First, let’s start with some general spoiler-free thoughts. I absolutely loved the original Guardians Of The Galaxy movie, so although I was looking forward to the sequel, I was slightly apprehensive because I wasn’t sure how they would develop the characters and plot established while also fitting it into the current Marvel Cinematic Universe. Infinity War is on the horizon and I wasn’t sure how much that would affect this film.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from the plot – I follow a few comic book sources so I knew the basic background to the new characters, but I was pleasantly surprised by how the film tied itself together.
The opening credits sequence is my favourite opening sequences of all time.
Don’t forget – there are five (yes, 5) post-credit scenes, so keep watching through the credits in order to watch them all. This means you’ll also get to watch several of the credits change from ‘I Am Groot’ to various phrases as well as revealing names in different sections throughout – this was a nice touch, picking up a pop culture reference and running with it.
Overall, I’m giving the film a 5/5 for its exploration of family, the relationships of existing characters and the seamless introduction of new characters. Similar to Rogue One I have a never-ending obsession for this latest addition to the MCU and I’m honestly not complaining.
The highly anticipated sequel to one of Marvel’s most original films (and Steven Spielberg’s favorite superhero movie) kicked off back in February, and now the cast and crew are about to come back down to earth. At least until they hit Comic-Con next month, as Gunn confirms in today’s wrap video, saying that he’ll be there alongside Pratt and “a bunch of the gang” to show us “something pretty cool”.
Gunn wraps shooting with Chris Pratt in the following video, indicating that production is winding down for the highly anticipated sequel of the very successful first ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’.
