Jan (Age 12): ★★★★

"Pretty good film. My opinion on the characters; Satr-Lord was great, Gamora was strange, Rocket was hilarious, Groot was cool, Drax was weird (in a good way), Ronan was mediocre, Nebula was okay, Yandu was good, and the Collector was kinda strange... I loved most of the characters, the Rocket and Groot combo was awesome!!

I think it was a bit weird when the Collector's assistant held the infinity stone and got blown to pieces, but when a normal guy, a green person, a big guy who spent too much time at the gym, and a raccoon, somehow survive the infinity stone.

Overall, a pretty good movie. I'm watching Avengers: Age of Ultron next"

There's plenty more sci-fi action in the MCU. Whilst for more tough talking animals, take a look at Kung Fu Panda.
