Guardians of the Galaxy
In this epic space adventure, Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" takes us deep into space, where adventurer Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) finds himself being hunted after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan (Lee Pace), a powerful villain with plans that threaten the entire universe.
In order to evade him, Quill forges an uneasy truce with a quartet of misfits — Rocket the raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the danger it poses to the cosmos, he rallies his disparate rivals for a last, desperate stand against the evils of the universe.
Fighting and intense, action-packed scenes give this movie its PG-13 rating, and might be too scary for younger kids.
