Action-packed plot, dazzling visuals, brazen humor – the sequel is almost as fun, if not quite as thrillingly fresh, as its predecessor, says Rotten Tomatoes and gives Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 an 83% rating. The movie started showing at the Cinema City this Thursday.
Guardians of the Galaxy are now famous after their first brush at saving the galaxy. This time, things turn ugly for them when they mess up a job entrusted to them and now the Sovereign are after their life.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 provides all the non-stop comedy and zany cosmic action that audiences now expect from the Guardians film franchise, but winds up being more of a sturdy connective bridge to bigger adventures in the future than a great chapter in the larger MCU saga, on its own. The sequel leans more on its soundtrack and colorful imagery as part of its efforts to recapture the sincere heart and crackling energy of its predecessor, but comes up short all the same. Bearing that in mind: so long as moviegoers go in anticipating a Marvel Studios film that provides more time with their favorite characters, but serves more to fill the gap between Guardians #1 and the next major MCU event – namely, the Guardians’ appearance in Avengers: Infinity War – rather than stand alone, then Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 should meet their expectations. And of course, don’t leave until the end credits for the film are completely done rolling.”
