Sam's Film review (I know its early miss but I couldn’t wait to review it!)
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2
This film shocked everyone. Not just me but EVERYONE. Going into it I thought it was going to be an okay sequel to an already great movie. But BOY was I wrong. This film exceeds all expectations and in my opinion, one of the BEST marvel films to date!
So, let me just say, I respect this film for being better than the first. Maybe not everyone agrees with me but IT IS. This film pulls on your heart strings to make a franchise already great, into BRILLIANT. The characters are funny, the plot twists are insane, and it was the first time I had ever cried in a cinema. Not just one tear or two, SOBBING. (Sure, I sound like a wuss but watch the film and get back to me) The plot may at sometimes be slow, but I think that’s necessary to further the character arcs for all of the protagonists. Baby Groot is absolutely adorable, with scenes that make me just want to hug him. The way they introduce the actors in the opening credits scene is outstanding, the best in ANY movie ever made. But what I love about this film is that you don’t just think ‘That was a little bit funny’ in parts, or ‘yeah that was a little bit emotional’ in bits, it makes you go ALL OUT on your emotions. You were either laughing hysterically, or not at all. You were either weeping, or not at all. It does this to bring out every emotion you have and mush it up so at the end you feel like you watched a 10 hour long film (and not in a boring way).
Summary: This film does not fail to succeed the predecessor, as it’s not just a brilliant superhero film, but a brilliant film in general! I would say there are barely any faults apart from there being lots of antagonists which makes the plot hard to follow at times.
Sam’s rating: 9.5/10 – ‘pure excellent, one of the best marvel films by far’
