Jeremy Crabb’s review published on Letterboxd:
This is exactly the movie I needed right now. I have a hard time figuring out which of these movies I prefer. I love them both pretty much equally. They both invoke different emotions, so it really just depends on my mood. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 doubles down on the characters and makes for a more emotionally-charged movie than its predecessor, which is something I do like more about this one. Do I overall prefer the first as far as which is the easier movie to watch; maybe, but this is still a really great sequel, and one of the MCU's best so far, even if it has some flaws.
