This could've used 31% less quipping and doubling down on Obvious Character Traits. Mantis felt half-baked, Baby Groot is just there to sell toys and the final showdown (with Mario-style moving platforms and iffy physics) didn't really wow me in any way. That said, Yondu The Movie (featuring the GotG) is full of cool designs, color, humor, a great cast & cameos, emotional payoffs and I can't not be down with rainbow-energy-puking tentacle monsters. Does what a sequel should, most of the time.

I was pleasantly surprised with this! It does take a minute to start, but after the set-up, it never lets up. The sense of humor gets progressively funnier and the visual effects are as dazzling as ever. They actually developed the guardians really well in this. I like what they did with Gamora, Nebula, Rocket, Yondu, and Star-Lord. The movie adds some genuine emotion to the characters and develops them really well. All in all, this was a very solid sequel. Totally worth watching!

Marvel's take on Star Wars with the ship helmed by Captain Kirk. It has a great soundtrack, a strong supporting cast, and impressive visual effects which were quite colourful. The final action scene was quite reminiscent of an end of game boss battle. There are plenty of jokes and most of them land but at times jokes were made at the expense of a dramatic moment and undercuts the impact. Although still connected it feels tangential to the MCU. Overall it's great fun and as good as the first film

How easy is Dave Jordan's job, and how do I get it? "Hey guys I think this seminal chart-topping hit could work great over dramatic slo-mo!" - should be me. Better yet, just let me upload my own playlist to the blu-ray so I can put Kool & the Gang on there like god intended. Anyway, the laugh quota is way too high and there's a few dodgy lines and edits but I don't care. It's the only time I've ever shed a tear with 3D glasses on.

I thought it was tremendous - with more emotional depth than the first one, and the sci-fi did something that Star Wars and Star Trek seem unable to do, it took me to new and genuinely wondrous places. I'm all in on this franchise. Many critics praised the first one for its novelty, and inevitably this sequel has disappointed them, but if you loved the first one for reasons other than "this is new!" I think you'll find even more of what you loved this time round.

The "Marvel Cinematic Universe" returns with another fun filled space adventure in this sequel to "Guardians of the Galaxy"(2014). James Gunn is back with our favorite group of intergalactic losers in this darker more character focused story about the true meaning of family. However not in the beat you to death with stupid action and monologues about family like seen in "The Fast and the Furious" franchise, but instead a fun heartfelt story that weaves all of our characters into a real family.

A Pop Rocks(c), pop-opera action fantasy that breaks down Looking Glass' "Brandy (You're A Fine Girl)" as a major plot point - said another way, it's a pitch-perfect homage of The Empire Strikes Back, but all Marvely. While movie execs have wet dreams over the amount of money printed to see this, they should be equally sexed by the deft use of formula (it works!) in support of well-realized characters. A look at the beginning and end *non-stinger credits shows where Gunn rightly keeps his focus.

A patient, layered narrative does a remarkable job at developing our beloved characters (though some arcs are better than others: Rocket, Yondu, and the touching epilogue > the crazy sisters). Add in shiploads of comedy (not all of it lands, but Drax is always a delight) and this sequel's almost more like a quirky dramedy set in a colourful 80s-tinged space setting than a superhero flick at times (standard "blow it up" climax aside), which is refreshing-as is the more subtly sinister villain.

Please keep these characters away from the Avengers for another movie or five. I don't want to endure a scene of Captain America / Rocket banter, just take me out back and shoot me. This is the only Marvel property that interests me next to Howard the Duck. I left the theatre and this group of kids were begging their parents to take them to the store to buy them Rumours.

donald trump is president, leicester won the premier league, and now the funniest fucking comic actor in hollywood is batista. planet earth has jumped the shark and needs to be destroyed. (but yeah, this got to me, not gonna lie. the messy dysfunctional family dynamic derived from secret and shared pain is why i watch these movies, not the hip nostalgia. love how, e.g., quill uses the smallness of rocket and baby groot in more or less the same way yondu once used quill.)

If it's viewed as comedy-sci fi, it's a satisfactory experience. The central plot feels slightly aimless with the villain's primary motivations intentionally hidden (although obviously insidious). And the attempt at the end to heighten the stakes felt incredibly forced. However, it works as a crowd-pleasing experience, one filled with a frenzy of psychedelic colors, galactic blasts, and comedic gags.

They try a little too hard early on (with Drax, mostly), but there are still a lot of amazing jokes (especially from Rocket). So while it may have more jokes that don't hit, it still has a ton that do, and it has more heart, more emotion, along with better action sequences. And this time around they have Ego, who is a much better villain. After reconsidering though, I think I like the first one a little more. Guardians to me is a comedy first and foremost and the first does that better.

