Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 – Review

Mrs Earth-Prime and I saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 yesterday – and laughed our arses off.

It’s great fun, an action/superhero movie that doesn’t take itself too seriously and has some genuinely laugh out loud moments – honestly, most of the cinema was cracking up in several places.

Plot wise (and this will be spoiler free) there’s no major surprises. As just about everyone knows, Star Lord’s father shows up and the reconciliation between them is the main plot. There’s a sub-plot featuring Ayesha and her golden people which, frankly, seems almost tacked on but provides the motive for some big space battles. Relationships deepen amongst some of the Guardians and there’s lots of “we’re not friends, we’re family” type moments of realisation which, if you think about it too long, means they’re a pretty messed up family that spends of lot of time shouting at each other.

While Groot might have been the breakout character from the first film, it is absolutely Drax who gets the funniest lines throughout this one and it’s worth seeing just for him – he steals pretty much every scene he’s in, while Baby Groot, honestly, is just a little too cutesy for my liking.

There’s a whole bunch of mid-credits scenes, some of which hint at things to come, others – like the Watchers and Stan Lee – are just funny.

If you enjoyed the first, you’ll enjoy this one, definitely.

Yes! Because my turds are famously large!
