Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy rocks ratings

From Issue 7

On May 5, Marvel released Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, making around $150 million on opening night.

The movie has a great cast, with Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel as the Rocket/Groot duo, Dave Bautista as Drax, and others Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, Kurt Russell, and Sean Gunn.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 starts off with one of my favorite opening scenes, starring a dancing Baby Groot carelessly moving around while the others battle a monster.  The Guardians are fighting the monster to protect some highly valued batteries for the Sovereign, but Rocket steals them to get more money.  The Sovereign chase after them, but a mysterious man saves them and claims to be the Peter Quill’s father, but Gamora doesn’t trust him.

If you have seen the first Guardians of the Galaxy, you will definently appreicate this film because it  is chock full of tie- ins and easter eggs from the comics as well as the first movie. Theres is even a cameo for the comic book characters the wathcers, for all of the comic fans.

This is one of my favorite Marvel movies, and with a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 81% and audience score of 90%, I highly recommend it to those who haven’t seen it yet.
