After experiencing his mother’s death, Peter Quill is abducted by space pirates and grows up traveling through space committing petty crime. One day he steals an orb for a client, but begins to find out there is more to this orb than he was led to believe. Set with a rag tag team of thieves, Peter plans on getting rid of the orb before it can fall into the wrong hands.
While I’m not huge on comics, the main reason for seeing this film was the cast. I love Chris Pratt and Karen Gillan, and they both did an awesome job in this movie, along with Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper. I also enjoyed the script, because, to me, the trailers made the movie seem like a comedic piece (which it was), but the writers didn’t lose certain serious elements of the story which helped shaped how certain characters turned out.
My one complaint about the movie, though, was I felt the relationship between Peter and Gamora moved too fast. So fast that it was a little unbelievable. I get that it’s a movie and that you only have a certain amount of time to build on these relationships, but I think there could have been some other elements to make their attraction more realistic.