A bit weaker than the first one overall, but it ultimately pays off with a much more satisfying emotional arc than these types of films tend to have, so I do recommend Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Family Issues. Dave Bautista's comedic timing is so on point the entire time, it's incredible.

How this tremendously-worthy sequel compares to the first: there's more comedy that's slightly less effective per-capita (I feel Vol. 1 was funnier, though some of that may be the novelty of "the first time"); there's more emotional content that hits harder and sticks with you more strongly than that in the first; and while the first is likely a better movie from an entertainment standpoint, I feel that "Vol. 2" is arguably more complete; among the most well-rounded and best overall MCU films.

The Guardians movies are popcorn for the soul, and I'm glad I don't have to live off them alone, but what the hell is wrong with laughing for two hours and sniffling a bit for a second at the end? There's not a single twist you won't see coming, but you'll enjoy them all and then they play Parliament over the closing credits. If you expect any less, you'll love it. If you expect any more, you're a moron.

A little slow start, but once the team splits up this movie has legs and moves while be both heart wrenching and funny. Balances the humor really well without turning everyone into a jokster quip machine, like Avengers: Age of Ultron. Acting across the board is very strong, especially from Dave Bautista and Michael Rooker; the latter of which is the surprise hit of the movie.

Every once in a long while someone gives you something or alerts you to something that is tailor made for you. The key demographic seems impossibly to be one, and that one is you. Now despite the fact that this is an honor if not an anomaly, for whatever reason, it just doesn't click. I don't know why this happens but it does. I also don't know if anyone in their right mind could consider Starlord as a main character in this story.

There is a genuinely fantastic sci-fi idea at the center of this, and my only real problem with GotG2 is that this idea isn't utilized better. Besides that, the sequel was exactly as enjoyable, colorful and offbeat as one could have hoped for, even if it isn't quite able to recreate the lightning in a bottle charm of the first one

Familiar in all of the right ways, but never afraid to take a risk or two, "Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2" is a superhero sequel done right, a bombastic, energetic display of sheer cinematic craftsmanship that takes the characters and locations of the first and never looks back, blasting them into a bright and wonderfully irreverent future.

This gets a lot right, similar to the first film. The characters and acting are good, it is visually very impressive, the humour stands up, action scenes work well and even the more ambitious emotional beats are effective. If it tries to pack too much in, it gets away with it. Decent music choices as well. Solidly entertaining.

The bad: The gold aliens are annoyingly simply motivated and inconsistent, the entire middle section is unbalanced and feature the wasted "you're just jealous" plot device, and half the humor is awkward and fell flat. The good: Beautiful visuals, the same characters we came to love just being who they are, Kurt Russel as an incredible Ego the Living Planet, and a great performance by Michael Rooker as Yondu. Not up to par with the first but still good fun.

Walking out I thought to myself: "How could that have been better?" I couldn't think of anything. I mean, if you're paying to see a PG-rated sci-fi action adventure comedy...what the hell more could you ask for?? I laughed quite a bit, and when I wasn't, I found I had a wide grin on my face. It highly emphasized the comedy. I wasn't the only film goer enjoying it, the whole theatre was eating it up! Not only do I think it's better than the original, it's one of my top-8 films of the last decade!

Somehow the makers of GotG2 managed to take all the nostalgic masturbation and emotional emptiness of "dad rock" and give it form in this movie both by its literal presence in the soundtrack, and in the more figurative sense of plot and painfully archetypal characters. The plot meanders quite a bit, failing to connect in a deep manner the entire movie, even being further undermined by poor attempts at humor. Marvel movies ultimately function as mental junk food anymore, and I'm bored by it all.

The Guardians films are the golden crowns atop the MCU because they're a little more adult, a little more relaxed, more whole than pieces of larger stories, and because James Gunn has probably been given the most stylistic license from Marvel. Vol 2 is nearly on par with its predecessor. Its plot could've lent to some awful tropes, and I won't say it isn't formulaic, but it often delivers with pizazz and manages to hide some effective emotional gut-punches until they've already connected.

It's not as tightly constructed as the first and is considerably easier to pick holes in, particularly in the final act where a rush to cram in action and character development lead to some clumsy moments. But most jokes land, it looks great and is a shit load of fun. I know I'll watch again countless times and look forward to Vol.3.

