Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) is kidnapped by aliens in the 1980's, right after the death of his mother. Years later he has named himself "Starlord", and gets his hands on a strange, powerful jewel that Kree warrior Ronan (Lee Pace) wants, to destroy the world of Nova Prime. Along the way Quill picks up allies Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Drax, other outlaws that become good guys.
Yes, this is the most entertaining Marvel Superhero movie since the first IRON MAN film and a great followup to the directors much lower-budgeted SUPER. In addition to the cameo by Lloyd Kaufman it features a great performance by Dave Bautista and an appearance by Howard the Duck. And after watching this I really think Vin Diesel should legally change his name to Groot.
