To call this another Marvel winner would be an understatement.

Volume 2 is the best cinematic experience I've had in a long time. The action is great, the various cameos hilarious, the effects awe-inspiring and the laughs frequent and well-placed (one of the few gripes I had with Doctor Strange). And in the midst of all this, what really drives the story and keeps the audience interested is the character development. The heroes with which we fell in love in Volume 1 become deeper and multilayered, and the new additions add fantastic new dynamics.

While still falling victim to some minor storytelling tropes, GotG2 is the epitome of the spectacle movie.

Watching this feels like watching two different movies. The first movie is one in which jokes are forced and music feels shoehorned in. It feels like the writers and director are beating you over the head trying to make the point of "look, look, remember us? remember how you liked music and jokes the last time?" For me the first half of this movie is a poor imitation of the first Guardians of the Galaxy. 6/10.

All of this changes around an hour into the movie however. Once they actually started moving forward with the plot, this movie becomes something special. The second half of this movie is perhaps the best thing that Marvel Studios has put to screen. It is so heartfelt and moving, the comedy lands PERFECTLY every time, and the movie makers allow us as an audience to remember what we loved about these characters the first time around organically. The second half of this movie is almost flawless.

Special mention to Dave Bautista's Drax... by far and away the character that stole the show. HILARIOUS!

World Premiere Review - 4/19/17

Still a lot of fun, but suffers from sequelitis. Bottom line, you'll have a ton of fun with this, especially if you're familiar with the backstory and characters. The most common problem is slow pace. Scenes go on for too long. Second, the tone is all over the place to where its slightly confusing. I can't imagine what it must feel like watching this if you're not familiar with the material. Music is used perfectly as the first one did. It's enjoyable and fun and that's all I expect from movies like this.

Stray observation: Stallone can barely get his lines off without having a stroke...he can't possibly keep getting casted because he's the best person available...

A fun and enjoyable adventure, and it's a pleasure to spend further time with these characters. However, the theme of family was contrived, and its time Marvel learned that 'less is more' when it comes to climactic boss fights. Still, I am looking forward to Vol.3.

Haha yess, I have famously huge turds!

OMG!! Baby Groot was so adorable and funny.
So maybe in Vol. 3 Gamora and Peter will be finally a couple??
Drax is freaking funny and so inappropriate. LOL
I really like this movie.

The best Marvel movie so far, by far.

very fun enjoyable movie, GROOT is soooo cute i'm a guy so i shouldn't say this but i always state facts so... very sad about Yondu!

Manages to impress much like the first, but weighted down a little by the need to shoehorn in some pathos that make an otherwise great movie a little awkward at around 2/3rds in.

I'm the only bloke on the planet who didn't like the first Guardians of the Galaxy, and here's another unpopular opinion: I like this one more than the first, despite the third act going on far too long.

One of my top movies of the year. Combining heart with action, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 delivers a story that the whole family can enjoy.

loading replies

Amazing movie. Aside form the fantastic chemistry and great character development, the pretty decent plot the music is what takes this movie from good to fantastic. Its also an emotional ride with a lot of well written and scripted jokes to poignant moments of emotional bonding and sadness.

Highly recommended. One of the top marvel movies to date.

loading replies

Funny. Not liking so much humour though. It's more like e Disney movie. I prefer more tension, drama, serousness, that's why I am enjoying DC's movies more. This is way too much comedy and visuals. I will probably forget it in a month. On the other hand lttle Groot is so sweet, he won me when I first watched him.

One of the worst theater experiences I've had and not because of thr audience just because how bad the movie is. This movie is terrible with almost action scenes just thrown in there pointless to the story jokes that make you shake your head every 30 secs and writing that ruined everything so good about the charcaters in the 1st movie and drax and rocket are annoying af

This was pretty simple a fantastic movie, you got a very intriguing story that is well served, marvelous visuals and comedy done right. The whole "scotch tape" scene bring me down on my knees. Totally ninja movie and baby Groot should have its own spin-off and i totally agree that Drax's lines shine on the movie

loading replies

It's AMAZING!! Totally worth the wait and the hype. The most important thing is that the movie is so much fun!! Feels like an adventure, has its deep moments and also some hilarious ones. The visuals are breathtaking, and they nailed once again on the soundtrack. The only thing I didn't quite like was the final showdown, but it doesn't ruin the experience.

I found the final battle between Starlord and Ego too cheesy. I loved that Ego ended up being the villain(even more because it wasn't spoiled to me), and that we finally understood Peter's lineage, but I'm glad Ego is gone and we won't see peter create rocks out of his "heart" again.

loading replies

They've done it again! What a marvellous movie. The character development is brilliant. I love how the more we go on the more we find out about these guys. The soundtrack is immense, making fantastic use of some of the greatest songs ever composed in 'The Chain' and 'Brandy'. Effects are on point and more action than the first. I'd say it's as good if not better than the first. A solid 9/10!

I had so much fun watching this movie! Great cast (Chris Pratt is looking fine...), great cast additions (Kurt Russell - young and not so young - Sly, Tommy Flanagin; Stan lee (twice - of course you sit though ALL the credits); laugh out loud wit; great action (seeing it on a big screen is highly recommended). I give it an enthusiastic 9 (superb) out of 10.

loading replies

Continuing with the same comedic themes and action as the first. The opening credit scene is awesome. Lots of laughs and action. Many great cameos and easter eggs. The young Ego looks amazing.

loading replies

I've enjoyed the humor from goofy easy jokes to "not the right time to have this conversation" the movie carries in a relaxed but entertaining rhythm. The plots explore some family issues among the characters wich add some good drama to it. The VFX are just awesome, camera angles and money shots just fill your eyeballs and make you vomit rainbows. This was a very complete experience. Too bad blockbusters like this will never be seen as good masterpieces of drama of humor. But... You'll be entertained for sure.

loading replies

Yep, it's as good as the trailers.