I like the Guardians characters, their banter, their discovering family with each other. I like the music. I get the appeal. But this sequel was flawed, cliched, and even offensive. Even the action was kinda dumb. For a film that legitimately appeals to kids there were too many penis-type jokes, along with the heroization of a psychopathic, mass-murdering, child-kidnapping father-figure (he's a good guy at heart). And really, the old "why can't you just be happy for me" line? Is Peter 15?

In typical GUARDIANS fashion, VOL. 2 takes a rote sequel idea--exploring a hero's hazy backstory--and shapes it into something worthy of its impish worldview. The result is another crowd-pleasing exaltation, an acceptably zany detour in the Marvel Universe, and the only thread that feels like a truly independent vision. While it doesn't have the sneak-attack charm of its predecessor, it's nice to see that there's still plenty of heart left in the galaxy.

Except for a hilarious bit involving tape in the last 40 mins, the jokes only serve to undercut any dramatic tension. While watching these characters argue is better than their CGI ships blasting each other, what saves this from being totally blah are those last 40 mins, when the team is suddenly no longer putzing around & given an actual objective & a personal stake in winning. It also has a bizarre & unique reveal w/ the biggest arc belonging to a previously 1-dimensional supporting character

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a step-up from it's predecessor. While the first volume was a pleasant and witty surprise, Vol. 2 steps up it's game with an additional emotional punch the first film lacked. While the film may be just a tad too long it is still a true enjoyment with the characters, visuals and the score being the biggest highlights of the film.

I dare say that this sequel is funnier than the original. Is it a better movie? No, but it does provide great arcs for its characters, although this comes at the expense of a focused plot. The last act feels a bit familiar, but the conclusion has a lot of heart. It's an entertaining film, not a profound one, but that's all it ever set out to be. Bring on the next one.

A rare sequel in the Marvel franchise system that manages to address it's predecessors flaws and not side-step them. It takes its cast of characters and expands them all, giving each one time to develop in their own way. It even has a much stronger villain than the original. The way that it uses its admittedly simple themes goes a long to making this one stand out from other comic book movies because it has real, tangible emotional stakes and themes. One of the best the MCU has to offer.

Better than the first, with a more concise story and consistent tone. Some sequences, the opening in particular, are fantastic - this is better the more 80s it is.

Cut a half hour and it could be an absolute classic.

I don't mind sequels if they're as good as the original, and this one is better. It hits all the buttons including humor, and it's use of music is excellent making this about as good as they can make a superhero movie. Yeah, the script is uneven, but it keeps you off balance, which is a good thing. I know the story centers on Peter Quill, and I'm a Pratt fan, but the scene stealers are the damn racoon, Drax and Groot. After still very much enjoying my 5th viewing, I upgraded it to a 9, 8/1/17.

It's better than a lot of other Marvel movies to come out lately but it still doesn't do a whole lot different. A load of hit-and-miss jokes that just as often feel like they are placed in there because someone thought, "a joke needs to be here" as opposed to a natural moment. So many are tied to the emotional moments they undermine them. The third act is completely rushed and spurred by arguably the dumbest line of dialogue a villain has ever said. While flawed it's still quite enjoyable.

Ultra-commercial filmmaking is inevitably about striking a balance between competing demands and expectations, including, most difficult of all, the hope of seeing something unexpected. The latter is, by definition, the hardest to repeat in a sequel. One can feel throughout this film how much Gunn wants to hit the sweet spot again. For this viewer, the jokey, more casual first half succeeds at that better than the extended action sequences and attempts at generating sentiment in the second half.

Let's start with this: GOTG2 is visually stunning. CGI has come a long way in recent years and this is a great example. The franchise's vintage, '80s, lightweight, humourous core is still there of course and my heartstrings were once more plucked in a surprisingly immediate way for such a film. You'll be glued to your seat throughout even if the (startling) final act is where the real action begins. All in all, GOTG and its genre-breaking DNA continue to thrill despite occasional conventions.

The Guardians are back to save the Galaxy again, this time from a godlike sentient planet appropriately named Ego. After the (admittedly excellent) opening credits, this flick largely grinds to a halt, presenting very little plot in favor of several alternating scenes of comedy and people shouting and arguing. A bunch of the comedy is good (Drax has some absurdly hilarious lines), and the music is all fantastic, but this movie is at least 40 minutes too long...40 very shouty minutes.

Retroactive 86=>88 for MCU series Really builds on the first movie, esp in building up the characters and their relations with each other. Not quite as laugh-out-loud funny as the first, but more than makes up with much deeper emotional impact (some write this off as sappy, but I really bought into it). Rocket and Yondu especially steal the show in this one. With the increased character focus there's a lot more depth to their actions and it's less of a generic good vs ultimate evil conflict.

