I have been waiting and waiting for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” to come to the theaters. The first ”Guardians of the Galaxy” is at the top of my list as far as Marvel movies go and all I could think was, the sequel better be good! Holy cow, is it ever.
I got the opportunity to watch “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2” at a press screening a couple of days ago. Front row, center baby! I was a bit worried during the opening guardians reintroduction scene, where you re-meet Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel). It was such a powerful, fun and excited scene I thought they could never continue this throughout the entire film! But they did and they did it very well.
Directed and written by James Gunn (there is a team of writers credited on IMbD), he has really brought together this cast as a family. There are surprising relationships that develop with all the original guardians and the new ones. Speaking of new guardians they are all lovely additions, and compliment the team: Yondu (Michael Rooker), Mantis (Pom Klementieff) and Nebula (Carrie Gillan). The addition of Kurt Russell , Sylvester Stallone and Elizabeth Debicki plays for good conflict.
It’s incredibly beautiful and colorfully art directed by Ramsay Avery and shot by Henry Braham. The effects are the best I’ve seen for what they do, so far – so hard to describe things with no spoilers!! Don’t let me get started on the soundtrack, I’ve listened to it everyday since I’ve watched the film.
In a nutshell I loved this movie. Go see the film in the theater when you get the chance, because it’s well worth it. Go see this movie before anyone spoils it for you.
Just go see the movie. Then tell us what you thought of it!!
Don’t forget to stick around for the 5 post credit scenes!
