Mantis and Drax want to get the perfect gift for Peter “Starlord” Quill. They decide that Peter’s boyhood hero, Kevin Bacon would fit the ticket. So Mantis and Drax head to earth to kidnap the legendary Kevin Bacon! What could go wrong?
Thoughts (beware of spoilers)…
I love that Marvel is putting together these one hour specials. The Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special is a great follow up to the Halloween Werewolf by Night Special. It’s also cool that Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Sean Gunn, and Michael Rooker reprise their roles. Drax is always a hoot, and Kevin Bacon running for his life from aliens is more fun than it should be.
Of course like all good Holiday Specials, this one will leave you will a smile and warm feelings.
The Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special earns 4 of 5 stars.
