It’s an ok film but not great. 100% galaxy theme. The plot isn’t special.

It’s 1982. Overcome with obsessive thoughts about Ewoks, George Lucas teams up with John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd in order to write the next and final instalment of his film trilogy: Star Wars - Episode VI - Blues Brothers in Space. That's what this film feels like, but even more super awesome than that could possibly be.
   [Guardians of the Galaxy], directed by James Gunn and written by Gunn and Nicole Perlman, is the sleeper hit of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). It's a space-western-heist film with wallpaper drawn from memories of one's favourite '70s and '80s comic books and sci-fi fantasy films. The film made the "Guardians of the Galaxy" a thing, a trash-talking raccoon a reality, and the nom de guerre "Star Lord" know by all, far and wide. No longer would Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) saunter into a dusty nondescript cantina at the fringes of the galaxy in fruitless and desperate search of street cred to parley for a five credit discount on a half-reheated meal.
   Like [The Winter Soldier], this film helped to usher in a new kind of MCU film, a film that was aware of itself in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, that basked in that universe, and that showed us extraterrestrial civilizations with a fresh verisimilitude the likes audiences haven’t seen since probably the original [Star Wars].
   Furthermore, I enjoyed how [Guardians of the Galaxy] avoided the fatal flaw of Joss Whedon's [Firefly] and this paraphrased quotation from a source I no longer remember: If all the main characters are Han Solo, then none of the characters are Han Solo. The character of Han Solo is cool because he's unique. He did the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs, though a parsec is a unit of distance and not time. Thus his feat was even more impressive. What Gunn and Perlman have done here were to give us unique and memorable characters.

This movie is easily one of my favorite Marvel movies to date. It's funny, quirky, and just all around enjoyable in a way that a lot of Marvel movies haven't been up until now. Peter Quill is a great character that doesn't come off as flat and boring. Drax is easily the best member of the crew, being hilarious despite how 'serious' of a character he is. An excellent movie that sets the tone for future Marvel movies.

I liked this fiction adventure DVD. The brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand-with the galaxy's fate in the balance. They are all used to working alone. Together they stay alive and protected. They shape a bond you only feel with a family. All their crimes are forgiven by the authorities. They officially become the guardian of the galaxy. It is too violent for kids.

Pages of quotes from IMDb:
Groot: I am Groot.
Peter Quill: Well that's just as fascinating as the first 89 times. What is wrong with Giving Tree here?
Rocket Raccoon: Well he don't know talkin' good like me and you, so his vocabulistics is limited to "I" and "am" and "Groot," exclusively in that order.
===
Groot: I ... am ... Groot.
---much later---
Groot: We ... are ... Groot.
===
Rocket Raccoon: He called me "vermin"!
Rocket Raccoon: She called me "rodent"!
Rocket Raccoon: Let's see if you can laugh after five or six good shots in your freakin' face!

Gamora: "I know who you are, Peter Quill, and I am not some starry-eyed waif here to succumb to your... your pelvic sorcery!"
