Guardians of the Galaxy is ranked as the best film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe by many. However, nearly no one knew about any of the characters of the movie, and nobody cared. Everyone was waiting for other major movies like Avengers: Age of Ultron. It received a mind-blowing 91% on RottenTomatoes.com, and an 8.1 on IMDb, on par with The Avengers. GotG was a truly magical movie for all.
The movie continues to amaze us all even today. However, it just did something you would never have imagined it would do.
Sawyer is a little boy of age 4, who has a neurological condition called 'dyspraxia', which causes motor (movement) and speech problems and difficulties.
Until a year ago, Sawyer could only speak 3 words. That is, until he went to see Guardians of the Galaxy. According to his parents, the movie affected him so much that he actually said something he never had before! More specifically, a dialogue from the movie (Hint: It is a fan favourite dialogue). Any guesses on what line from the movie he spoke?
That's right. Probably the most iconic line of the movie, said by the best character of the movie. "I am Groot". Three simple words, yet it changed his whole life. While it may not seem a huge feat to some, for someone who hasn't been able to more than 2-3 words in his life, I think it's a huge accomplishment!
Hats off to James Gunn and everyone involved in making a movie like Guardians of the Galaxy, and I hope Sawyer gets better soon!
