Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ★★★★

While yes this does fall a bit short of the greatness of the first film in several areas, I'm still shocked by a majority of people calling this film one of the weakest links in the MCU. This is a very fun, enjoyable, consistently entertaining sequel. Some flaws include the story that is a bit all over the place and villains that just don't make much of an impression at all. But this film is hilarious, heartfelt, and contains some strong emotional moments that all made the first film so great. The actions also a ton of fun, the cast all work great once again despite some being underutilized (Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista), and the visual effects are terrific. No this is not as good as it's predecessor but that's a really hard thing to be considering how fantastic that movie was. But that being said I still enjoyed the hell out of this sequel and can't wait to see these characters back in the next installment.
