Ever since the original “Guardians of the Galaxy” film came out in summer 2014, Marvel fans, movie fans, and Chris Pratt fans have been impatiently awaiting the sequel.
Luckily it hits theatres Friday. Overall, critics are loving it. The spirit of the film, the memorable personalities, and the modern music made “Guardians of the Galaxy” feel fresh, special, and unlike any other Marvel film. Critics agree that “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” doesn’t disappoint.
While the film doesn’t feel as fresh as the original, it’s still a must-see.
Here’s what critics are saying about “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”:
'Like many a sequel to a slam-bang, much-liked mega-hit, 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' isn't quite as much fun, not quite as clever, not quite as fresh as the original -- but it still packs a bright and shiny and sweet punch.' -- Chicago Sun-Times
'It's hyperbolic nonsense wrapped in the colours of a neon rainbow, bouncing from one artfully wacky scenario to the next. Here it's sleekly futuristic, there it's older than mud. It's the galaxy's silliest thrill show.' -- Minneapolis Star Tribune
'Gunn has given us a rousing piece of entertainment with plenty of action, ingenious ideas, and visual effects to engage us at every level. That's as much as anyone could ask of a movie, let alone a sequel.' -- Leonard Maltin
