Produced by Marvel Comics and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, audiences had to know that GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (2014) starring Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper was going to be nothing short of a blockbuster. With a sequel already in the works along with countless merchandise opportunities, I guarantee that we have not seen the last of these rag-tag comic book heroes. An unlikely grouping that will appeal to audiences around the world.

After his abduction from earth circa 1988, young Peter Quill grows up under the savage tutelage of the Ravagers, a band of misfit space pirates who instill their own brand of life-lessons in the impressionable youth. When Ronan, a villain whose evil nature is only exceeded by his powerful army, realizes that Peter had stolen an orb that he must have on his quest for absolute dominance—our unlikely heroes find themselves battling for their lives in an attempt to stop Ronan in his quest to ultimately destroy the entire universe.

I think it’s noteworthy that even though GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY was rated as PG-13, nearly all of the figurines and accompanying toys were geared for 3 to 12 year old boys. And although it can be an extremely violent movie for young children, their ambivalence toward action figure based movies is now becoming sadly very commonplace.

As teenage and adult entertainment, this movie is definitely a winner. Amazingly, the 70’s soundtrack is the perfect background, and ‘Hooked on a Feeling’ is still bouncing around in my head. Surprisingly, I too want a Groot figurine, and although he only utters two individual lines in the entire movie—he managed to steal my heart.

Directed by James Gunn, Rated PG-13, 121 Minutes, Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi, ****4 stars out of 5. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY will be as entertaining ten years from now as it was today.
