1988, the mother of the young Peter Quills dies of cancer. Just before she died, she suggests that Peter’s father is a „being out of the light“ and presents him with a gift. Peter then frantically runs out of the hospital and is kidnapped by a spacecraft.
26 years after this incident, Peter has become a Ravager, who calls himself star Lord, who is a member of the ranks of the extraterrestrial Yondu Udonta. He has not been able to keep much of life on Earth. However, he still has the gift of his mother, which he has not yet opened and an old Walkman playing a cassette with old pop songs that his mother has put together. At some point he got an order from Yondu to get a metal ball (the so-called Orb) from a ruined city. But when he has the bullet, he is attacked by Korath and his men, who serve an Ronan. Peter, however, can escape. Instead of flying to Yondu, he wants to sell the orb himself to the fence, who commissioned this salvage. To avenge himself, Yondu puts a high bounty on Peter’s capture.Peter does not know that Ronan is the accuser behind the name Ronan, a member of the people of the Kree and a great enemy of the planet Xandars. Xandar is an advanced world that negotiated a peace treaty with Kree some time ago. This is ignored by Ronan, however, since he, his father and his grandfather lost in the war against Xandar. To eliminate his Rachelust, he has made an agreement with Thanos: when he procures the Orb, Thanos destroys Xandar. When he notices that Korath fails to procure the Orb on his mission, he sends Gamora to get the orb.
Almost at the same time, Peter is in the shop of the Hehlers on Xandar. But when he hears that Ronan wants this orb too, he breaks the business and shoves Peter out of his shop. Outside, he is attacked by Gamora, who wants to have the orb and by the Bounty Hunters Rocket and Groot, who want to collect the bounty for Peter. Towards the end, all of them are captured by the Nova Corps and put into a prison in space, the KYLN. There, Gamora, who enjoys a bad reputation because of her connection to Thanos and Ronan, is threatened by several fellow prisoners with death, including Drax, who lost his family to Ronan and swore revenge for him. Peter, who likes Gamora, frees her from this situation and proposes to sell the orb to a prospect that she knows and divide the sum of the three… eh four.Peter, Rocket, Groot and Gamora can escape from prison together with Drax. They fly with Peter’s ship to Knowhere, a column inhabited by criminals and meet there with Gamoras customers, the collector Taneleer Tivan. This tells them that the orb is in fact a container for the Infinity Stone, one of 6 stones of this kind that have absorbed the concentrated energy of the cosmos before the Big Bang and can only be controlled by a few beings. A servant of Tivan tries to increase the stone, but destroys herself and the collector’s collection. So that the stone does not fall into the wrong hands, Gamora decides to leave the stone to the Nova Corps. Peter agrees with him.
Drax, however, when he was drunk, he sparked Ronan to challenge him to a fight. Ronan, who now has to look for the Orb and Gamora in person, immediately rushes into the colony Knowhere. At the same time, Yondu has followed the track of Peter and is also on his way to Knowhere. Drax attacks Ronan directly, but is far inferior to him and is left behind by his enemy to die. However, he finds it in Groot, who then saves him. Gamora, assisted by Rocket and Peter, tries to reach Peter’s ship in a mine capsule. But it is pushed out into space. There, her capsule is destroyed by her sister Nebula. While Ronan disappears with the Orb, Peter Gamora, who hangs helplessly in the vacuum, saves his life. However, they are picked up by Yondu and brought on board. There, Peter can persuade him to stop Ronan from his plan, as he could extinguish the galaxy with the power of the stone. Together with Rocket, Groot and Drax, Peter and Gamora ally with the Ravagern and work out a plan to stop and kill Ronan.Ronan, however, canceled his trade with Thanos and now wants to destroy Xandar personally. Peter manages to warn the Nova Corps. The attack on Ronan’s ship succeeds, thanks to the Nova Corps and Peter, Gamora, Drax and Groot can penetrate into the ship and beat themselves to Ronan. But the Infinity Stone made it virtually invincible. Rocket rushes to help his friends and flies with his glider directly into Ronan’s ship. The burglary, however, destroys important systems and the ship crashes onto the surface of Xandars. Groot sacrifices himself to save his friends. He says goodbye to the words „We are Groot“. Through the Infinity Stone, Ronan also overhangs the crash. When Ronan wants to destroy Xandar, Peter distracts him and rocket and Drax can remove the stone from Ronan’s hammer. Peter prevents him from getting the stone back and has to take him in his own hands. Through this, he is driven by the destructive energies and Gamora and the others connect with him, so that the intensity of the energy that Peter is exposed to is tempered. So Peter can use the stone to kill Ronan.As a thank you for the rescue of Xandar, the ship is repaired by Peter. Rocket has even found a scion of Groot, which in the course of time will grow into a new version of Groot. It also turns out that Peter’s father is an extraterrestrial and Yondu had the task of bringing Peter to his father after the death of his mother, but broke the agreement. In the end Peter Gathers and opens the gift from his mother. The gift includes another cassette with old pop songs. He then breaks up with his new friends, who are now known as „Guardians of the Galaxy.“After the credits, you see the collector, who has to take a few proverbs from one of his collectibles, Howard the duck.
My conclusion: I already find it great because of Dave Batista, who was already in the WWE Super and as an actor I find him even better. I also find Groot so brilliant, but I have to cry at „We are Groot“. However, I also mean that they had an infinity stone, but can also deceive me. Gamora changes, thank God the angle of view, that would otherwise have come really dumb. Rocket is not a raccoon, but always something else, I find extremely awesome. For one of the action movies like, I find the movie top.
