Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ★★★½

Solid! Has a beating heart, at least. Sometimes it undercuts it’s own tension with humor that doesn’t land, and the use of recognizable needle-drops feels a little excessive towards the end. But this is definitely one of the “good” MCU movies. There’s a reason many of Gunn’s contemporaries have tried to mimic his work over the last half-decade. He “gets” these movies more than most.