Vol. 2 is a thoroughly enjoyable sequel that delivers in ways that most sequels fail to. James Gunn steers away from trying too hard to make a film that's bigger and better than its predecessor. But instead he focuses on expanding the universe and exploring both the new and returning characters further. I love Chris Pratt & Kurt Russell together. But this sequel belongs to Michael Rooker. Another great soundtrack, exciting set pieces, comic relief and of course Baby Groot make this a fun sequel.

Certainly a lot better than the first movie.The humor is better, the action scenes have improved and the chemistry with the main team improved significantly. That said, the movie still falls into some really lame and predictable cliches - obviously Kurt Russell is the villain, OBVIOUSLY Kondu is going to sacrifice himself for redemption, etc.Around the end, the movie became very rote and ham-fisted. Still, the film leaves off on a solid ending even if the rest of the film was fairly unremarkable

The empath Mantis was also a fun & creative addition. Watching Rocket Raccoon's mayhem is always entertaining. Oh yeah, the leads Zoe Saldana & Chris Pratt (yes in that order) acquitted themselves well.

Wow.... usually with sequels, you often see things bigger, more explosions, pretty much everything done twice of the first one. Vol. 2 is way more grounded and emotionally inviting film. It strays from the original of it just being a fun, action movie like most Marvel movies. Guardians 2 shines with its depth, and lore with fleshing out almost everyone from the first, and while not as action oriented, it keeps with the beats of what made the first one successful. Gunn made a truly great sequel.

Okay, so comparing this to the original is always going to be unfair, but I still really enjoyed this. It's not perfect by any means but the fun, the humour, the characters, the soundtrack and, to a degree, the story is all on point. It also plays well to the emotions and has a couple of touching moments that are done quite well.

Works better than the first one, as now there's no pretense of being serious in any way. Entertaining as frick.

Not as impressive as the first but still a hell of a ride. I wish the quality of the whole film was at the level of the intro because that was fucking cool.

Some moments mainly first 2/3rds was bad. Like jokes, not cute enough, not dramatic enough. Felt like an 85 then got to 90. But there was so much fire over and over in the ending. And it makes the 1st one better. but on 2nd watch the ew/meh things are easier to ignore. imma make the scores the same mainly cuz the 1st one's 1st watch

Inferior to it's predecessor, but still a success. A lack of focus and sloppy storytelling is compensated with some good action, funny scenes and strong characters.

GotG comes back with better and enhanced special effects but with an script that's more of a tie into the MCU piece than a standalone movie. While in a way it replicates the same formula from Vol. 1, it also executes it extremely well. The music again is one of the highlights in the movie right next to Pratt performance, but the rest of the cast feel way more comfortable with their roles. This is the kind of film where you can shutdown your brain, relax and enjoy a colorful experience.

The story somehow feels much smaller this time around. James Gunn keeps the focus where it should be, on his well fleshed out characters. The themes of the film may not speak to everyone, but those it does will be impressed by the subtle emotional weight of Quill's story of his search for Fatherhood.

Prequel film idea- Kurt Russell going to different planets solving crimes,when he's not doing that he impregnates a women on that planet. He nose the truth. Full penetration.

While its's definitely not as successful as the first, Vol. 2 has the same charm and a surprisingly deep emotional core attached to it. The lovable characters are back with Drax shining again. A great soundtrack as expected, and more than solid visual effects definitely help this movie ascend to a more than solid level.

whatever. the first one was a pleasant surprised, bolstered by a somewhat eclectic soundtrack that perfectly established a unique tone for a superhero movie. as a fitting metaphor, this is a more-of-the-same sequel set to some of the most popular songs ever written, making it basically a series of music videos. take your girlfriend to this and convince her it was her idea so you can watch something interesting next time

Guardians 2 is one of the more successful sequels, out there, different enough from the first film to have a distinct voice, whilst still recapturing the magic of the first film. Unfortunately, despite having good comedy and the most nuanced villain in any of the MCU films, there were serious issues with the tone of the film. I felt as though the movie was trying to drag me in so many emotional directions that by the end of the movie I couldn't feel anything anymore. And that's a major problem.

Good soundtrack; there are many funny moments - these are the only good things in the movie. Horrible screenplay. It couldn't be more full of cliches. Full of sentimentalism. The story that shows the Gotg being hunted never showed why the batteries were so important. The narrative involving the father is just absurd. The unfinnished narrative - invoving the Sovereign - just makes it feel like the movie never really knew what it wanted to show.