Fantastic picture! Spot on comedy! Super effects! Fab cast! Great storyline! Fun action! Top beginning, and after credits! Groot is the cutest root ever! Drax put me in giggle fits! Easter eggs were super! This puts the first movie in shame! Brill sound track! I liked that it can put you in tears, and then make you laugh out loud in-between, and after... It's great to be alive!

I'm so in love with GOTG this movie is so amazing too! A must see for true fans can't wait to see it again and Drax rocks!

A bit goofy and uneven at times but very funny. The Rocket and Yondu scenes are probably the best. Drax and Mantis were were great too. Just needs some better writing and more of the characters the first one teased us with. I especially want Cosmo and Howard the Duck helping the Guardians.
Some of the new songs are pretty much "easy listening" rock. So the soundtrack is a little disappointing. Fox on a Run is probably the best. While I do get why there's not too much focus on new characters. To build more on relationships of the first films characters.
However it felt like Alice: Through the LooKing Glass which pretty much was made to work out the issues between father and sons and sisters who didn't get along. Except, yes this movie is much better than that one.

What a great film. Plus they added a meme/inside joke in the Spanish (from Spain) version, I really loved it. Funny and emotional.

Watching this i realised that the Guardians are the BEST of MCU and absolutely my favorite, Thor will go down to the second place.

It's like they took everything that made the first movie be spectacular and tried to do again, except not as spectacular. So the whole time it's like been there, done that. Literally nothing special to see here.

loading replies

Ok, awesome movie. Straight up. But, as usual, they just have to add something that is cute for no reason. Do they add this so in case you want to watch it and you brought your kid and that cute whatever things makes it watchable for the kid? I don't get it...

Also, it seems like the various writers had to frations. One, the smaller one, wanted to make a musical. And the other an action packed movie. The music guys lost but they slipped in pointless songs. I wanted to skip those parts...

But still, awesome movie. Watch it!!

loading replies

Fantastic follow up. It's so much fun and really develops these characters and universe into a delightful, funny, action-packed rollercoaster. It's not quite as strong as the original, mostly due to trying to rely too heavy on crowd-pleasing moments that worked so well I'm the first one. But it's still a blast. The family elements work so great. Yondu really steals this movie, in pretty much every way imaginable.

the story tell deeper about every character specially Peter. i found the action flicks improve from first one. really enjoy the soundtrack and special effects. all the hate for plot is unacceptable. wish the best for Vol. 3

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is fun and the characters deliver once again but the story is lacking and the villain was a little too messy for me. James Gunn effort still deserves applause though. The cast all deliver once again but sadly this falls towards the middle of the pack for the Marvel films.

Wasn't bad, it has some really fun moments, but overall it is a lot LOT weaker then the first one

Most poignant ending to any of the MCU films.

loading replies

Entertaining but not without it's flaws

The first Guardians movie was a recipe that turned out better than anyone expected. Guardians 2 is what happens when you take that recipe and go extra with it. It's the Doritos locos taco of movies.

Guardians 2 isn't a bad movie, it's definitely entertaining but it's obvious this one was forced out after the unexpected success of the first film. It's pretty much the same formula in larger quantities. The soundtrack stood out in the first film so they oversaturate the the sequel with music. There was a lot of comic relief in the first film so they push the comedy to the point of silliness and dick jokes in the second film. It followed the game plan so much the big climax was all too predictable.

Visually it was great, had some good laughs but it basically recycles ideas and it doesn't add anything new or fresh to story.

loading replies

For those who seek a good family movie, look no further. This one is filled with laughs and some great old tunes. The plot isn't the best with most of it VERY predictable. The acting is awesome add in the great writing and you got a blockbuster. Over all not better then the first but a good movie in its own right .

For me, this didn't beat the original, but I did love me some Groot <3 And again, outstanding music!

I must say, I liked the original better. The movie was still very funny and enjoyable to watch, but I felt like the action and suspense was better in the first movie. Mostly because I liked the villain from the first movie better. That being said, this movie also had a lot more real emotion than the first one and I must admit that the ending was very well done.

loading replies

Not so good as the first movie.

loading replies

I was not a huge fan of the first movie and I'm also not a huge fan of this movie. The story is kind of boring and predictable at times as well as why even bother with something this flat…
The jokes on the other hand are amazing and basically make up for the boring storyline. The photography and animations are really great as well – and how could I not say that both Groot and the Racoon aren't amazingly cute!

loading replies

In some ways better than the already great first film. This follow-up had me smiling the whole time. It was funny, it was sad, it was quite simply everything that a blockbuster should strive to be.

loading replies

Was a lot of fun. The first fight scene was great. Soundtrack wasn't as strong as the first IMO. A lot of beautiful shots with bright colors. Yondu's death was sad. Ego was a decent villain. Didn't quite understand why he was destroying the universe. Already looking forward to the next one but we have infinity war first.

loading replies

A root canal treatment would be more entertaining... it started of nice, but I got totally lost after 30 minutes in. It's just a pathetic attempt to milk the cash cow any further. The one liners are not even funny anymore and the whole thing looks like someone was tripping on acid. Let alone the none existing an unemphatic plot. Event the excellent soundtrack wasn't able to do anything for me anymore.

Oh, and for all the haters of my comment.. I did like the first one. But that's it, no more Marvel for me, they just overdone it with this one.

Absolute masterpiece. I have no bad things to say about this one. Better than first one which has been my favorite movie since it came out.
