The Guardian of the Galaxy (GotG) was loved by many and I am currently one of them. Catch the movie on Friday night and already falling in love with the direction Marvel is heading. Nothing so serious like the previous Marvel movie this you will definitely fall in love with although you are not an avid comic fan with any knowledge towards GotG.

In GotG, we follow the story of young human Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) who was kidnapped and raise as a thief with a nickname of Star-Lord. Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel) together with Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Drax (Dave Baustista) all tag to kill Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) 


Bunch of different character get taken into a roller coaster ride which makes you wonder will they last but they do and their friendship grew in this 121 minute movie. Lots of good vibes in the movie and also some serious action happening throughout the whole movie. You will be taken in a roller coaster ride of laughter, happiness, sadness and also many moment of WTF?  Most of the time, you are too busy admiring the CG and also the skills that is shown in the movie with a twist of humour. 


Although the story line is easy to understand for non Marvel fans, there are still some part where you will be wondering who is the characters. As mention, Thanos and also The Collector makes you wonder who they are if you do not know a little about the Marvel Universe. Besides that, I feel that certain part could have been polished further as for example a little more about the background story of at the very least Star-Lord, seems like he was abducted and grew up to be a fine thief. 


I can personally promise you that, you will definitely have the best time watching this show. You will laugh, sad, surprise and also want to know more. And then you will smile silly like me when you see Thanos and reference to some characters in the Marvel universe. It is beautifully weird as I smile almost throughout the whole movie. Oh and like all Marvel movie, please stay for the end credit scene. Thank you very much.

TL;DR: I....... hooked on a feeling! Star-Lord with 4 lost criminals try to save the world and be cronwed the Guardian of Galaxy!
