Guardians of the Galaxy VOL.2: REVIEW
Director: James Gunn
Stars: Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace , Michael Rooker.
It's sequel to the 2014 movie Guardians of the galaxy. The movie is about Peter Quill finding and bonding with his dad and his team's space adventures and that's about it.
The "Good" about this movie is very limited so let's just get that out of the way as quickly as possible.
I would start with my most favorite character "Rocket Racoon" as expected he was at his humorous best. Basically, he is the one lighting up the movie throughout.
Baby Groot was the next best thing, people (Including me) were expecting him to cute and adorable and he nailed that part awesomely. plus hi Chemistry with Rocket is one the highlights of the movie.
In a Marvel movie great action is a given and yes here too the action was great. was it enough to save the movie? well, that is another question entirely, and I suggest you guys stay tuned for the "BAD" part of this review for that.
Personally, Guardians of the galaxy is my least favorite movie in the Marvel cinematic universe. But I am completely unbiased in reviewing this movie. I was expecting VOL.2 to be a let down because let's face it the first one was great but not that great plus sequels often are let downs.
The movie is based mostly on Star Lord's bonding with his dad and that is pretty cool is a pretty cool part of the movie but that's not enough to base an entire movie on. I mean you have to consider that you other superheroes in the movie too and you have to give them something to do and that something shouldn't look forced either. And the problem here is that they have given the other superheroes things to do that have nothing to do with anything and it looked forced. I mean Peter is bonding with his dad with whom the rest of the team has nothing to do with? so you give them stupid fights and adventures?
My next point is the "Golden people" what's their deal? who are they? what do they want? what do they have to do with anything? I mean they just come in makes a mess and then leave? and then come again to make a mess?
combining with the points above I would say that they rushed the movie very much, it almost looked like they wanted to just be done with it. Did they think the first one was great so people will love the second one anyway?
One of the highlights of Guardians of the galaxy (both) was the humor, and believe me I am all for it, I loved it but there is such a thing as too much humor, and that was a problem with VOL.2. They had too many jokes and too much humor and no focus on the rest of the movie.
THE FINAL WORD:
Guardians of the galaxy VOL.2 was made for "The fans" who will watch it no matter what I say, so I am talking to the rest of you Non-fans avoid this one.
