The guardians of the galaxy are back with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2. When I saw the trailer, I thought it was going to be amazing. Then, I saw some film critics reviewing this movie and they said that it was just good but not as good as the first one. So I was expecting this movie to be good, but not as good as the original, and sure enough, that is exactly what I thought about this movie.
I will go more in depth on why I really like this film, but you might be asking, what is the plot of this film, well in this film, Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) has meet his long lost father, named Ego (Kurt Russell) and finds out what has happened to his father during the events of the last film. When that is going on, Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is reconnecting with her sister Nebula (Karen Gillan) and while that is going on, Drax (Dave Bautista) is bonding with new character of the Mantis (Pom Klementieff). When that is going on, in a different location, Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Groot (Vin Diesel), and Yondu (Michael Rooker) all team up to save the others while Rocket and Groot actually bond with Yondu. As you can tell that is a lot going on.
Alright so what do I like about this movie? Well I like that it is how a sequel should be, None of the characters are ruined or destroyed by this movie, they are just like how they were in the last movie, they are just in a different type of situation. Also, they bring back some elements from the first movie, like the team cracking jokes, which was funny in the first one and still is in this movie. Another thing that they bring back in this movie from the first is the music, and sure I might like the music in the first movie more, this movie still has memorable music.
Yondu in this movie is probably the best thing about this movie and one of the few things that I find better in this movie than the first. This movie makes me want to care about Yondu a lot more than before and I surely do. I will not go into why I care so much about Yondu in this film because this is a spoiler free review. Another great thing about this movie is that this movie is big, there are so many interesting locations in this movie that I would want to see, and my gosh, is it beautiful. Groot and Rocket are still as funny as ever and so are the other characters.
Though there are some great things about this movie, the movie is pretty flawed. You might be asking why? Well that is because the plot in this movie is everywhere! There is a lot going on in this movie and some of those plot lines feel like they don’t really need to exist. In the movie there are these golden people, and they just felt unnecessary. I can’t remember a thing about them. I know in an after credits scene, they are going to play a big part in the next movie, but still, they serve almost no purpose to the story of this movie. Another problem that I have with this movie is the pacing while good can go pretty slow, I think this movie is about three to five scenes pretty long, but it is a little nitpick.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 is a sequel done right in my opinion, it is one of the greatest marvel sequels in the MCU. While flawed, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 is a fun movie that will make you laugh at least once.
