There are entirely too many comic book and superhero movies made these days from my seat. But Marvel's GOTG was totally worth making.
This cleaned up big time at the box office its opening weekend, and it was well deserved. This is a break from the usual comic book movie in many regards and is a fun afternoon at the movies. The biggest thing is, this doesn't take itself too seriously, and that lets us all breathe. And know that were here to have fun, and not save mankind from brutal extinction in the modern day.
This overall story is simply too complicated to explain effectively here, but this is it in a nutshell. This group of misfits, both human and non-human are wandering all over the universe. They all come from different backgrounds and somehow are thrown together to form an unlikely alliance to save the Galaxy and numerous lives. There is this thing called the "infinity stone" that could mean the destruction of millions of lives if in the wrong hands. Their job is to make sure that it goes into the right hands.
