Gave up the location of the soul stone is what I meant. I know the pressure the character was under and how they felt guilt at treatment of other character but, given that ten minutes previously they had been willing to sacrifice themselves, I didn't entirely buy it.

It did fit with the general theme of sacrifice actually being pretty hard to follow through on though, I guess.

Sorry for double post. 

Anyway it was minor quibble for me. Other people saw it differently.  I'm not going to start a petition saying the film is removed from canon because of it.

I didn't buy it initially meself, but reflecting on what passed between them in GotG2, that as children Gamora never once allowed herself to lose to spare Nebula her punishment, I took it that this was the time that she finally chose her sister over all.

I'm going to the cinema to see it again but pretend I hate it so I can amplify every tiny little plot inconsistency in my mind.

It is the modern mode after all.

Slightly more seriously, I enjoy the popular idea of flipping the whole thing, and viewing it as a Thanos movie, depicting his struggle against impossible odds to recover all the maguffins from a legion of superpowered villains and achieve his goal of galactic peace and prosperity.  In this light the end credits scene echoes a traditional sequel villain-setup a la Flash Gordon.
