Movie Review: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 (Review #2)

You know, to me personally, I think the first Guardians of the Galaxy is a bit over-rated. Heck, I even read a comment where someone said that the Guardians are better than the Avengers. I mean the characters not the movie, but those same people who think that may put the movie higher than Avengers. Why? I'll never know. But I'll respect it because they are cool characters.

After saving Xandar from Ronan's wrath, the Guardians are now recognized as heroes. Now the team must help their leader Star Lord (Chris Pratt) uncover the truth behind his true heritage. Along the way, old foes turn to allies and betrayal is blooming. And the Guardians find that they are up against a devastating new menace who is out to rule the galaxy.

As I said, I find the Guardians of the Galaxy to be over-rated and I really don't care for the opening of that film with Peter singing and kicking the little aliens because it was obviously played for laughs and was completely ridiculous. But the opening sequence of this film, where baby groot is running around while a battle is going on around him, is actually pretty cool.

I love the entire cast. Karen Gillan's Nebula, who's
 going through a stake of survival so she can kill her father Thanos, had some great scene's with Gamora. Dave Bautista, who is more of a background physical actor and who once admitted he's not that great of an actor, was more fun this time around. Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana who play my favorites, Star-Lord and Gamora, were amazing. I loved their chemistry in this film. Especially Star-Lord who grows as a character when he meets his father Ego the Living Planet, played by Kurt Russel. I love the scene where he creates this blue celestial ball and they act like a regular father and son playing catch with it. Michael Rooker is my Mary Poppins, that's all I'm going to say about him. It was cool to see Sylvester Stallone and I hope he's in the next one a little bit more. Oh, and Seth Green returns as Howard The Duck. I doubt you'll miss him as he has a pretty cool line.

The film is a lot more about family just like the recent few Fast & Furious movies. Well, I know what family I want to spend more time with. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has more heart, with astounding visuals that bring this massive space opera (which is far better than The Force Awakens by the way) and it tones down the humor, thank goodness. This was an amazing chapter in the massive Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Eddie's Score: 10/10
