Saw GOTG2 last night and I give it an A-. It’s fun, filled with action, lots of laughs, and some tug on your heartstrings moments. Great acting by the primaries … Dave Bautista is great as clueless, caring Drax … and the new characters are perfection. I highly recommend seeing it in a theatre, 3D if you can swing the cost.
Why, then, the A-? The movie suffers a little from being stuffed too full of easter eggs and cameos (I loved all of them, but there were a LOT), and the soundtrack isn’t as spot on as the first one was. It could have been trimmed more in a few places to make it tighter, and I really couldn’t tell the Ravagers apart except for the main handful.
Spoilers, as always, below the cut with my extended review.
i love tv show intros and opening credits. i love them because they set the tone and some of them change slightly season to season or they don’t and i also just really love finding a show i haven’t watched before and whispering “are you my next life ruining mistake”
