Guardians of the Galaxy Movie Review

I knew my kids were dying to see the movie, but I thought it looked kind of silly with people, other life forms, and a talking raccoon.  I decided I needed to see the film first before letting my kids see it, so Hubbyman and I went.  Going in, I knew nothing about the comic book, so I cannot talk about how closely it follows that storyline.

After the seeing the film, I’m super excited to go back and see it a second time with the kids.  It was full of great special effects, the storyline was easy enough for a non-fan to follow, the fight scenes were good, and I love anything with great 80’s music.  The cheesy humor was fun to laugh at…there was just enough that it didn’t get annoying.

And honestly, I will watch pretty much anything with Vin Diesel…granted he is just the voice of Groot…but still…{swoon}!

Guardians of the Galaxy Review

“From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with thegalaxy‘s fate in the balance.” 

So…will I take the kids!  You betchya!  I have a 5yo and almost 10yo and they are going to love this movie.  If your kids have seen any of the other Marvel superhero movies, then they should be pretty safe with this one.  (Of course, you need to make your own decisions about your family or go see it first.)  There are fighting scenes, a little implied chemistry with the two main characters, and some “fun” phrases that the kids might pick up…but like I mentioned, if they’ve seen the other Marvel superhero movies then it shouldn’t be too intense for them.

Guardians of the Galaxy is rated PG-13 and is in theaters beginning 8/1/14!
