    Groot's "big" scene was really well done. Other than that scene, I didn't really have a connection to the character.

    He's a much better actor than people give him credit for. Plus he seems like a really nice guy.

    I loved Groot, he's just such a sweet optimist. My friends say I am like Groot. I'm kind of lanky and I'm always happy just to wake up in the morning lol. Oh sorry what I meant to say is my friends think...

    "I am Groot"

    I love the idea that when it comes to pass despite being the lead of a successful franchise (THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS) Vin's most loved characters may end up being two he voiced in The Iron Giant and Groot.

    Best character in the movie hands down. I have to hand it to James Gunn in making him so memorable. And big proops to Vin Diesel for his voicework and mocap.

    It was a great delivery, got a little misty in the theater when he said it. When my wife ( who didn't want to see the movie at all) got out she said " I can't believe toretto made me cry!"

    Vin was great, him and the effects team really breathed life into the character.
    And he seems to have really embraced the role, what with showing up to the red carpet in stilts and a t-shirt that says "I am Groot":woot:

    He didn't do the mo-cap, wasn't cast early enough. As I mentioned in the Rocket thread, I wonder if him and Cooper will do the mo-cap in the sequel or stick to the same method.

    Yes, he mentioned in various interviews that he only lent his voice to the character and other people played Groot or Rocket.

    Apart from Captain America and all of his related characters, Groot is the oldest character Marvel has put onto the big screen.
