GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: VOL 2 – Rated PG-13

Guardians of the Galaxy

“Vol 2 is definitely an AMAZING MIX that supersedes the awesomeness of the original, at every turn!”  – Kathy Kaiser, Matinee Chat

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY – VOL. 2 – Rated PG-13 – 2 hrs 16 mins.

Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell

Back for a second go round – Writer and Director James Gunn (and the numerous other writers that came along to get this one in the can too) take us on a cosmic journey of epic proportions – so buckle up, settle in and get ready to be amazed at how awesome this sequel truly is…

Venturing the cosmos yet again, we meet our crew Peter Quill/Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) all saving the galaxy from harm at every turn…

As our team ventures far beyond in an attempt to explore Quill’s heritage, Peter confirms that Yondo’s (Michael Rooker) parenting style really was totally off base growing up, when he meets his biological father Egos (Kurt Russell).

Caught up in this new world of power and prestige, it seems that it may take ALL THE GUARDIANS to snap Quill back to the reality of who he is, and to save each other from total annihilation, whether at the hands of foes from their pasts, or from the unconditional love of our new found “Daddy dearest”… 

I give GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 a rating of MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN and in 3D!! As sequels go…this has to be one of the best EVER…as I truly loved this film even more than the original!! Of course, everyone is fab reprising their roles as the “Best Cosmic Family unit EVER” too ~ and it looks like Pratt spent a little more time in the gym, preparing for this next go round as Star-Lord as well (Anna Farris is one lucky girl!) The storyline this time around is flawless perfection as well, the imagery is flawless, as it doesn’t feel CGI’d at all, even though you totally know it is…PLUS~the casting of Russell as Eros was sheer genius…as Kurt in this role, couldn’t have been played out any better either! I even enjoyed the twist and turns of foes becoming allies throughout this incredible cinematic journey. And don’t worry about the length of this film either, as they need each and every minute to share this action-packed and family oriented story! And talk about one of the best soundtracks in a film EVER as well ~ as It’s holding a candle to SUICIDE SQUAD’s, which in my estimation, is really hard to achieve! Gunn and his team literally didn’t miss a thing, in making this incredible sequel literally – SECOND to NONE!!!
