Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2's action-packed plot, dazzling visuals, and irreverent humor add up to a sequel that's almost as fun -- if not quite as thrillingly fresh -- as its predecessor.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has all the Marvel's signature written all over it. Fun, action-packed, dazzling visuals and at times a great story and at times just a so-so. This movie falls on the latter for me. GOTG Vol. 2 focuses more on family as Peter Quill reunites with his father and the group's friendship is put to a test with the arrival of Ego. This is still a very entertaining movie for Marvel always does but the execution is kind a messy and the third act is just downright silly. Towards the end it does compensate for a heartfelt ending with all the kinship especially for Yondu's character who by the way together with Baby Groot and Rocket made up the most hilarous scene of the movie. With a runtime of 2hrs and 16 mins, I felt the movie was too long and I can't believe I said that to a Marvel film. GOTG Vol. 2 is just a typical sequel no matter how much emotion it tried to inject. It's as fun as the first but this time it's just trying too hard.
