Let’s be honest, you’re not gonna wait for anyone’s opinion or recommendation on this movie. Chances are, you’ve already seen it, and if you haven’t, you know you’re not gonna wait for reviews, that shit is already on your calendar.
BUT if you’re still here, well, let me just say that GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 is FUCKING AWESOME!
Really, that’s pretty much it in a nutshell. It’s everything you loved from the first one: the action, the wit, the music, just the overall fun, but this time, it’s BIGGER! And though, sometimes bigger in movies is not necessarily a good thing. But it works so well here.
What I love here is that nothing was lost from the first movie. VOL. 2 just built on everything I loved, and gave me more. Baby Groot without a doubt stole the show. But I think we all knew that was going to happen, haha. But for me, sequels rarely meet the original, but James Gunn definitely hits that mark, and quite possibly made a sequel better than the original. And I personally don’t think that’s an easy feat.
And just for personal giggles, both as a comic fan, and a child of the ’80s, loved actually catching some of the Easter Eggs this time out, and LOVED the overall vibe of the movie.
If you’re a child of the ’80s too? You’ll see what I mean.
So pretty much, if you loved the first one? You’re gonna love VOL. 2. Never saw the first one? But you’re looking for a fun ride? You’re gonna dig this.
Safe to say, stop reading my babbles, and go see GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2!
I AM GROOT!
OH, just one last thing before I go… if you’ve already seen VOL. 2, and wasn’t sure what to do with the post-credits scenes? io9 has got you covered. BUT WARNING, POTENTIAL SPOILERS! But if you’re into it, check it out here.
