased everyone to save them, he surrounded his friends and shut them off from the impending doom going on around them and lit it up with those… idk like little firefly things and it was just one of those scenes that gave you the feels and that’s hard to do with a character like a walking tree.
Drax looked pretty awesome. I loved how they played him. He was a brute very serious but still made it humorous. Like he takes everything so literal and Rocket and Star lord keep poking at him. One of my favorite quotes was when they were making fun of Drax using metaphors he didn’t understand and Rocket said “Don’t bother metaphors go right over his head” and Drax replies, “Nothing goes over my head!… My reflexes are too fast, I would catch it.
Also, the end of the movie (don’t worry, no spoilers) was amazing! The graphics were great, the story made sense, and I was drawn to the edge of my seat wanting more. I loved the little dance Star Lord did in front of Ronan lol
Ronan says, “What are you doing?” Star Lord replied, “I’m distracting you, you big turd blossom!” (That is the turd blossom to the left) I love Star Lord haha. Also, one thing I didn’t expect thought was I thought the Collector would have had a little bit more screen time than he did. I mean, what they had done worked just fine I just thought he was going to be a much bigger part I guess… he’s just so strange I would have liked to know a little more about him.
Anyway, moral of this review….. GO SEE THE MOVIE! ^.^ I can’t wait to go see it again. They did an awesome job. Thanks again for checking out my review. Till next time, stay sweet! –GlycoNerd
