On May 5, the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy was released in theaters.
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” follows in the footsteps of its predecessor and successfully fixes comedy and action into one coherent, excellent story.
The movie opens to the five guardians: Peter Quill, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Racoon, and Groot fighting a giant monster with tentacles to get valuables back for a society of perfectly bred golden people.
However, Rocket Racoon grows tired of the golden gods leader Ayesha talking down to him and steals the items they were sent to retrieve for them. This leads to the society hunting down and attempting to kill the Guardians throughout the movie.
The movie is full of comical and action packed moments one after another, somehow making me burst out laughing with scenes such as one with one of the characters Mantis reading Peter’s mind and revealing his feelings for Gamora, and then seamlessly transition into an epic battle just mere minutes later.
This is one of the few movies that can successfully have you on the edge of your seat in excitement and roaring in laughter at the same time.The plot is also filled with twists and turns to keep you guessing what the true intentions of characters are, which adds another interesting dynamic into the movie.
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” takes what the first one did and turns it up to 11. They have refined what they did in the first go-around and improved it to be one of the best movies Marvel has made yet. Everything the first Guardians movie did Vol. 2 did better, and that’s no easy feat.
All in all, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is a great movie to see if you are a Marvel fan, but it’s great even if you don’t consider yourself a big follower of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is well worth the price of admission and will entice you with its humor and action from beginning to end.
