Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

“GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY - Vol. 2” is enjoyable, but instantly forgettable!

Packed with dazzling visuals, awesome backdrop mixtape, slam-bang action and irreverent humour, this sequel is bigger than its predecessor, but is overstuffed and lacks heft in its narrative. Never quite clever, it still manages to be extremely entertaining and worth a watch for all the MCU fans out there.

Marvel Studios' "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" continues the team's adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill's true parentage.

Fast-paced narrative, great visuals and a toe-tapping, mixed-tape soundtrack, make this film a delightful massy fare. But scrub beneath all this classy stuff, and you find hollowness in the script, that’s at best suitable for a kids-cartoon fare. It surely is as much fun as Vol. 1, but isn’t quite as fresh as its previous instalment. Despite building strong characters, the film feels insincere. I just wish the basic plot was as good as the characters. It’s still lively and likeable, notwithstanding the rambling techno-swell and general overstuffing. The performances are fair, but the fantabulous mixtape music in the backdrop makes the proceedings extremely pleasing.

To sum up, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY - Vol. 2, is a sequel that lives up to its expectations, but never exceeds the benchmark set by its predecessor. This one lacks the surprise element, yet is bang for your buck if pure entertainment is what you seek.
