Rating: 5 million, billion, gazillion stars

Movie Description:
Set to the backdrop of 'Awesome Mixtape #2,' Marvel's 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 mysteries of Peter Quill's true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favourite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes' aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.

My Review:
Our favourite guardians are back for round 2 to defend the cosmos! More action, funkier 70s tunes and more Groot than ever before!

Let’s start with the cast…WOW.
It was fantastic to see the classic Guardians of the Galaxy come back for the second instalment in this series! From Chris Pratt rocking it out to his Awesome Mixtape #2 to the heated on-screen rivalry between Zoe Saldana and Karen Gillan; everything was twice as epic and twice as jam-packed full of energy!

As much as I absolutely adored our Guardians, nothing could stop the all-powerful forces of Kurt Russell’s character Ego and Elizabeth Debicki’s overruling Ayesha. Not gonna lie, I can never look at Kurt Russell the same way again, that’s how epic his performance was! These two were truly phenomenal and had me wanting to see more of their stories – particularly Ayesha’s, however I have a feeling more will be revealed in Vol. 3.

I loved seeing Michael Rooker return as Yondu and create a special bond between his character and Rocket voiced by the ever-talented Bradley Cooper. It truly warmed my heart and tears were definitely shed in those small sweet moments.

And how could I forget my – and probably everyone else’s – favourite character? Little iddy biddy Baby Groot! He’s so small, powerful, adorable and he had the entire cinema cracking up at those hilarious scenes between him and Rocket!

Real talk though, can we take a minute to appreciate Baby Groot? I NEED A GROOT IN MY LIFE

The action in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had certainly been raised since the first movie! Bigger space battles, freakier monsters to fight and massive decisions that could either save the cosmos or bring on an endless reign of universe-jeopardising peril. With all this action, one always needs a killer soundtrack and director James Gunn did not fail to pick some perfectly matched iconic 70s tunes to bring out the best in the scenes. And even better, the music becomes a large part of the plot in the film!

As always when watching a Marvel movie, I went home that night and researched a ton of theories about a particular character spoken of at the end of the credits – don’t leave those seats early! You won’t want to miss this!

2017’s first Marvel movie is undoubtedly one of the best sci-fi adventures you could go on! I can hardly wait for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 to hit cinemas – I need to know if my theories are right!

Have you watched GOTG Vol. 2? What are your theories? Tweet me @bookishbroadway – I’d love to hear your thoughts on the movie and theories for Vol. 3!
