The Guardians embark on a life or death mission to protect Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and defend the universe which is the best out of all three hands down. The team is led by Peter Quill (Chris Pratt). The story, written and directed by James Gunn, is non-stop action with touching flashbacks of Rocket’s younger years and Pete’s childhood rearing is intertwined fantastically which brought us up to date.
Perhaps over time there might be a new set of Guardians but this group will move on to other projects. You might be shocked to see a horror scene which I did not expect but it’s exciting to see Marvel back on track. Disney studios prevail once again and Marvel climbs back up the ladder. The special effects department know their stuff and as always there is a cool soundtrack. The usual suspects come back to the grand exit (Zoe Saldana, Will Poulter, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel’s Baby Groot, Dave Bautista with Sean Gunn as Kraglin. There is something for everybody in the final saga; enough to make you laugh, cry and appreciate solid relationships. Stay tuned for two snippets as the credits roll. 4 1/2 stars.
The film opens May 5 and is distributed by Walt Disney with Kevin Feige producing. If you have the option of experiencing in 3-D jump on it.
