‘I am Groot’ REVIEW: Cuteness Overload
There is something incredibly charming and endearing about Marvel Studios’ most recent release on Disney+, as it brings a fan-favorite Marvel hero to audiences in a way that they’ve never seen before, and it is incredibly adorable; this is our I Am Groot Review.
Throughout the vast history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there have been films and streaming series that have constituted some of the most intense action sequences that film history has ever seen, perfectly embodying the brilliance of the source material.
A film franchise that has fully embraced the concept of superheroes, and the age-old battle between good and evil, corruption and innocence, and right or wrong, in a way that has been to this generation what great myths of conquest were to past ones.
But in recent years, the MCU has become something so much bigger than just herculean tales of battles won and lost, it has been the development of an entire world that functions as a mirror to our own; one that presents the human experience, in the most extraordinary circumstances.
That is where I Am Groot becomes such a beautiful, charming, and endearing story of that Marvel evolution, and how the stories of the MCU have achieved the capability of being anything we want them to be; even a young, childlike alien discovering the fantastically unknown of the cosmos.
The series is brilliant because it truly does embrace the mind and mannerisms of a young child, and takes the iconic, fan-favorite, Guardian of the Galaxy and puts him in situations where he has to learn, experience, and experiment with the universe around him.
If you have ever had children, or a niece or nephew, then I Am Groot feels so incredibly real to you; as the creative team behind this series captured so perfectly the good, bad, cute, and frustrating of a young toddler at odds with his own safety, and enamored with the world around them.
This is Marvel’s cutest series yet, and it is further proof that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is just coming into its own, not as a journey for heroism, but as a microcosm of the world that we inhabit, and the one we one day hope to.
