Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

A movie review by

View official site, facebook site

Guardian of the Galaxy Vol 2 is the second installment of the series set on the backdrop to the music of Mixtape #2. The team continues their adventure as they travel the outer reaches of the universe. The second installment unravels Peter Quill’s parentage. Enemies become allies and characters from Marvel comics novel come to the team’s aid. Like your typical comics novel, the heroes will prevail in the end so the world as we know remains.

Like the first installment, volume 2 is filled likable characters, humor, action and suspense at every turn. While it is entertaining, the plot relied too much on humor where at times it is forced. There were serious moments but they were drowned out by forced jokes and one liner dialogues. It is pretty much the same as the first one with added steroids.

Visual effect is first-rate especially the gold people and the retro music as a soundtrack is cool too. The movie did not make sense but is fun. Overall it is a good popcorn sci-fi movie. It is not a work of art but is fun.

It stars Chris Pratt as Peter Quill, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Bradley Cooper did the voice of Rocket Raccoon and Vin Diesel did the voice of Baby Groot, Kurt Russell as Ego and Karen Gillian as Nebula; directed by James Gunn II.

    Good and fun but not quite as good as the first one, like most sequels are.

  3. georgenom says:

    Almost a blah movie.

  4. Like the first one this is so much fun with very good production design like most summer blockbuster movies. 80’s music, love it.

  5. A good movie, fun and lots of good shots but not as good as the first installment.

  6. It is fun and a few funny moments but give it a few months and it will be forgotten.

  7. Fun but very shallow fun, like Wonder Woman better, the first one is even better than this.

  8. Your typical summer blockbuster movie, lots of good production design but no substance. Good for watching for 2 hours but that’s all.

    This is good but the first one is better, better comedy and better background music too.

    Fun summer movie but hardly memorable, great special effects.

  11. Your typical summer movie lots of whistles and bells, fun but nothing memorable.

    Love it, as good and as funny as the first one and production design and visuals are great too, what’s there not to love with this movie?

    This is a fun summer popcorn movie; as fun as the first one still like how the 80’s movie incorporated into the movie.

  14. Am I the only one who did not like the movie? Bad story, bad comedy where it tried so hard to be funny, it failed to capture the magic of the first one. The only thing I liked is the production design which I think is marvelous.

    Not as great as the first one but still a great watch.

    It did not disappoint, like other sequels I have low expectations but I was not disappointed at all. Good movie. Definitely worth the ticket. I’d go watch it again.
