So I realize I'm a little late to the party, but I finally saw the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie last weekend and it was awesome. First off, these movies are a lot of fun but you need to know what you're signing up for. As a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they fit right into the timeline of our favorite Marvel heroes. (They'll be included in the next Avengers movie this spring!) This team is just a lesser known name than its Marvel counterparts like Iron Man or Captain America. From the slapstick humor to the action sequences, this movie delivered like the first in its series. I have to tip my hat to the casting in this film. They picked the perfect person to play each role and for me that makes such a difference.
A movie can legitimately go from being "good" to "great" with the right cast. While this movie isn't a deep thinker, I feel like any fan of superheroes, action, Sci-fi and talking Raccoons will love this movie.
I give it a solid 7 of 10.
