Holy smokes was Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2 fun! I had a smile plastered on my face nearly the whole time. Tons of Easter eggs too. pic.twitter.com/558Q7nw8yN

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 is exciting, funny, gorgeous & a helluva tearjerker. For many, it will become their new favourite Marvel movie pic.twitter.com/Po4ZOSPs8Q

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 2. is very fun. Takes the EMPIRE “split up your characters” strategy. Drax is a hoot. Baby Groot steals the show

Hate to be the Voice of Reason, but GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 isn’t as good as the first. What felt fresh now feels forced. 2.5/4 stars
