Trivia

Robert Firth plays Dr. Fitzgibbon, the attending physician in the opening scenes of the film. His character is named after a personal friend of James Gunn. There's a Fitzgibbon in every one of his films. Unfortunately for Firth, his scenes were cut from the final edit. He plays yet another physician, Dr. Stillwell, in the Oliver Stone thriller Snowden (2016). Fortunately for Firth, in that film, portions of his performance still remain. See more »

Goofs

(at around 59 mins) While visiting the Collector, he places the orb on a device that opens the orb. When Carina grabs the Infinity stone floating inside the orb she is clearly holding the stone before she instantly explodes and does major damage to the Collector's room and collection. Because she is not strong enough to hold the stone, her hand never moves the stone. As she explodes, several camera angles of the scene show the stone remains in the orb's force field the whole time. So the stone never needs to be placed back into the orb. See more »

I AM GROOT
8 August 2020 | by reddiemurf81See all my reviews

The MCU is putting out a movie about these 5 misfits in space called the GOTG? Eh,, I'll go see it. I've liked everything else they've done. Well,,, I do believe the gamble that MCU rolled the dice on has paid off more than they could've imagined!! Even RDJ said this movie was the best thing to have come out of the MCU at that point, and we're not going to argue with Ironman. So take a journey with Starlord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot!

Go watch it!!
