Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ★★★

I don't know if I was expecting more. I just didn't love it.

It tries to capture the magic of the first one, but it just exaggerates everyone's flaws and at times makes it annoying. Drax is dumber, Rocket is more of a jerk, etc. Groot is pretty useless and I know he couldn't do much, but aside from a little. He felt more like a handicap. The first action scene really showed that.  It got too jokey at times (Civil War Airport Battle or Age of Ultron opening scene jokey). It's fine I guess, the cast gives good enough performances. I was just expecting more, that's all. Really disappointed that it was treated more of a comedy than anything. I don't know, the team felt much more unlikable at times.

It was fine, I guess. I didn't hate it, just passable.
