Guardians of the Galaxy

I am groot
The superhero universe just got a new galaxy

Can I recommend a sci-fi superhero movie featuring a lunkhead, a green girl, an armed raccoon and a talking tree in space? Suprisingly, yes.

After a decade of mostly dark superhero flicks, everything about Guardians seems fresh in the superhero world: it covers the origin story in less than 5 minutes, it's not afraid of somewhat-zany humor, and its universe is crisp and dazzling. 

Chris Pratt is the modern-day Bruce Willis —a convincing  hero who can balance the action with a wink. He never oversteps either. And the film's light touch, reminiscent of the first and third Indiana Jones films, makes for a thrilling summer flick. 

Simply put: The film of the summer.
Award potential: Nope. 
The ten buck review: Worth ten bucks.
