Upon stealing a highly sought-after mysterious orb, intergalactic everyman Peter Quill—or, Star-Lord as he insists on being called—teams up with other well-meaning mercenaries to form a ragtag merry band, The Guardians of the Galaxy. With a strongman, a human, a sexy alien, and a talking raccoon and his best friend/talking tree, The Guardians try to keep the orb out of the hands of the bad aliens, and in the laps of the highest paying good aliens. Chris Pratt, everyone’s favorite goof-turned-hunk, and the breakout star of the summer, Groot the talking tree—voiced by Vin Diesel—are just two of the myriad reasons to see Marvel’s latest, and undeniably, most fun film to date. It’s hokey, romantic, funny, referential, and totally worth a view.
