Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the followup to Marvel’s hit film Guardians of the Galaxy, is out in theaters today, with many fans coming out of the flick with much excitement. The first film was a surprise hit, making over 770 million dollars at the box office worldwide back in 2014. It held a 91% on Rotten Tomatoes, so it was inevitable a sequel would arrive.

The film takes place directly where the first left off, in which Peter Quill, played by Chris Pratt, and his team are hired by an alien race to protect their batteries from invaders. Meanwhile, the team begins to unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.

As a fan of the first Guardians of the Galaxy, I had high hopes and the sequel ultimately didn’t let me down. The film delivered high quality action, and was a lot heavier on the comedy. While I personally wasn’t a fun of the overload of jokes, it still made the movie more entertaining and light. The plot of the movie lacked originality and it seemed like a pretty by the numbers Marvel Action movie, but I was completely fine with it because I was having a good time watching the layered characters and visuals.

Junior Jimmy Cronin disagreed with my opinion partially and stated, “Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is the best movie I’ve seen in years! See it immediately!”

Junior Walter Mason, on the other hand, agreed more with me saying “The movie was a really good time, while not one of the best Marvel movies out there.”

As a whole, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is worth seeing in the theater because of the great spectacles, and it is the type of movie that is better to see with a big audience. Overall, I would give Guardians of the Galaxy 2 a solid 7.5/10.

Chris Pratt, the hysterical actor who plays Peter Quill. He’s such a good guy!
