Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – A Ton of Fun

gotg2

If you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 yet, then what are you doing sitting here reading this? Yes, you can trust me when I say that it’s some of the most fun you’ll have at the movies all year (or at the very least all summer).

So Guardians 2 brings back our cast of unlikely heroes including the awesome Chris Pratt as Peter/Star-Lord, who it turns out has some daddy issues this time around. But lucky for him, he finally gets the chance to meet his real father, a god named Ego, played by the charismatic Kurt Russell.

Ego wants a real relationship with his son this time. But Peter is understandably¬†skeptical about whether he can trust this guy. You can probably take a few guesses about where this story is going to go from here. But this doesn’t really take much away from the entertaining experience.

Other than the beautifully detailed CGI, the real highlight of this film is the characters. And although one or two of the relationships could have definitely used some more development, writer/director James Gunn makes you feel for these characters and does a solid job with the themes of family and friendship. Not to mention the killer funny performances from Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel and Dave Bautista.

And unlike what we’ll likely get with the newest Michael Bay Transformers film later this summer, this one was actually surprisingly light on overly drawn out actions sequences, which was refreshing, to say the least. Combine all of that with the heart in addition to the perfectly fitting song to end the movie on, and we get a really strong film that easily surpasses the original and may just be one of the most enjoyable MCU movies.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 gets an 8 out of 10. Go see it in theaters. Just don’t expect too much from Sylvester Stallone’s small role.
