Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 is basically the same as the original except better quality all around except quantity of jokes. Well, this is the minority opinion but still. I did a poll on my story on what one you all think is superior and 58% of you said the original is better. I don’t understand so please let me know down below. But anyway, the review.
Fans are blessed once again as Marvel decides to give a sequel that is worth our time and doesn’t set up the entire future of the MCU for the next 4 billion movies. In this non-superhero movie sequel, we get another Quill led Guardians of the Galaxy story. A film that further builds and develops everyone we love into better, more well-rounded and very much ‘human’ characters. It also develops the relationships within the group, giving them all separate and unique conflicts within themselves and each other so the film can explore things other than a big space story of death and spaceships. They even add a couple of new characters into the team and build them up just as well. Clearly, James Gunn has taken care in writing their story and has created the best collection of characters in the MCU. Tony Stark and Steve Rogers (and a few others) have their moments, but none are as consistently great as these ones.
Ignoring the best part of the film (the characters and their inner conflicts) we also have a unique, exciting and entertaining big space story of death and spaceships. There is no real villain until the end and it totally works. Yes, Nebula and the Gold-Cunts are minor antagonists but they’re clearly not a big deal. Amongst this unique story about a living planet trying to be a living universe who went around fucking all the bitches just to make this happen, we have a fucking ginormous range of action. Fast-paced spaceship battles, big inter-dimensional monsters, girl-on-girl hand-to-hand combat, whatever that scene with Rocket in the woods was, two celestial beings making giant shit to ram into each other, Yondu’s beautiful solo act with his beloved arrow, and way fucking more. It’s packed, it’s all incredibly fun to watch and way, way better than the first. (cont->)
