Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ★★★★

tfw you finally understand the Mary Poppins reference

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 is extremely entertaining from start to finish and a real tear jerker towards the end, couldn't have asked for much more! Seeing the crew back was wonderful, I went into this thinking Baby Groot was going to be incredibly annoying and to my surprise he wasn't, in fact he was used perfectly. Some of the cast actually give better performances than the first film (Bautista & Pratt) but some don't, I'm only referring to one person here and that's Karen Gillan, STOP. OVERCOOKING. IT! Can't say much about Zoe Saldana because she isn't really given much to work with which I found really disappointing. Bradley Cooper is once again great as Rocket however the standout of the returning cast is Michael Rooker as Yondu (Mary Poppins) Udonta, he was an absolute joy to watch and without a doubt the best part of this movie. New addition Pom Klementieff (Mantis) was fantastic & Kurt Russell (Ego) is, in my opinion, the best MCU villain we've had thus far.....BUT this film also gives us the worst villains of the MCU so far 'The Sovereign', Jesus Christ they were garbage.

There isn't really a story in the first 1/3 of the film, instead they just give us pure entertainment which I found a little distracting but thankfully in the last 2 acts it picks up and leads us into a cracking finale. Yondu's Arrow is ridiculously cool and that opening sequence is brilliant so hats off to James Gunn for this.
