Vol. 2 feels less like a sequel made to surpass its predecessor, and more like a continuation of a story. Much like a comic from your childhood, you know you can pick it up, continue with beloved characters, and escape into a world you are familiar with.

The Guardians series continues well here in Vol. 2, giving viewers more of what they expect in the unexpected.

Doesn't quite live up to its predecessor, but it's still enjoyable thanks to a cast with great chemistry. It's a group that seems to be having a lot of fun together, and that fun on screen proves to be contagious.

Like the array of beloved '70s and '80s tunes peppered throughout the soundtrack, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a welcome mix of the fresh and the familiar that does the job of priming the pump for another volume.

What it perhaps lacks in originality and focus is a result of a slight adjustment in priorities, and instead delivers a touching and intimate story about the nature of family.

Beyond Groot, "Guardians 2" is a satisfying sequel to 2014's breakout hit full of '80s pop culture references to Pac-Man, Knight Rider, "Cheers," and even David Hasselhoff.

Despite the film's bloated structure, and its tendency to sway and get distracted now and then, Gunn still manages to pack an emotional punch in the end, delivering a character send-off that's bound to bring most viewers to the verge of tears.

The team needs a little bit of work, but the general character development, action, and gorgeous visuals make up for that. And obviously, so does Baby Groot.

This is drippy family therapy that wants you to bask in the characters' personal breakthroughs after you're done dissing them behind their backs.
August 20, 2018
For better and for worse, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is average. And yet, to my great indignation, it still managed to move me to laughter and a few tears.
