Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' continues the team's adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill's true parentage.

The critical consensus

Perhaps not quite as fresh or fun as the original, but still very much a triumph of the Quill.

The Guardians get a welcome return to the big screen, which despite many positives, fails to match the dizzying heights of the original.

****(*)Total Film, 24/04/2017

The Marvel superhero gang are back together – including Vin Diesel’s Baby Groot alongside Chris Pratt’s Quill – and while there’s plenty of comedy, it doesn’t really go anywhere.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 24/04/2017

Whereas the first Guardians was a little too flippant and full of in-jokes, the sequel somehow manages to give even the most outlandish comic book characters an interior life.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 24/04/2017

Tears, romance, turd jokes – it's all here, wrapped in a big messy bow.

***(*)(*)James Mottram, The List, 25/04/2017

It’s… fine. But the underdog element is missing this time around.

Tips over from self-confident to self-indulgent.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 27/04/2017

It is often vastly entertaining and there is plenty of whizz-bang fun in a film that feels like a bumper edition of classic sci-fi TV – a Star Trek or Battlestar Galactica.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 29/04/2017

While driven along by its wisecracking banter, by the end there’s little to distinguish this from the rest of the superhero stable.
