Take A Brief Look Into The Storyline Of,'Guardians Of The Galaxy'

After the death of his mother Peter Quill is kidnapped and taken to space by the Ravagers. The Ravagers are space-pirates master-minded by Yondu, who ends up raising Quill.

When Quill becomes older, he steals the powerful sought after orb. In the process Quill is stopped by Korath who works for Ronan, a cruel leader who is constantly in search of power. Quill manages to get away with the valuable artifact.

When Yondu finds out that the orb has been stolen, the Ravager’s take out a bounty for Quill to be taken into captivity, and Ronan sends Gamora an assassin after the orb.

Quill’s plan is to sale the orb at the Nova Corps the world of Xandar, however, Gamora traps him and takes the sought after artifact.

Bounty hunters get involved, Raccoon Rocket, and Groot also engage in the scuffle, until the Nova Corps arrive and arrest the rowdy gang.

They are locked up in Kin. All of the inmates hate Gamora, claiming that her father Ronan has killed their family, yet there is one powerful inmate named Drax, who tries to kill Gamora seeking revenge due to the killing of his wife and daughter by Gamora's father.

However Qull talks Drax out of his deadly mission, in which he makes a deal that Gamora, can take him to Ronan.

Gamora shares that she has been deceived by Ronan, not wanting him to use the orb's force to wipe out planets, which include Xandar, Gamora has a buyer for the Orb, Rocket, Quill, Groot, along with Gamaora band together to escape the Kiln.

Meanwhile, Ronan meets up with the titan Thanos to talk about his daughter’s deception surrounding the relic.

Quill and his team of misfits, escape the Kiln in Quill’s ship, the Milano, and take off to Knowhere, a secluded environment in space, composed in a giant detached head of an ancient being.

While Drax is intoxicated for drinking at a space bar, the group meets up with Taneleer Tivan, Gamora’s resource, who opens the relic, which contains an Infinity Stone that has strong deadly power.

Yet Tivan’s servant grabs the stone, which prompts a massive explosion.

Eventually Ronan gains access to the Oreb. The Guardians of the Galaxy must conquer Ronan in order to return the stone to the security of Nova.

This movie is rated PG-13. Due to some verbiage used that is not suitable for younger audience, and violence. However there is a strong message carried throughout the movie which surrounds unity among those who are considered outcast, and finding closure in difficult situations.

Guardians of the Galaxy has a captivating story line packed with action and adventure. The old school music that Quill is fond of inspired by his mother when he was younger provides a wealth of entertainment, as he enjoys singing and grooving to the music in his adult years.

The star power behind this movie is also an engaging factor.
