Review:

The sequel to 2014’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ that surprised everyone who saw it, Marvel managed to assemble a team of heroes nobody had ever heard of and make an extremely entertaining and funny movie! The sequel is just like the first, with hilarious moments from all characters, fun action and a brilliant time at the cinema! This entry in the series is a lot funnier than the first as well, and possibly the funniest film in the ‘Marvel Cinematic Universe’ to date! The film does suffer from sequelitis, as it always would have, the sequel wasn’t necessary as the plot was thin and it didn’t need to have a whole movie made for it. It was just mainly a cash grab to bring the characters back together and to please the fans. As the first film was so surprising, there were high expectations for the sequel and I felt in terms of what it could’ve been, it didn’t reach those expectations but Marvel still presented us with an action-packed comedy fest that delivered on all levels of ‘fun’. Overall, I’d definitely recommend to all audiences and to avid fans of the ‘MCU’.
