My Thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was such a good movie! This film was filled to the brim with humor, space battles, and beautiful visuals (yes, again this includes Chris Pratt). Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord (Christ Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) are teamed up and are called to protect and fight for the galaxy again. What is it that is threatening the galaxy and calling these heroes back in to action, you ask? Well, you will just have to wait and see the film for yourself to find out. I don’t want to ruin it for you because this movie is well worth seeing!
On top of the action, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 expands on Peter Quill’s story and history. The half-human, half-alien leader of the guardians is forced to face his past and come to terms with the truth of his parents. (There is something here that is sure to cause you to shed a tear or two).
In this pursuit, you are introduced to two new characters, Mantis (Pom Klementieff) and Ego (Kurt Russell) who join the cast to complicate matters even more for Peter Quill and the rest of the guardians. This is an action packed film that will keep you wanting more and hey if you saw Chris Pratt on Jimmy Kimell you know a third on is on the way. 🙂
So my Marvel loving friends my take is that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a must see. It will leave you mind blown by the effects, character relationship and emotional attachment you’re sure to have. If you’re looking for a great movie that is sure to impress Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 if for you! Now, let the countdown begin for Vol. 3.
