MOVIE REVIEW MOVIEREVIEW 025 GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY AUTHOR: Leah Miller, Accounting Department Warning: spoiler alert to those who have not yet seen the movie! Out of all the Marvel movies, Guardians of the Galaxy may very well be one of the best. Packed with action, comedy and even a little romance, this movie will take you on a galactic adventure! The movie begins with a sad start for a character named Peter Quill (a.k.a. Star-Lord) whose mother dies when he is a child. Immediately following his mother’s death, Quill runs to the parking lot of the hospital saddened and frustrated, only to be abducted by Yondu and his crew (talk about a bad day)! Yondu and his crew end up raising Quill. About 20 years later, Quill obtains an “infinity stone,” which happens to holds amazing magic powers. He takes the stone to the planet Xandar in the Nova Empire to sell it. There, Quill gets into a fight with Gamora, Groot, and Rocket the Raccoon who also want the orb, which lands them all in prison. They all end up deciding to join forces and form the Guardians of the Galaxy team. Unfortunately, bad guy Ronan the Accuser wants to use the orb to destroy the planet Xandar. Ronan is quite powerful, so to defeat him, the Nova Empire (which had originally imprisoned the Guardians of the Galaxy team) unites with the Guardians. In addition to an exciting plot, this movie also has great music, so it has something for everyone. Take the family ݥѠ
