Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Review

I had the pleasure of attending the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie. I was a huge fan of the first movie. I was very excited and long anticipating this release. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed. I feel as though the same charm from the first film carried through to the second.

Peter Quill and his fellow guardians got themselves into some trouble and they had to try to save the galaxy- again. I'll spare you spoilers so I won't tell you whether not they were actually able to save the galaxy or not. (wink wink.)

I'm not alone in saying one of my favorite aspects of the first film was the soundtrack. I was nervous going in that I wouldn’t be a fan of the soundtrack this time around. The music was great, and I was very happy with the choices made. However, my one complaint is I felt the soundtrack was a little bit forced in this movie where as the first film the score fit organically. That is a small complaint to make for an overall great movie. There was a lot of action, a lot of adventure, and even more in-depth character development.  

I was surprised of the emotional roller coaster this movie took me on. There were some deep moments in the film that tug on the heart strings- and a few unexpected surprises that will give you all the feels. Not to mention a SUPER adorable Baby Groot!

I will also say that this movie is not for young kids. There are some scary parts in the middle that would give children nightmares, some sexual themes that were very obvious, and lots of adult language. I was surprised at the level the director decided to take the adult themes in this movie; especially considering how much they’re marketing this film to young kids. So be warned going into it, you may want to preview this first before you decide to show it to your children. My kids will not be seeing it.

All in all, a great movie. I will see it again in theaters! I highly recommend it.

In celebration of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 opening, I wanted to share this featurette of Chris Pratt talking about his favorite prop on set (spoiler alert, it’s not a blaster!):
