Believe the Hype: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 is the Truth
Comic and superhero fans, Marvel has delivered yet another great ride with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Vol.2 was everything promised and more. Here's what I can tell you about Marvel's latest without giving you any spoilers:
Vol.2 is a lot more emotional than its predecessor. Every character has some meaningful development that gives the audience insight into their inner selves and their relationships. Some moments were so intense that I actually cried. (Thank goodness I had a tissue in purse so I could surreptitiously dab at my eyes while using my hair as a shield.) However, along with the great emotional moments, overly cheesy ones did manage to sneak in as well, which was a bit disappointing, as a few Disney fairytale-esque lines did make for one or two cringe-y scenes.
But rest assured: More emotion (and some accompanying cheesiness) doesn't mean that the humor has lessened--because it hasn't. Be prepared to laugh at unexpected times at witty one-liners and some nicely-executed jokes. Then be prepared for some serious suspense and great action scenes. It's all there--romance, included. (Trust me, I'm a sucker for a well-written, believable romance.)
All in all, if you haven't seen Vol.2 yet, rectify that immediately because if you liked the first Guardians movie, I can guarantee that you'll enjoy this one. And if you're anything like me, you might even go to see it a second time.
