I think i would have liked this better if the science behind the film was a bit more accurate. Even though i came in knowing that the facts were fake. That being said i still enjoyed it. I didn't get bored-there was enough action scenes. And the special effects, especially near the end where Lucy was 'time traveling' was cool. I just wish that the film didn't end so suddenly...and confusingly. I just didn't get-and still don't, why they went the 'entered-a-higher-plane-of-exsitance' route when what really happened was she turned herself into- what can only be described as a giant black computer, that can link to every other computer or thing with a microchip in it. But it made me think about philosophical and science related matters which is rare for a movie that isn't a documentary so i guess it still has some sort of merit to it.
Am i giving this only 4 and a half stars and not 5, because i wanted a better second credits scene? Yes, yes i am.
Everything else was brilliant. the plot was interesting, the action was well choreographed, and you bet the dialogue was hilarious. The dialogue probably is my favorite part of the movie but you can't have that without the characters. Each and everyone of the actors did a great job and it felt that they really captured the essence of their character and found myself caring for quite a lot of them, Star-Lord, Gamora and Nebula, Rocket, even Yondu (Peter Quill's adopted alien father) and Drax.It's also amazing how much you can get attached to a giant living tree which can only speak three words "I am Groot". Groot was the centric character for one one of my three favorite scenes which is when he released the orbs of light and protected the other guardians just before he dies. The others being when Yondu uses his voice activated arrow to kill a squadron and the ending where the Guardians used the Infinity stone to stop Ronan, after Star-Lord challenged him to a dance-off (of all things). Tying everything together was the music a blend of 70s and 80s hits made the film extra fun even if sometimes there was a large amount of lyrical dishonesty. But i didn't really care since what was happening on screen and the music itself was so awesome.
I wanted the second credits scene to be more relevant to the future movies such as Ant Man or even Age of Ultron but since that's my only complaint i am not dwelling on it too much the first defiantly made up for it anyway. Great film anyway and worth watching.
Peter Quill: What should we do next? Something good? Something bad? Bit of both? Gamora: We'll follow you lead, Star-Lord. Peter Quill: A bit of both!
//200th movie review.//
Where do i start?!?! This movie had me hooked right from the beginning. Where you see Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston break into S.H.I.E.L.D and steal the Tesseract followed by the title screen in witch the Tesseract come into focus towards the audience. By that moment i knew that this film was not only going to be action packed but also have great visual effects. It did have great visual effects from showing the usage of the illusions that Loki cast, too Tony Stark's Iron Man suit and the introduction to the helicarrier, all the way to the climax of the film with the alien invasion and the Assault ships. The CGI was used really well and it seemed as though the assault ships were like a living organism and was 'Transformers'-esqu The 'cloaking' of the helicarrier was also visually stunning. This coupled with the camera shots made the the major battle awesome.
The characters were great too. All the actors and actresses did a great job at portraying there character and made you feel connected to them. It was cool that they had characters such as Black widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) who didn't really have supernatural powers or genius intelligence yet could stand on there own and still be badass in there own right. Another thing what really stood out for me was the humor both physical and dialog was used. Such as when the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) beats and then says "Puny God", and when Loki says "Im listening" in reference to Thor as Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) swept away said character. Joss Wheldon does a brillent job at making all the aspects fit together and this isn't only a great superhero movie but a great movie in general.

So i have finally seen it. The End.The end of my childhood or should i say my teenage years since the first one came out when i was 11? 0.o . I think i'm still in shock. I want to see it again. Because i already know that there are bits that i have forgotten. It was a great finish to the series. They only seemed to miss out minor details. Supprienly i didn't cry. i was fully expecting too since i cried when i was reading the books and as you know this was the last movie...but i didn't. i think that comes down too the fact that i didn't see it at the midnight release (i wanted to but they couldn't get the sound working with the 3D). The closest that i got to crying was when Harry used the reserrection stone it was very well done and it was like how i imagined it to be. At this part my eyes got teary. One of the parts which i wished they would put in was the lecture Harry gave Voldemort about Snape being Dumbledores even a simple statement would serfice but no...Anyway overall an excellent end to the movie series the defines a generation. Can't wait for Pottermore.
