Guardians Of The Galaxy - 星際異攻隊 - 銀河守護隊
Guardians Of The Galaxy (星際異攻隊) is an 2014 film. The movie stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista. The film also features the voices of Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper.
The movie starts in 1988 with Peter Quill as a child being asked to spend time with his dying mother on his birthday. When the boy runs outside, he's whisked away by a spaceship. Fast forward 26 years, enter an adult Peter Quill as Star-Lord, a master thief looking for the orb that powered the planet Morag. In this part of the galaxy, there are two "alien" races of the Xandar and the Kree. The two races have a truce, but some Kree would still like to destroy Xandar. We find out a rogue Kree warrior named Ronan is after the orb so he can exchange it for a favor with Thanos. The plot thickens when all five characters fight each other for the orb on Xander but are all captured and sent to an prison. There, they form a group based on selling the orb to The Collector.
Whew! That's just the beginning plot. The rest of the story goes long and funny and lots of action. By far one of the better films to really embrace music as it sets up the mood and scenes. The mix tape that Peter's mom gives him is a major factor in the film and a major seller even today.
This is a very well made film. James Gunn has outdone himself here. I've seen his other indie films and they were, indie films. This is a step up to the big time. With this movie, Chris Pratt has also fast tracked himself into the A-List realm, as the Peter Quill character seems a perfect fit for him. Without Chris Pratt, the movie falls very flat.
Go watch it, its funny, lots of action, and comes with a story you can invest and get lots out of.
