Because the first Guardians Of The Galaxy was so dang popular, it was almost impossible for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 to be a failure. Everyone involved in this movie seemed determined to crank up everything you love about the first movie to 11. They didn’t hold anything back. The result is a roller coaster of a movie that leaves you a little queasy like maybe you ate half a bucket too much popcorn.
But ya know what? It was totally worth it. Like the first movie, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 puts the fun back into dysfunctional family while they save the universe from a roguish bad-boy set on making every civilization in the universe in his own image. Yes, we are talking about a Celestial, if you follow the Marvel Universe.
If you liked Baby Groot in the first move, you get plenty of him Vol.2. If you loved Drax’s too blunt for civil company comments, you get even more of it in Vol 2. If you enjoyed Gamora’s killer action scenes and eye-rolls at Peter, you get plenty of both in Vol. 2.
It’s more of the same, lots more of it. Almost too much.
The only other thing I’ll say about the movie is that I have been totally vindicated with regard to the Truth about Peter’s father!
